Subject: [D-Col] SUYDAM in Earliest Fairview, Illinois DRC Records
Date: Mon, 05 Aug 2002 10:59:23 -0800


Hi All,

One of my points of focus is Dutch families in Fulton Co., Illinois,
especially Fairview township. Many Somerset Co. families moved there in
the mid-1800's, as many of you know. Among them were Suydams. A cousin
kindly sent me some photocopies of the earliest original Fairview Ref.
Dutch Church records, and quite a few Suydams are in them as follows (in
order of registration); my notes are inside of ( ) and [ ]:

- John W. Suydam, elder, ordained/installed 9 May, 1850 (same day as my
2GG William Brown Hageman was, entered on the very next line)
- John Henry Suydam, baptized (only date of birth recorded, 4/7/1837),
(father) S.B. Suydam and (mother) J. Cortelyou
- Margaret June/Jane [this handwriting often renders"a" like "u" so
"Jane" is the more likely] Davis, baptized (only date of birth recorded,
9/6/1838), (father) Richard Davis and (mother) Sophia Suydam
- Richard Addis, baptized (only date of birth recorded, 3/2/1838),
(father) A.D. Addis and (mother) J.E. Suydam

11/14/1839), (father) R.[ichard] Davis and (mother) S.[ophia] Suydam

her was born 4/7/1840 and the one below was born 2/5/1841), (father)
A.D. Addis and (mother) J.E. Suydam

(father) R.[ichard] Davis and (mother) S.[ophia] Suydam
- Stephen Robison Addis, baptized (only date of birth recorded,
10/19/1841), (father) A.D. Addis and (mother) J.E. Suydam

(father) R.[ichard] Davis and (mother) S.[ophia] Suydam
- Sarah Elisabeth Perrine, baptized 7/5/1857, date of birth 4/21/1857),
(father) Joseph I. Perrine and (mother) Cath. Louisa Suydam
- Anna Maria Perrine, baptized 3/3/1861, (father) Jos. I. Perrine and

- [?] Perrine, baptized 10/4/1862, (father) Jos. I. Perrine and (mother)

perhaps this was an adult baptism, although their names were under
"Parents' Names"(?)]

Transcription notes: These records were transcribed in summary form from
photocopies of the original handwritten church records. I first studied
the handwriting and later carefully proofread my typing to optimize
accuracy.

I am willing to do look-ups for other surnames in Fairview, Fulton Co.,
Illinois, if the requester agrees to be patient with me.

Hope this is of interest to some of you.

Warmly,
Alice
