transcribed from records at the Middletown Town Clerk's Office by Vesti Snyder

It was a beautiful day for digging gardens, however I was lucky enough to squeeze in about an hour at the Middletown town clerks office today. I'm typing it out and submitting it to the Delaware County NY GenWeb site as there are so many who have written and asked for this info. The last entry I pulled from a different book while waiting to get the old book. I didn't get anywhere close to through the old book, I didn't get to marriages at all. I will try again next week if I have time, I can do look ups for anyone who needs them from the town of Middletown - just send me names and dates. I can look up to 1924. The old book is hard to read at times but I'm willing to give it a shot. --Vesti Snyder, Roxbury, May 26, 1999
