Thank you for the deed, Ginny. I don't know whether my ancestors attended
this church or not. I have searched in vain for Rufus Gillett who married
Elinor Jane Hill.
He was in the Revolutionary War and his tour of duty was in and around
Dutchess/Putnam County. I wonder if that is where he met his bride, Elinor.
He lived in CT and then moved to NY either during or right after the Rev.
War. When we visited Putnam County, I found a lot of records which I have yet
to enter into my family tree.
There never seems to be enough time to do it all but I guess I'd better get
We visited a church in Cold Spring but they didn't seem to have any records.
What they did have had been given to an elderly man and he kept them in his
home! I hope they are still there somewhere.
