This list was compiled before 1827.  Later pastors added notations such as dismissal dates, death dates and suspensions. The dates upon joining are recorded for some and others have the kind of method they used to join the congregation.  The material in brackets has been added after the year 2000 by far-flung family members who are trying to fully identify each person. Those who have more data are urged to submit it for addition.


Many thanks to Esther Rancier for contributing this list of names from the First Presbyterian Church in Mexico, NY.  Esther is researching in Richland and Mexico the Soul/Soule, Brace and Daniel P. Smith families, and would love to hear from anyone researching these surnames.
