The rolls of pastors and elders was taken from record books dating back to 1827 and is included complete. The roll of communicant members was arranged in chronological order for the first time. Reference to earlier roll books should be made by alphabetical listing. The roll of baptisms brought forward does not include names of persons born before 1960 who have not become communicant members though their parents are members. For additional names it is necessary to refer to earlier roll books. Persons born before 1960 were deemed to have reached the age of accountability." - John R. Shaw, Clerk of the Session.
