One other thought - there was a WPA project to survey the number of religious institutions during the 1930s. As part of the survey, the society representative (or in my case, its successor) filled out a background data sheet that contained some additional information. Those data sheets, which have not been digitized, are in the Municipal Archives. Their volunteers have been enormously helpful in retrieving the data sheets I was looking for, and steered me to the ultimate recipient of the original records. Unfortunately in my case I couldn’t find anything helpful, but you may find it more productive. Amazingly, there was no charge for this helpful support, but if course I did make a contribution in their honor with the appropriate nonprofit.
