The Baptist Church Cemetery Association of Parshallville, Michigan
Receipt Book
   

 

The following is a transcription of a receipt book from the Baptist Church Cemetery Association. The book was found among the Parshallville Cemetery records at the Hartland Township Hall, 3191 Hartland Road, Hartland, Michigan. The transcription was done on February 26, 2003. The transcriber was Emma Winegarner.

For the receipt numbers with an asterisk see the note for that number at the end of the table. The notes are numbered to correspond with the receipt number. The book contains a few numbered receipts with no other information. There are also some gaps in the numbering of receipts. I found no explanation for this. A few receipt stubs were torn from the book from the book. The last few receipts were not numbered. Most of the receipts do not tell why the money was paid.
