Barrett Jonas Sornberger Pastor of the Evangelical Second Church in Missisquoi Circuit Note 1 I used <> to denote stuff I added that was not in the documents, to help clarify the documents. Note 2 I used ** to denote where I had problems figuring out what the words were.

Note 3 I spelled words the way I saw them, not bothering to correct obvious misspellings. I will leave that up to you to decide if you want them left as originally misspelled. Note 4 Pages don't match up. I included the pages from the beginning index, but you will see several errors, such as there are 7 people listed on page 7, that can't be right, but I marked them so you could find them easier Note 5 I only wrote the word "witness" when it was written in the document, even though I assume that the signatures at the burials are for that purpose (but maybe not.) Note 6 There are not 24 folios as stated in the beginning. I do not know why they said that and if there are missing pages.
