INTRODUCTION

The session records of the Central Presbyterian Church of Mayfield (also called the 2d Presbyterian Church of Mayfield) are contained in two small volumes.  The first of these (7 1/2 x 6 in., 140 p.) begins with the re-organization as a Presbyterian Church in 1826-27 (record copied in full herein) and ends with the annual report of 1 Feb 1839 and the approval of Presbytery.  The second volume (7 3/4 x 6 1/2 in., 170p.) covers the period 14 Feb 1839 - 31 May 1873.  Both volumes are completely filled, are in original board covers and in good state of preservation.  The earliest records are in the handwriting of Barent V. B. Wells, clerk of the session; but from 22 May 1830, Rev. Jeremiah Wood himself kept the record throughout the 43 years that followed:

The volumes are now in the possession of Mr. James E. Wood, of Mayfield, son of Rev. Jeremiah Wood, and were loaned to the State Library through the courtesy of himself and his son, Mr. Jeremiah Wood, an attorney of Gloversville, for the purpose of copying or abstracting the records. They were received December 1917, and returned to Mr. Jeremiah Wood in January 1918.

In the list which follows, the date is usually at of examination by the session or presentation of certificate but when action was deferred for one or two meetings the date is sometimes that of final action by the session. When admission was indefinitely deferred, it has been so entered. No abstract has been made of cases of church discipline which did not result in suspension or striking from the roll. An effort has also been made to give all information found showing the places from which members came or to which they went from this church. All baptisms mentioned in the records have been noted but these include only those of adults baptized on admission to church membership.

The first annual report to Presbytery is entered in the record in the handwriting of Rev. Jeremiah Wood, except the signature. As showing the membership on the re-organization, it is reproduced:

The only recorded meeting of the session before the pastorate of Rev. Jeremiah Wood was that on 13 Oct. 1827; Rev. E. Yale was moderator. No reference to any call of a pastor appears in the record. The second recorded meeting, 5 July 1828, shows Rev. Jeremiah Wood as moderator. Apparently he had already begun his service with the church.

  

Rev. Jeremiah Wood - Marriage Resister

This record was kept in a small volume (5 x 3 in.) bound in calf and is well preserved. The entries fill 106 pages and are followed by 40 blank pages; they begin with the date 2 Sept. 1828, and close with 12 April 1876, shortly before the death of Mr. Wood. Through May 1858, the column arrangement of this original is copied in the pages that follow and this copy aims to present all names of persons and places just as they appear; the form of the date and the ages have been written in a uniform manner instead of following variations of the entries; there follow a few entries in a different form and then with 20 Oct. 1858, a form was adopted which is followed through the remainder of the volume and of which this will serve as example: "Oct. 20, 1858. Solemnized the Marriage of Hugh S. Sanford of Pittsfield, Mass. aged 25 +/- and Eleanor Banta of Mayfield - aged -." For greater convenience of use the copy of this part has been put into a column arrangement similar to the earlier entries.

  

Mayfield Reformed Dutch Church

This church was the original organization which later became the Central Presbyterian Church of Mayfield. Three volumes of the original records of this church, while still Reformed Dutch, were received on deposit by the State Library from Mr. James E. Wood to be held subject to his orders. These contain consistory minutes, records of baptisms and members, and treasurer. s accounts. The earliest consistory minute in these volumes is of doubtful date, 9 August 1792 or 1793, and refers to the body as the consistory of the Dutch Reformed Congregation of Mayfield and Broadalbin. It was resolved to have services alternately at Fonda's Bush and Mayfield; and at an adjourned meeting the name of Mayfield Church was adopted. The year is assumed in a later copy of the record to be 1793 and that is also the year assigned to the organization of this church by Rev. W. N. P. Dailey in his History of Montgomery Classics. The next minutes are of 1794 and therefore throw no light on the proper date of the earlier entries. Against this date stands the testimony of the register of baptisms whose first entry is "1792 Sept. 10th" , second entry "1793 July 14th". The treasurer's accounts begin with 14 July 1793, therefore also antedating the consistory minutes if 1793 is taken. A minute, not in the original minutes in volume 1 but copied from another source into volume 2, shows that the "Consistory of the Congregation of Mayfield on the 20th day of October 1794... Resolved unanimously that a division be made of the Congregation of Mayfield, that the part of the Congregation known by the name of Fonda's Bush shall be set apart in a congregation with the advise and consent of the (Reverend) Classis of Albany". On the 15th of November, articles were drawn and executed "to bind the Congregation of Mayfield and Fondas Bush when separated....in union in the call of a minister" . For some years these two churches with Amsterdam were served by the same minister; the latest record indicating such union is the call of Rev. Sylvanus Palmer, 9 Apr. 1816. The following year, 5 Aug. 1817, the Mayfield church joined with the church of the quot; Western Allotment of Kingsborough" (Johnstown) in calling Rev. Albert Amerman. This seems to have been the last settled pastorate in the Mayfield church and ended in 1821. The last consistory minute (except for the entry referred to below) is dated 28 April 1821 and is in the handwriting of Amerman, though not signed. A cancelled unsigned minute of "a meeting of the male members of the Church of Mayfield", 26 Sept. 1824, closes the record. Rev. W. N. Dailey says that "in March, 1823 (Fonda Records), the church withdrew from Montgomery Classis and became the Central Presbyterian Church of Mayfield". The Fonda records are presumably the county records of Montgomery county; but whatever steps may have been taken at that time, the minutes of 27 Sept. 1826, in the session records of the later church, seem to show conclusively that the dismission by the Classis and reception by the Presbytery had not then taken place.

The records of this church, now in the State Library, are the following:

1) Consistory records and baptismal register. An unbound volume, 12 x 8 in., 62 pages, of which the outside leaf is very badly stained and torn, the rest of the volume is in good condition. Collation: p. [1-2] (probably only cover), wanting; 3 - 20 (no 12 or 13; 14 being verse of 11), consistory minutes, not chronological, 9 Aug. 1793 (?)-17 Nov. 1810; [21-41], baptismal register, about 300 names, 10 Sept. 1792 - 29 April 1821; [42], Semion Christie's children; [43-53] blank; 21-33 [54-56], (25, 26 and 29 blank), consistory and congregational minutes to 5 Aug. 1817.

2) Consistory records and roll of members. A volume bound in boards, leather back and corners, 13 x 8 in., 184 pages, in good condition. Collation: p. [1], "Minutes of the Reformed Dutch Church of Mayfield Vol. 2d" ; [2] blank; [3-14], consistory minutes, 24 Nov. 1817 - 28 April 1821, in the handwriting of Rev. Albert Amerman; [14] cancelled minutes of church meeting, 26 Dec. 1824; reverse paging [1-5], roll of members, in handwriting of Rev. Albert Amerman, 174 names, 17923 - 23 Dec. 1820; [6-7], blank; [8], "Original members" and members received 1796; 2d reverse paging 1-19, 19v-25, "Copy of minutes in order occurrence for sake of record" (copy principally of minutes in vol. 1, but contains numerous minutes not contained in that volume though within the period covered by it); 136 blank pages between direct and reverse paging.

3) "Account of Money Received and paid out by the Consistory of the Low Dutch Reformed Congregation of Mayfield and Broadalbin - Instituted the 14th day July 1793". An unbound volume, 12 x 4 in., 32 pages, of which the last 8 pages have been added to the original booklet, very well preserved. The accounts are only of the petty receipts and expenditures for communion wine, pulpit supplies, etc., and run from 14 July 1793 to 11 July 1824.

  

Broadalbin Presbyterian Church

The church variously referred to in the records of the Mayfield Reformed Dutch Church as the church of Broadalbin (1793), Fonda's Bush (1794), New Harlem (1799 and later) was organized in 1795 (though in existence several years earlier) and incorporated in 1800 (Dailey); it erected its house of worship at West Fonda. s Bush, now Vail's Mills, which is just across the boundary separating the towns of Broadalbin and Mayfield and in the latter town. As already mentioned it was for a number of years under the same pastor as the Mayfield church. According to Beers History of Montgomery and Fulton Counties (1878), it was incorporated as a Presbyterian church, 13 Jan. 1823, withdrew from the Classis of Montgomery in August and was admitted by the Presbytery of Albany the following October. This is the church which appears in the records of the Central Presbyterian Church as the First Presbyterian Church of Mayfield. In 1840 it removed to the village of Broadalbin and in 1850 obtained a new charter changing the name from Mayfield to Broadalbin. Since that time the Central Presbyterian has been the only Presbyterian Church of Mayfield. See also reference under Presbytery Records.

  

Rev. Jeremiah Wood

The records given herewith are not only those of a church but likewise those of a single pastor though not complete in this that they do not quite reach to the close of his life and pastorate which ended simultaneously. At its meeting on 13 June 1876, Albany Presbytery adopted the following minute (Ms. records, new ser., 1:570-73):

Rev. Jeremiah Wood was born in Greenfield, Saratoga County, N.Y., in 1801 Nov. 11th, graduated at Union College in 1824, studied theology at Princeton Seminary, was licensed to preach by the Presbytery of Albany in 1826 Aug. 16th, commenced his labors in the Presbyterian church of Mayfield on the 26th of Nov. of the same year. He was ordained by the Presbytery of Albany as S.S. Jan. 10th 1828, and was installed as pastor in 1840. (Neither session nor Presbytery minutes record this call and installation of 1840.) Bro. Wood was a man of clear intellect and unusual power in the pulpit or in debate. Those who have known him but ten or fifteen years in Presbytery know but little of the strength and influence he possessed. He was also one of the wisest counselors and his opinions always commanded the respect of his brethren.

His deep piety, consistent life and faithful labors, made him one of the most successful pastors until the hour of his death on the 6th of June 1876, aged 75, and within a few months of the close of fifty years ministry to the same church, when he suddenly fell asleep and was "gathered to his fathers".

During these years Bro. Wood enjoyed many seasons of glorious revivals. In only one of these did he deem it expedient to call in the aid of an evangelist. One of the most blessed of these revivals was in 1873 , by which the membership of his church was nearly doubled.

Soon after the gathering of these fruits of his labors he is taken as a "shock of corn fully ripe".

In view of this providence Presbytery would recognize the goodness of God in giving so faithful a minister of so long continuance to the same people, and we would desire to heed the declaration "Be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life".

Presbytery would also express their sympathy with the bereaved family and the church now left as sheep without a shepherd.

It appears from a printed genealogy (Hopkins:  Kelloggs in the Old World and the New, 1903, 1:356) that he was the sixth child of Deacon Jonathan Wood, of Westchester County, and Susanna Kellogg, of New Canaan, Conn., who had settled in Greenfield, Saratoga County, about 1789; and that he married in Greenfield, September 1828, Thankful Bacon Hewitt who survived him by ten years.

Though the Presbytery minute of 1876 states that he began his labors in the Mayfield Church 26 November 1826, and the above genealogy makes the same statement for 26 September 1826, this can hardly have been a permanent settlement, as the church was then Dutch Reformed and its future pastor not yet ordained, though licensed to preach; we may perhaps see in a temporary relation between pastor and people a reason for the change of denomination by the church. The sketch in the Presbyterian Encyclopedia, p. 1039, gives the date of his call as pastor as 2 Sept. 1840 and his installation as 22 Sept. 1841. Whatever may have delayed his pastoral call, in all but name he served as such at least from the summer of 1828 as records herewith testify.

  

Albany Presbytery Records

The minutes of the Presbytery are not printed; the ms. records are in the custody of the Stated Clerk, Rev. Charles G. Sewall, of Albany, but the earlier records are still kept in a large safe at the parsonage of the Watervliet Church, whose former pastor, the late Dr. Olney, was Stated Clerk of Presbytery for many years. The present pastor of the church is Rev. W. D. Strangeway. Through the courtesy of these gentlemen, the records were examined for the periods of interest in connection with these records. In addition to date already given, the following notes may be of interest:

1) The application of the 1st Presbyterian Church of Mayfield, (now the Broadalbin Church), was presented by commissioners Ashbel Cornell and Ira Benedict, 17 Aug. 1823, when a decision was postponed till the next meeting; on 30 Sept. 1823, this church was taken under care of the Presbytery (ms. records, 6:237 and 262).

2) Reference is made to the "congregation of Fonda's Bush" which Rev. Mr. Wood as appointed to supply. The church was undoubtedly the Broadalbin Church and the only Rev. Mr. Wood who was a member of Presbytery then was Rev. Halsey A. Wood, pastor of the Amsterdam Church, who died 10 Jan. 1826 (ms. records, 6:274 and 373). So far as known he was not closely related to Rev. Jeremiah Wood.

3) James Wood, licensed 17 Aug. 1824, called to the churches of Amsterdam and Weddesbirgj (Veddersburgh), 15 Aug. 1826, ordained and installed as pastor, 5 Sept. 1826 (ms. records, 6:408 and 421). He was an older brother of Rev. Jeremiah Wood and in one of more printed statements seems to have been confused with the younger brother.

4) "Messrs Herman F. Van Buren and Barent V. B. Wells appeared in Presbytery as commissioners from the Dutch congregation in Mayfield, with a request, that the said congregation be taken under the care of this Presbytery.," Reference to dismission by Classis, 15 Feb. 1827. Church received. (ms. records, 3 May 1827, 6:475-76).

5) The successor to Rev. Jeremiah Wood was Rev. Benjamin A. Bartholf, who was received into Presbytery and accepted the call to Mayfield, 14 Feb. 1877, being installed 8 March 1877. (ms. records, new ser., 1:613-14.)

Records

"At a meeting of the Reformed Dutch Church at Mayfield Sept. 27th 1826.

"Resolved that it appears to us conducive to the interests of this church that immediate measures be taken in order to place ourselves under the care of the Presbytery of Albany.

"Mr. Barent Van Buren was accordingly appointed as a commissioner of the church to present to the Classis of Montgomery their request to be dismissed from their connection for the above purpose. A dismission having been received was presented to the Presbytery together with a request to be received under their care which request was granted.

"March 19th 1827. The church met (p.2) according to previous notice when Rev. Elisha Yale was requested to act as moderator and Barent Wells was appointed clerk.

"After reading the confession of faith of the Presbyterian Church it was unanimously adopted.

"Resolved that the Church proceed to the election of two elders and one deacon and that they be elected by ballot.

"Barent Van Buren, and Barent Wells were then chosen elders, and Herman F. Van Buren a deacon.

"June 25th 1827. The elders and deacon elect were set apart to their respective offices by Rev. Elisha Yale, John K. Davis, John Clancy, and Gilbert Morgan.
