Churches and Pastors of Seneca County New York

These sketches of the churches and pastors of Seneca County New York, do not purport to give a detailed history of their organization, growth and present condition. The compilers and publishers, however, did endeavor to make it what its title claims, an accurate “Manual” of the churches and pastors, as they existed at the opening of the year 1896. To the pastors themselves, or some member of the respective churches, they were indebted in some instances for the historical sketch, and in others for the material from which they wrote. Some gave them greater detail than others, and in some cases, as will be seen, the roll of membership was furnished; but from the material at hand the compilers endeavored impartially to give as full a synopsis of local history as was possible. The sketches, even when edited, are given as from the local writer’s standpoint. The large membership of the Catholic churches compelled them to restrict their lists to only those who rented pews.

In the arrangement of the book, they listed the towns geographically from south to north and the churches in the towns alphabetically by denominational name, except in two or three instances where delay in receiving the sketch or cut compelled a transfer to later space. To the church manual, proper, they appended sketches of five clergymen of different denominations, whose ministerial work seemed to entitle them to a place in this volume.
