Records of the Dutch Congregations of Freehold and Middletown, 1723-1735

The Records of the Dutch Congregations of Freehold and Middletown continue in the Genealogical Magazine of New Jersey with volume 23 (1948). The first entry, the baptism of "A daughter" of Willem Kouwenhoven would bear the date of 21 April 1723 (the last date found in the records published in volume 22). The last record is dated 17 August 1735. The baptism record is followed (on page 93) by a "list of Church members." This is corrected when the records continue in volume 24, which explains that the list is "actually a group of signatures." Nonetheless, the signatures belong to persons who were members of the church at Freehold.
