Kevin's Notes:
After 1824 there was a separation in the First Reformed Dutch Church of Montville, and some became the 'True Reformed Church'. My ancestor Henry Mourison and his wife, Catherine Alyea, sold the land that would become the site of the new church (see below). Dominie James Brinckerhoof left the established Montville Church and started the True Reformed Church 2 miles south of the Reformed Church on the road to Pine Brook. The congregation was "small in the beginning and without much increase in numbers". ("History of Morris County New Jersey" p.253) They built a Church 24'x36' and a wooden shed to park horse and carriage measuring 18'x85',holding services until the late 1880's.

The schism between the 'True' and 'Reformed' Dutch Churches centered on the Coetus party which wanted ministers ordained in the New World and desired separation from the classis of Amsterdam , while the Conferentie party wanted Dutch doctrine and values and tended to form the 'True Reformed' Churches. It was known as the 'Seceder' church. Falling on hard times, the building was sold and moved to use as a shed. Dick Van Duyne says the cemetery is abandoned and overgrown.
