      The first church [in the Minisink Region] was called the Mackhackemeck Church; and was located about a half mile south of where Port Jervis now stands, and about half a mile from the junction of the Neversink and Delaware, in a north-easterly direction, and near the residence of Mr. Eli Van Inwegen, by the old burying-ground. The second stood about eight miles south-west from the Mackhackemeck, in the present township of Montague, or Sandiston, N. J., at the crossing of the turnpike and highway, near the site of a store kept for some years by one Judge Stull, and was called the Minisink Church. It was torn down many years ago, and a new one erected about one mile from its first location, due north. The third stood sixteen miles farther on in New Jersey, and was called the Walpeck Church. It has Iong been torn down. The fourth was eight or ten miles distant from the Walpeck, and was called the Smithfield Church.

      [Note by compiler: Montague Township is located in Sussex County, NJ.]

      MONTAGUE [TOWNSHIP] . . .

      THE REFORMED (DUTCH) CHURCH.

      The earliest records of this church bear date 1737, it having been one of the four Dutch Churches organized along the Delaware by Rev. George Wilhelmys Mancius, of Esopus. These churches? known in history as the Machackemack (now the Reformed Dutch Church of Port Jervis, N.Y.), the Minisink, at Montague, the Walpack, and the Smithfield Churches? were organized at the same time, a Consistory having been formed in each body, which performed consistorial acts. The Rev. Mr. Mancius visited the field every six months to hold service and administer the sacraments until a minister was settled over them.
