I am back on Roswell and Ellen.
I am looking for information about a publication, the "First Baptist Church of Brighton", covering 1818 - 1854.
The Genealogical Guide to Monroe County, pg 13, says it is held by the Rochester Public Library - RPL GRT, don't know what that means.
According to one researcher, the book states Roswell and Ann Bush were admitted by letter into the First Baptist Church and dismissed to the Second Baptist Church in July 1834.
I understand the 2nd Baptist Church was founded on March 12, 1834 by 53 members from 1st Baptist Church.
Roswell and his 2nd wife Mrs Ellen White were married by the Rev Mr Church in 1841. That would be Pharcellus Church who in 1835 assumed the pastorate of the First Baptist Church.
Ellen's 1st husband, George White, died in Canada in 1837. I am hoping to find out if the 1st Baptist book includes any information about Ellen or George.
