I have typed the list in columns for males and females, just at it appears in the book, but when I looked at the Preview, this Ancestry list prints it as a series of names. Thus, the first on the list is male, the second is female, and so on. The final nine names are all females. I have placed a dash in between each entry. I assume that the names in parentheses are the masters. A few are identified as free. Some have no masters name listed, but are not identified as free- I do not know what this means.
I do not know who completed the transcription from the original record.
The book also includes an 1858 list of 55 white members, and various other information on the history of the church. The church is still there (near Concord) but has a different name.
