Research Notes

Marriage Records, 1832-1900. The Marriage Records are misfiled they can be found as the last 48 images (Images 102-149) of Birth and Death Records: Vol A. Image 102 shows the inside cover and the first page of this book. On the inside cover there is attached a sticker telling us that this the data in this book has been copied for W. W. Hinshaw by Mrs J. E. McMullon in 1933 and 1934. There is an inscription on the first page however it is illegible. Image 103 shows the second and third pages. On the third page is an inscription which reads: Record Book for Marriage certificates. The first book called Book A of the Mississinew Monthly Meeting of Friends, 12th Month 19th 1832. (Isaac R. Smth) The last 46 images (Images 104-149) represent 100 pages of marriage certificates.
Birth and Death Record: Volume A. Image 1 shows the front of the book it appears to be labeled Births and Deaths. The Image 2 shows the inside cover and the first page. On the inside cover there is attached a sticker telling us that this the data in this book has been copied for W. W. Hinshaw by Mrs J. E. McMullon in 1933 and 1934. Inscribed on the first page is a note telling us that this book was acquired for the purpose of recording births and death for the Mississinewa Monthly Meeting of friends in Grant County, Indiana, 3rd month, 4th 1842 (4 Apr 1842) and labels this as Book A. The first 8 pages are shown in Images 3-6. These pages are the index for the records in this book. Images 7-101 are image of numbered pages however they are not in order. The last 48 images (Images 102-149) are not part of the Birth and Death Records - Book A, but rather they are the Marriage Records which are missing in Ancestry.com's index.
Membership Records: Volume 1. This book is represented by 128 images. The first image (Image 1) is the inside cover and the first page. On the inside cover there is attached a sticker telling us that this the data in this book has been copied for W. W. Hinshaw by Mrs J. E. McMullon in 1933 and 1934. And on the first page there is an inscription which reads Mississinewa Membership. The next 13 images (Images 3-15) are the index for the records. Images 16 -128 represent 113 numbered pages. The origin of this record book is found in Birth and Death Records Vol A were practically every entry has a note written in a separate hand stating to which page in the Membership Book it was copied. In other words The Membership Book is a derivative (at least in part) of the Birth and Death Records Vol A.
