LIST OF EARLY MEMBERS OF THE MARION, N.Y
FIRST REFORMED CHURCH


The Marion First Reformed Church records below were compiled from original church material by Harold DeBrine and completed in 1992. We are most grateful to Mr. DeBrine for giving us permission to post them on this site. A copy of this list is available for viewing at the Office of the County Historian.

"The people are listed in the order in which they became members. The names are exactly as they were recorded in the Consistory minutes. It cannot be assumed that all are spelled correctly. Many were later changed as the people became Americanized." Harold DeBrine, deBruijne in Holland & old Flanders.

Excerpts from a note from Jack Bathrick: "Just wanted you to know that I got lost on your site in the wee hours this morning and thoroughly enjoyed myself! I went there not because I was looking for my ancestors but because I was trying to answer a query from one of several lists I'm on. Like so many times before, I soon found some ancestors (SCHOONERMAN) and began to explore the site for them as well. I did notice an extraneous "d" in the spelling of SCHOONERMAN..."Marinus Schoonderman and wife Maria de Smit". After my "find" I had fun sending emails to three families of my eight grandchildren giving them your website and a history quiz about their GGGGGrandparents Marinus and Maria."
