1908 Donations to the Tioga Church

 I’ve been reviewing some scans of the materials I made on one of my previous group trips to the Family History Library in Salt Lake. The difficulty with any trip is organizing all the material one collects.
This comes from the church secretary’s book from the Tioga Evangelical Church in Tioga, Illinois in 1908 (now Bethany United Church of Christ). Several donations of $1.00 are shown in this image, including one from John M. Trautvetter, my great-great-grandfather.
Records of these donations at the very least give the user knowledge of when a person was last known to be living, if other records are not available. Of course, some individuals are not even named–note Mrs. Kammerer[?] and Mrs. Altheide. But at least it may be a start.
