CHURCH RECORD SUNDAY ~ Susan Rosette–Presbyterian Church Record–New Jersey

Susan Boylston Rosette is my husband’s paternal 3rd great grandmother.  She married Dr. Abraham Rosette on 30 May 1804 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Using Legacy 9, I created a relationship chart that shows how my husband is connected to this couple.

I recently located a church record for Susan Rosette in the U.S., Presbyterian Church Records, 1701-1970.  The record lists her as the widow of Abr. and gives his death date, which coincides with my records.

Church records can be valuable tools and provide a lot of information about our ancestors.  Especially given that vital records were not required or kept at a state or county level until the late 1800’s, in most jurisdictions.

If you’ve found information in church records, I’d love to hear about them.  Also, if you are related to either the Rosette or Boylston families, please get in touch with me.
