Menallen Minutes, Marriages and Miscellany: Quaker Records, 1780-1890


Menallen Monthly Meeting began keeping minutes for both the men's and women's meetings at their first meeting in 1780. The books, after they were filled, were eventually turned over to the Friends Historical Library, Swarthmore College, Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, where they have been microfilmed and stored. The records have been alphabetically arranged for this book and include such topics as requests for membership and appointments. The marriage certificates are listed in chronological order and indexed as to husband, wife, and parents. (Maiden and married names of women are given when possible.) Burial records are arranged alphabetically. Inscriptions from eight Quaker graveyards are included. The inscriptions for the graveyards at Menallen, Friends Grove, and Huntington in Adams County, and from Redlands in York County were obtained directly from the tombstones themselves. The inscriptions from the other graveyards (Old Griest, Warrington, Newberry and York) were obtained from lists in the possession of Menallen Monthly Meeting.
