Summary
Register, 1757-1869, including baptisms 1757-1869; communicants and confirmations, 1826-1865; and a few death records. There are no entries for marriages, but some lists indicate maiden names. All entries are in German until around 1820 when the Reformed congregation began to use English in addition to German. The Lutherans continued using German until around 1840. For the most part, entries are chronological, with each congregation's entered alternately. Appearing toward the end, however, are many Lutheran lists in German for the earliest years. Accession 20797b is a duplicate of this register bound with the Solomon Lutheran Church Records, Accession 20797a. Also available on Misc. reel 1145, St. Mary's Pine Lutheran Church Records. For a published translation and transcription in which the entries are arranged by subject and alphabetized see, 200 YEARS IN THE SHENANDOAH VALLEY, THE SETTLERS AND THEIR PINE CHURCH, by Arthur Pierson Kelley, 1973

Biographical or historical data
This church, formerly known as Old Pine Church, was replaced by a second union church in 1783. In 1787, John Pennywitt, a French Huguenot who became a member of the Reformed congregation, granted both congregations title to the church property. The Lutheran and Reformed congregations shared the same building until 1873 when the union was dissolved and each congregation built its own church. The Lutherans dedicated St. Mary's Pine Lutheran Church on 1 November 1873. The Reformed congregation dedicated Grace Reformed Church on 29 August 1875.
