The First Methodist Church of Rochester was organized in 1820. On May 3rd 1933 the Church building was destroyed by fire. The Church's records were in the building, and while saved from the fire, they were so badly damaged by water that there was but little which could be read.

Only the following marriages were distinct enough to transcribe.
