I am trying to locate the church records of what may have been the Methodist/Episcopal Church of Richfield Springs. The building was bought by St. John's Presbyterian Church located on West Main Street. My ancestors, Deacon Benjamin E. PALMER and his wife Polly, as well as some of their children are buried in the church cemetery. The church records should contain info about the PALMER and related families, since Benjamin was a Deacon in that church. I have been to the rectory, but that pastor did not know where the previous church records went to. Your help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Looking for information concerning marriage of Coenradt (Conrad) Wiles and Margaret _____. Their son, Henry, (believed to be their oldest child) was baptized by Rev. Schermerhorn at the Dutch reformed Church of the Town of Otego on April 12, 1807. Coenradt and family and his father Henry Wiles and family may have lived on Wallaces Patent near the village of Otego, NY at that time. They may have moved from Montgomery County sometime prior to 1807. Henry Wiles, who served in the Revolutionary War, died at Huntsville (Otego?) in Otsego County in 1821. Would apprecaite any information concerning Henry Wiles or any of his children which we believe included Coenradt, Adam, Christian, Joseph, John, and Peggy. Where is Henry wiles Buried?

Looking for information on ancestry of Henry Wiles (Weyl, Weil) and Elizabeth Fritcher (Fritscher). Earliest information we have is their marriage at the Reformed Church at Stone Arabia, Montgomery Co., on Oct. 4, 1768. Henry died in Huntsville in Otsego County NY in 1821. Elizabeth died in 1852 in Cortland Co. NY at the agoe of 104. Much of our information comes from a Revolutionary War Record which consists mainly of Elizabeth's application for pension in which she eictates all she remembers about Henry's service (fascinating!!). Incidently, the record indicates that he fought in the "Oriscany Battle with the Indians and British". Historical information concerning the Battle of Oriskany does not include his name. Should it? We believe the children of Henry and Elizabeth included: Coenradt (Conrad) born about 1771 (our ancestor)
Adam born about 1781
Christian born 1789
Peggy (married Nicholas Coanradt)
We have much information on the Wiles from 1768 to the present that we are willing to share.

Looking for a Conrad (b. 1749 Mont. Co.) and Elida WINNE or WINNIE who lived out their later years in Cherry Valley, N. Y. Conrad, according to a Jeff. (NY) Co. history, was born 1749.
