MarriagesAt The Old Corn Hill Methodist Church, Utica, N.Y., 1854-1886

Reference to the Church:  Utica for a Century and A Half, by T. Wood Clarke, Utica, N. Y.: The Widtman Press, 1952: South Street Methodist Church (Corn Hill Methodist) - This church was organized in 1852, with eighty-two members, under the leadership of Thomas J. Francis, and the following year built a small church on South Street. The first pastor was John Inskip. The church continued to thrive until 1920, when it then became affiliated with the Central M.E. Church.

These marriages records were abstracted from a list of marriages that took place in Utica, Oneida County, N.Y. at the former Corn Hill Methodist Church. Originally "transcribed through the courtesy of Rev. Roger F. Williams of the Northern New York Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church." Copied by Alice Payne Garder (Mrs. Henry) of Utica for the General Winfield Scott branch NSDAR, West Winfield, 1942. It was noted in the original D.A.R. transcription (1942) that the church was "now South Street M.E. Church". All spellings and question marks are exactly as in the typescript. The transcriber, Mrs. Alice Payne Garder, stated that some of the pages were difficult to read so spellings are her interpretation.

Many thanks to Martha Magill, coordinator of the Herkimer/Montgomery Counties GenWeb, for contributing these marriage records.
