One of the first clergymen to serve the early Pennsylvania-German settlers, John Casper Stoever maintained a ministry in southeastern Pennsylvania for a period of fifty years, during which time he kept a record of the baptisms and marriages he performed in his missionary travels. Stoever's journal, which was written in German, was translated and published in a limited edition, without an index, in 1896. Copies of the work have been eagerly sought after but have not been available for years, for which reason we are pleased to publish this reprint edition, adding to it the index so sadly lacking in the original.
