RUTLAND, MASS. VITAL RECORDS
Rutland, Massachusetts, Birth Records
To the end of the year 1849. Published 1905.
Publisher's Note.
The list of Rutland Births, Marriages and Deaths comprised in this volume includes all that were found in the Town Books covering the period from the earliest date there recorded to the end of the year 1849. Baptisms, Marriages and Deaths from the records of the First Church, and Deaths from the gravestone inscriptions in the old Burial Ground have been added to make the record as complete as possible, and these sources are indicated in each instance by proper reference.
All of the records are condensed in print as much as is consistent with intelligibility, accuracy, and completeness of information. Differences in duplicates, and explanatory or other matter which seemed necessary or desirable, appear in brackets.
Marriages and intentions of marriage are printed under the names of both parties, but the full information concerning each person is given only under his or her name. An asterisk after a marriage indicates that the intention was not found recorded, and in many cases this is accounted for by the fact that neither party belonged in Rutland, and consequently publishment was made elsewhere.
The double date is used in the months of January, February and March prior to 1752 only when it so appears in the original, and instances of the modern form after 1725 are not uncommon.
When places other than Rutland and Massachusetts are named in the original records, they are given in the printed copy.

INSCRIPTIONS ON THE TOMB STONES AND MONUMENTS
IN THE GRAVE YARDS AT WHIPPANY AND HANOVER, MORRIS COUNTY, N.J.
Whippany Grave Yard
Published 1905.
Note--
The first church erected in Morris County, N. J., was at Whippany, and in the ground about it the earliest settlers of this region were buried. The church was afterwards removed to Hanover, about three miles to the eastward, and subsequently burials were made both at Whippany and around the new church.Genealogists who have traced the families here represented, have had frequent occasion to search for and copy inscriptions on the grave stones found in these cemeteries. To preserve these records from destruction exact copies have been taken, and to make them convenient for examination this pamphlet has been printed. As far as possible, eccentricities of spelling, &c, have been carefully preserved.
