In 2002, a member of the Meares Research Group found and shared an index record for a Moses Roberts, son of John and Ann, born 15 Jan 1809, baptized 18 Jun 1809.

The website she shared in 2002 is no longer up but I found the same title in Peter J Roberts' Bibliography of Bahamian Genealogy at http://bahamianbib.blogspot.com/ and http://www2.gsu.edu/~libpjr/bahgen.htm

Early baptisms of Abaco Recorded in the Harbour Island Church register : Register of Births and Baptisms, St. Johns Parish, Harbour Island. Abaco, Bahamas : [s.n.], [180?]. Notes: 28 leaves. Photocopy of church records from Harbour Island (Eleuthera) which are available at the Miami-Dade Public Library System. OCLC Number: 32648093. Transcription of this photocopy http://home.attbi.com/~libpjr1/hiabbap.htm

Peter's transcription link is also down but can still be viewed via http://Archive.org.

Has there been discussion regarding whether the Moses in the index and  Moses Roberts are the same person? The register isn't noted as a source on his profile so the index entry may have been researched and determined to be someone else. I'm just getting back in to the swing after taking a hiatus and may have missed it.

Are images of the original register online anywhere?

Hi Debi:

The data on Moses Roberts on the WikiTree profile is available in the Archives in Nassau (where I reviewed them), and in "Early baptisms of Abaco Recorded in the Harbour Island Church register : Register of Births and Baptisms, St. Johns Parish, Harbour Island. Abaco, Bahamas : [s.n.], [180?]. Notes: 28 leaves" where I photographed them in Miami last month. If you'd like a copy of Moses Roberts' record, on page 6, email me and I'll be happy to share it.
