Congregational Church Death Records 1815-1824, 1831

Dolbeer Death Records - Jonathan Dolbeer was the clerk for the Epsom Congregational Church most of his life, and as such, kept a diary of deaths in Epsom. The only mention of this book was in the former "Granite Monthly" magazine in a series of articles called 'Epsom Early Settlers' (the inspiration for this website), but in turned up in the archives of the Epsom Historical Association, overlooked for many years. There are a few deaths record in the actual church records starting 1815 for a few years. The town books started to list deaths in 1850, but some years were missed. In 1887 they were printed in the town reports. John Dolbeer started his list in 1819 with just listing by year, later he added month, day and age. After he died about 1857, his nephew Calvin Dolbeer continued the work until 1874. As such, this is the only actual complete record of deaths for the town of Epsom, and I have yet to see it in error.This is transcribed in such a fashion as you will need your browsers find capabilities to search for individuals.
