St. Peter's Episcopal Church, Delaware, Ohio: The First One Hundred Years, 1817-1918. A Collection of Documents and Genealogical Data - Mary Anne Denison Cummins. This book contains a transcript of the church’s Vestry Minutes of 1817–1918, which name pew-holders for a number of years as well as all vestrymen. A list of marriages from church records, courthouse records and newspaper notices follows. The final chapter, biographical sketches of almost every person named in the Minutes, is a treasure trove. The obituaries usually tell where and when the decedent was born, the parents’ names, the wife’s maiden name, where surviving children settled, and the daughters' married names. Data is given on at least fifty families, including: Andrews, Avery, Barnes, Bills, Bradley, Burnham, Butler, Campbell, Chamberlain, Converse, Cox, Donavin, Dyke, Eaton, Edington, Engard, Finch, French, Griswold, Heim, Howard, Husted, Hyatt, Jamison, Jones, Kilbourn, Lamb, Latimer, Little, Luttgen, Mansur, McElroy, Meeker, Owston, Pettibone, Platt, Potter, Powers, Rhodes, Walker, and Williams. Every source available was used: county and family histories, cemetery, census and courthouse records, information from descendants and more. An every name index completes this work. (1993), 2010, 5½x8½, paper, index, 398 pp.
