There are three records pertaining to the Family of Amos and Rachel Small are found in the Birth and Death Records of the Friends at Mississinewa Monthly Meeting.

This book has three parts, first is the index, the second section contains birth records, and the third section contains the death records.


The first record is found in the index of the Birth and Death Records.[1]

Mississinewa Monthly Meeting, Birth and Death Records, Index.[1] Numerous other Smalls occur in the index. These are cousins. The Sarah A Small in the third column is not Amos and Rachel Small's daughter.

Amos Small appears twice, first time at the top left, in the S column (Page 12). And he appears a second time in the same column, after the solid line (Page 85). These two pages are shown below.


The bottom half of page 12 in the Birth and Death Records[2] we find the birth dates of Amos and Rachel's family.

Mississinewa Monthly Meeting, Birth and Death Records, page 12.[2]

Note should be made that Rachel's eldest son, Amos' step-son, Alfred Harris, does not appear. Amos and Rachel's daughters Anna, Hannah and Edith are also missing, as is their eldest son Samuel.

More interesting is the vertical note which tells us that this information has been copied onto pages 23, 24 in the membership book.[3][4]


Here on page 85,[5] is recorded the birth and death of Sarah Ann Small, the daughter of Amos and Rachel Small.

Mississinewa Monthly Meeting, Birth and Death Records, page 85.[5]

The record indicates that Sarah Ann Small resided Grant County and is buried in Mississinewa Friend Burial grounds. This is highly unlikely as her family did not move to Grant County from Wayne County until two years after her death.[6]
