MADISON ASSOCIATE REFORMED PRESBYTERIAN church

Thanks to Bob Scott for submitting the following list of members from churches that no longer exist. According to Mr. Scott this church was sometimes called the Madison Associate Presbyterian Church but it was more accurately named the Associate Reformed and there was a big difference in Scottish politics and religion. It was one of the Scottish churches that became a United Presbyterian Church. When the church filed its trustee election on 12 July 1855, it filed a list of members present. These are records filed in the early mortgage books that were on the upper shelves in the Recorder’s office. The mortgage books were not consistently labeled. The 1847 book was simply labeled 1847—49.
