NEW PROSPECT M.E. CHURCH  BAPTISMS  1858 ~ 1872

 

Jean Morris

The New Prospect ME Church is located at 25 Franklin Turnpike Waldwick and functions today under the name Waldwick United Methodist Church.

Compiler Jean MORRIS obtained these records following in the fall of 1998, transcribed from the original registers housed at the Waldwick United Methodist Church. This listing of baptism records is not complete as compiler only copied the years pertinent to her research. She notes some of the spellings may be incorrect since the handwriting is hard to decipher.

Phrases written in parentheses are compilers comments and are not part of the original documents.
