Births and Deaths, 1814-1883
Births, Deaths, and Burials
In the 17th and 18th centuries, Friends kept records of the births and deaths of members only. If a child was born to two Quakers in good standing at the time of the birth they were considered "birthright." On the other hand, Quaker burial grounds were not generally select. Non-members could be interred in Friends' grounds. Includes indexes of names at front and back of volume. Lists the membership status of individuals.
