Where are Quaker Records Nine Partners, Duchess County NY pre-1745

+2 votes

Palmer, Horace Wilbur,. Palmer families in America. Neshanic, N.J.: Neshanic Print. Co., 1966 references the Quaker MM records for Nine Partners (Great Nine Partners) in Duchess County, NY in relation to this William Palmer. The Nine Partners Quaker records at Ancestry appear incomplete and those archived at https://archive.org/details/quakerrecordsnin00soci/page/n6 also appear incomplete or lack records prior to about 1745. Thus this William Palmer and his wife Rachel Fowler (who is the current subject of my research) appear nowhere in these Quaker sources. Does anyone know where the earlier Nine Partners records may be found? Horace Palmer cites them but nowhere indicates were he found them.

The sources page on WikiTree for Nine Partners appears to contain records dated after those that would include William and Rachel. I don't see that they appear in those on the resource page.

From what I can gather, Oblong and Nine Partners Meeting was not granted until 1744 by Purchase QM.

I think when I follow this over to the Swarthmore Hazard Index most of the family appears in Purchase, Oblong and Nine Partners at different periods but the very early records appear scant (lost?). Hazard uses an abbreviation not on my list of shorthand which is: ack. What does that abbreviation stand for?

Rachel Fowler Palmer doesn't appear anywhere in the Hazard index under any of the three MM though she supposedly outlived William.
T, I don't know the answer to your question regarding what the Quaker abbreviation "ack." was intended to mean. In the county court where I worked for many years, I have seen that used to mean acknowledged.

For anyone else looking for these records, here's the link to the Hazard Index at Swarthmore which is searchable by name, MM, etc. and has indexes for Purchase, Oblong and Nine Partners although the very early records appear thin.
