to the End of the Year 1849
Newcomb & Gauss Co.
The following records of births, marriages, and deaths
all entries to be found in the books of record kept by
town clerks; in the church records; in the cemetery
inscriptions; and in the private records found in family
Bibles, etc. These records arc printed in a condensed form
which every essential particular has been preserved. All
duplication of the town clerks' record has been eliminated,
differences in entry and other explanatory matter appear
brackets. Parentheses are used when they occur in the
original records; also to indicate the maiden name of a mar-
ried woman, and to show variations in the spelling of a name
the same entry.
When places other than Montague and
in the original records, they arc given in the printed
Marriages and intentions of marriage are printed
the names of both parties. When both the marriage
intention of marriage are recorded, only the marriage
is printed; and when a marriage appears without the
intention being recorded, it is designated by an asterisk. In
records the original spelling of names is followed, and
various forms of family names have been placed in one
alphabetical arrangement. The records of Montague being
it has been thought well to include the information in
Direct Tax records and those of the United States Census.
