Unitarian
Unitarian Universalist Email from Anne Marsh, Co-Minister, Feb. 2002: Our church was organized in 1825 as the First Universalist Society, then, in 1961, changed its name to the Unitarian Universalist Church of Canton when the Universalists and Unitarians merged. Despite this longevity, however, we do not have any church records (of members, marriages, etc.) from the 19th century. Such records must have been kept at the time, but no one knows what happened to them. So... All we have are the following: Membership records from 1937+ Marriage records from 1940+ Death records from 1940+ Child dedication/baptism records 1938+
