Many of the transcriptions found here are now in published form. They have been published by the Orange County Genealogical Society (in Goshen, New York). Volume 3 includes my Volume 3 and Volume 5. Volume 4 includes my four parts of New Milford history. There is a planned Volume 5, which will include my Volumes 6, 7, and 8, Part 1, which is about 250 transcriptions. They can be purchase through the Genealogical Society. Just Google them and print out the order form. Or they can be purchased from the Warwick Historical Society. They are also on sale at the gift shop at Baird's Tavern. I would like to thank the Genealogical Society and Dan Burrows for their efforts. Started a new blog for images of Warwick.

This is an old photo of Elias Fancher that I won at auction. The studio was E.F. Still which checks out. There was an Edwin F. Still by 1866+ in Warwick at the corner of West Street. The back of the photo has Elias Fancher. Father of Darius Fancher. The seller states that the item is from the estate of William Bradner which fits in with the genealogy of the Fancher family. Lilly Fancher, daughter of Darius Fancher, married William Bradner of Warwick. Elias Fancher had the house on Route 94 across from the 1810 house, from which the current owners run an antique business. The Fanchers were an early family in New Milford. Elias was a founding member of both the Edvenville Methodist Church and the New Milford Methodist Church.
