Alfred 1)Seventh Day Baptist Church at Alfred NY. has a new pastor. Some one has kindly sent the Sabbath Recorder a program of the installation exercises which we give our readers here, hoping that some of the good things said in the meeting on Sabbath morning may also be furnished for publication.

    Looking for a birth or death certificate for any and all relatives of Daniel Williams born Groton, Conn. 1794-1845 died buried in Richburg, NY relatives lived mostly in Allegheny Co. NY 1800’s? and on and many were members of Seventh Day Baptist Church’s in Western up state NY. Thank You

  2. The Church shown with this article is actually the Alfred Station Seventh
    Day Baptist Church which was a splinter from the Alfred SDB church in the mid 1800’s.
    The church shown in the photo (which could have been taken today) is still very active locally as well as in the SDB Denomination!
