Correspondence primarily concerns the dismission of ministers from the Association, either due to relocation or to activities incompatible with the expectations of members.

Overview

Background Note

The Caledonia Association was an association of the Congregational ministers of Caledonia County. It's date of organization is unknown. A newspaper clipping, "History of Caledonia Association" by Rev. A. W. Wild of Peacham (Folder 13), is the third in a series of articles and covers the years 1836 to 1846, so the Association's founding must have predated 1836.
