St. John's Cochrane Street Methodist Church Marriages

What follows is a list of all Pike marriages in the St. John's Cochrane Street Methodist Church records held at PANL as of May 2006. This list constitutes a typescript of my handwritten extraction from photocopies of the original records, which is to say that I may have inadvertantly introduced some errors while transcribing and typing... as always, you should double-check against the original records. That said, if you spot any mistakes that I have made, please let me know at Additional Pike entries from other Newfoundland church records can also be found on my website.
