Dutch Reformed Church of Fleming 1860's Marriages

The last marriage I wrote about occurred in 1854, performed by S. R. Brown. The next record of marriages in this transcription are those performed by Rev. John Garretson in the 1860's.

There are two marriages for 1861.
September 18th, John Graham of Fishkill, Dutchess Co., NY married Phebe A. Hasbrook of Scipio, Cayuga Co., NY.
March 1861 brings the marriage of J. Beekman Rawles, a Lieut. in the United States Army, to Phoebe A. Garretson of Owasco, Cayuga Co., NY. Perhaps he was in the military prior to the Civil War, which began in April of 1861.

1862 brings three recorded marriages.
June 28, 1862 is the marriage date for Wm. Alexander Stone of Peterboro, Madison Co., NY to Rose Marie Dickey of Smithfield, also in Madison Co., NY.
August 24, 1862 is the marriage of Daniel Miller of Owasco, Cayuga Co., NY to Elsie Cole of Port Byron, Cayuga Co., NY.
December 3rd, David B. Post of Fleming married Sarah Parsell of Aurelius, NY.

The next few transcriptions appear to be out of order. First there is August 28, 1863 and the marriage of George W. Miller of Scipio, NY, to Celia Stocker, also of Scipio. The next entry is for 1862, and is in January; this is the marriage of Nathan V. Whitlock of Portland, Iona Co., Mich to Mary A. Harris of Great Harrington, Mass.

The next entry is for 1863 again, and for December 24th. It is the marriage of Cornelius Hornbeck of Owasco and Caty State (first letter of her name is difficult to read)of Auburn, Cayuga Co., NY.

These are all the transcripts I have available. I hope you are able to find an ancestral gem!
