Church of Our Father Signature Book 1883 to 1912

Names of Members

Archivist Note:  It appears that maintenance of the membership list was lacking over the years. This listing should be used only as a reference and not a definitive research tool in determining membership.  Whenever entries were found in meeting minutes regarding individuals joining the church or as frequently stated “receiving the right hand of fellowship,” entries were made in this document.  A notation indicating that the Archivist inserted the entry is noted in the Comments column.

A review of Annual Meeting minutes where lists of subscribers to the church are detailed is an additional source of information on actual church membership.
