The records of the First Congregational Church of Rushville, New York are in two parts. Part 1 is church and congregation meeting minutes (item 1-1: 1829-1898), concerned primarily with membership and discipline (not described past 1868). Part 2 contains Related Legal Documents (item 2-1: 1802 1868), a Pew Rents and Pledge Book (item 2-2: 1860-1873), the Church Manual (item 2-3: 1869), and Sunday School Records (item 2-4: 1820-1824). Note that the target sheets for items 2-1 and 2-4 are incorrect; item 2-1 contains a Statement of Incorporation in addition to what is listed on the target, appearing between numbers 4 and 5, and dates for item 2-4 are not June 11, 1820 - June 10, 1821, but are 1820-1824. The Sunday School Records are in poor condition, containing in reverse chronological order 3 entries of annual meeting minutes. In addition, the first 17 pages are illegible.
