index

Page numbers in italics indicate illustrations. Spellings in the minutes are extremely variable, and have been regularized in the index for ease of use. For instance, Willbur, Willbore, Wilber, Wilbor, and Wilbur are all entered as Wilbur. Common name variants are cross-referenced where appropriate. People with the same name are differentiated if they are distinguishable in the context of the minutes. Women are indexed under both maiden and married name if they can be identified as the same person from the context.
