Description

The practice of renting pews was common in 19th century churches; members paid a fee for the right to occupy a particular pew every week. This bound manuscript includes a record of pew rents paid to Second Presbyterian from 1794 to 1795. Entries are listed by pew number and congregant name, with dates and amounts paid, and they span two pages, verso and recto.

After page 6b, the manuscript starts over from the back, with records of graves and tombs that were moved from the Second Presbyterian burial grounds in 1867.
