1842-1896 (Item I)
Note: Covenant meeting minutes are not described in detail since they were difficult to read.
The volume opens with 16 pages of membership records which include names, date and how admitted and dismissed (1842-1873). A similar list is found after the August 20, 1865 minutes (August 1, 1872-1895).
This is followed by a clipping from the "Corning Daily Journal," December 31, 1898 announcing that the church had paid all debts on its new building.
Minutes of the Council called upon to form the church (August 24, 1842) the Church Covenant, and Articles of Faith precede monthly covenant and annual election meeting minutes (September 1842 - June 1896). There are no minutes for May 1861 - January 1865. The pages containing May-August 1850 were filmed out of order.
