      Pp. 178-179

      The complaint [against Dominie Theodorus J. Frelinghuysen], besides the names of Simon Wyckoff, Peter Dumont, and Hendrick Vroom, is signed by sixty-four heads of families, of which fourteen had been either elders or deacons, five church masters, and two justices of the peace. These names are evidently gathered from all the congregations, and formed the strength of the opposition. It is certainly not a formidable force but it contained enough to make?as it did?a lasting trouble. Frelinghuysen never saw the end of it. We give these names to indicate the weight of the opposition, in other words, the Conferentie men at this time, namely, . . . Albert Low. . . .

      Pp. 268-269:


      THE records of the church commence on the 25th of August, 1752, and recite that the consistory of North-Branch, on account of the necessity of establishing the Christian ordinances and having the Gospel preached, had consented to dismiss . . . Albert Low and his wife, William Low, . . . in all eleven persons, for the purpose of forming a new congregation, and continues to give notice that Bernardus Verbryck and Abraham Dubois were chosen for elders, and Johannes De Mott and William Low deacons in said church and congregation of Neshanic. This record is in the handwriting of Dominie Johannes Frelinghuysen, of Raritan, and gives us the date of the organization of the Neshanic church, and the names of the first consistory.

      Or a preceding page, but without date, referring evidently to the same matters, are certain articles of agreement between persons formerly belonging to the church of North-Branch, with certain others from other congregations, agreeing or covenanting to call a neighboring minister belonging to the "Coetus," and maintaining the doctrines of the Articles of the Synod of Dort, 1618 and 1619, and to provide a proportionate maintenance for him, according to the service which he may render; to unite, for this purpose, with the congregations of Raritan, North-Branch, and Millstone; to commence the building of a church for said new congregation between the residence of David Genoe and "the Lawrence Line," the site to be determined by a majority of voices of those who have subscribed toward its erection, with other minor considerations, all showing how deliberately they entered upon the work of establishing a new church. This covenant is subscribed by . . . Derick Low, . . . men of substance and character, and enough to warrant the undertaking.
