Town of Otsego Marriages 1802-1813

The following was extracted from The Otsego Farmer, April 28, 1922

Mrs. George Lathrop of Schuyler Lake has presented to the Village Library of Cooperstown, N.Y. an ancient copy of the Bible owned by William Lathrop, Esq., of Otsego Township which contains valuable genealogical data connected with his family. Along with the Bible there is the original copy of the Record of Marriages performed by him as a Justice of the Peace in Otsego. The dates run from October 1801 to March, 1814. These records may be of value to persons looking up family lines for the records of these dates are often difficult to find in New York State. The entries usually read like the specimen given as the first in the series. Following it are the names, dates and addresses as they occur.
"October 25th 1801 then was joined in Wedlock Jacob Lambert of Otsego and Hannah Lewis of Springfield by me William Lathrop Justice of the peace Otsego County."
