Early Settlers of Hackensack, N. J.

Contributor Phil Rivera

A list of the early settlers in the upper part of Bergen Co., N. J., up to 1700, taken from the Church membership, and the Marriage Record, of the Hackensack congregation. This church organization at this time occupied the field between Bergen and Tappan, in an area of about 10 miles around Hackensack (these three congregations believed to be the only ones existing at that period in the vicinity of New Amsterdam (New York) on the Jersey side).
