Gershom Cathcart (1767-1852) and Polly Taylor (1775-1858) were married in 1794 in Goshen, Massachusetts. The information about the Taylors and their 8 children - births, marriages and deaths - is all on this one sheet of paper. Blank registers like this were for sale in the early 19th century and were then filled in with names and dates. Sometimes, as in this print, the register was decorated by watercolor painting.
