Montville New Jersey Reformed Cemetery

Church Lane Montville Twp. Morris County New Jersey

Contibuted by Kevin Riley on 22 Feb. 2001

Kevin's Notes:

The Montville Reformed Church started in old Boonton about 1756. About 1818, the church moved to Montville/Persepeny to be more centrally located, and it incorporated Dec. 18, 1818 as the First Reformed Dutch Church of Montville (it's name to this day,according to papers found by Doug Graham at the Church.) About 40/100's of an acre was purchased from Garret Duryea , also in 1818, for the church and cemetery. (History of Morris County New Jersey p. 252-3)

Among the Elders was my ancestor, John Collerd. The Collerds moved to Montville about 1810. Before that, they lived in Bergen Township, where John was a clerk in the Bergen RDC. Before a church had a regular Minister ( or Dominie) , the churches had Voorleezers , who kept records , taught school , etc.After the Bergen Church received a full time Minister , John became a clerk from 1789-1809 (Documents Relating to the Colonial History of the State of New Jersey Vol. 22 p394) He was paid 2 15s per year for his labors (ibid p7). Ministers were in short supply and they traveled from Church to Church. They incorporated when a regular Minister was obtained . John died in 1830, and is buried in Bergen Twp. His widow is listed below.

Mahalo to Walt Olson for sharing this with me, and ultimately, you

No transcribers' name appears on the manuscript. There were a few obvious mistakes and typos I corrected, and a few things I pointed out. Hopefully, no one will have to do the same to my work.


All names are as I found them

* This person not buried in this particular plot. Most usually the internee's parent(s) or spouse. This was marked on the manuscript

+ This person not buried in this plot. See above. Not marked as noted above in the manuscript. My notation.

All notes in (parenthesis) from the original. My additional notes are marked KR The period the person was alive is written as year/month/day ; hence 67/3/11 means 67 years/3 months/11 days
