The Congregational Church at Redding, CT

Updated: Feb 5, 2019

The Congregational church was the first church in the town of Redding, Connecticut. The church was formed in 1729, with the building erected three years later in 1732. It operated until 1906.

Vital records for the church can be found in this book:

"The History of Redding, Connecticut, from its first settlement to the present time, with notes on the Adams, Banks, Barlow, Bartlett, Bartram, Bates, Beach, Benedict, Betts, Burr, Burritt, Burton, Chatfield, Couch, Darling, Fairchild, Foster, Gold, Gorham, Gray, Griffin, Hall, Hawley, Heron, Hill, Hull, Jackson, Lee, Lyon, Lord, Mallory, Meade, Meeker, Merchant, Morehouse, Perry, Platt, Read, Rogers, Rumsey, Sanford, Smith, Stow, and Strong Families",

by Charles Burr Todd, 1906.

My ancestor, Frederick Dykeman, lived in Redding, briefly. Two of his daughters were baptized in the church in 1744 and 1746, and perhaps others. The death of Frederick's father, John (Johannes) "Dikeman" is also recorded on page 220. He died on April 28, 1768, at the age of 97.
