Church membership records of the Chestnut Street Methodist church
The top line reads MEMBERS IN PORTLAND. The five columns are headed (from left to right): NAMES WHEN REC. WHEN DISMISSED WHEN EXCLUDED WHEN DECEASED
About one third of the way down the page (13th and 14th from the top) the names of Robert and Eunice Harmon (Ellen's parents) are struck through in the record book. The WHEN EXCLUDED column reads, SEPT. 1843 FOR A BREACH [of] DISCIPLINE UNDER PECULIAR CIRCUMSTANCES. The name of Ellen's sister, Sarah, is also struck through, with the same notation, 11 names further down the page.
