DESCRIPTIVE CATALOG OF THE MEMBERS OF THE FIRST CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH
MIDDLEBORO, MASSACHUSETTS
(Continued from the Church Book published in 1854)

EXPLANATORY NOTE A few pages from this book were town out so please if you do not see all your names do not be alarmed. The names are numbered at the left chronologically in the order of joining. Dates are generally expressed by number of year, month and day. Figures in parenthesis following a name indicate husband or wife. Other figures denote kindred; thus " fa 964 " appended to a person's name would mean that his father's name is numbered 964.The labor of preparing this list of names from number 108,5 to 1281 was largely done by the late deacon Alfred Wood.The first thirteen names following, beino, those of present or recent members, are repeated from the volume of 1854
