New Jersey Church Records
Baptisms at the First Reformed Dutch Church of Montville 1821-1828transcribed by John E. Sashenosky (1968)
transcribed for the internet by Kevin Riley.
Kevin's Notes: I have no idea how complete this is.The original records (1774-1928) are microfilmed on LDS film FHL US/CAN # 888747 and should be checked. Records of the Dutch Reformed Church, Pompton Plains, N.J., and of the Reformed Dutch Church, Montville, N.J., 1737-1873 (FHL US/CAN Film 888715) may also be of interest to the researcher. Unfortunately, some families in the area used the Gansegat Reformed Church in Fairfield, Essex County, which records were destroyed by fire in the 1880's. Acquackanonk Church should also be checked; some Montville folk show up there, and a tiny handful of Gansegat records are also recorded there.
I left all spellings as they appeared in the transcript. It is a Dutch church after all, so be prepared for anything. I did rearrange these somewhat chronologically,as the listings were a bit haphazard, even by Minister. As you will notice, sometimes the baptismal date was used (25 March), sometimes the birth date (born 12 Feb.), and sometimes both were used (12 Feb./25 March). Unfortunately, this church rarely kept records of sponsors; what you see is what was there. My own notes are marked (-KR). Some early listings are confusing and are probably twins, but I am not positive.
