PREFATORY NOTE. 



The First Reformed Church of Easton was founded dur- 
ing the earliest period of the settlement at " The Forks of 
the Delaware," and has been identified with the borough 
and city of Easton throughout their entire history. The 
church building which the congregation at present occu- 
pies was erected in 1776. It is the only public building in 
Easton remaining from the days of the Revolution, and for 
nearly half a century after its erection was the only church 
building in the town. Its record books, which possess 
the rare distinction of being continuous and unbroken for 
nearly a century and a half, are contemporaneous in their 
origin with the early beginnings of the settlement, and 
contain information of greatest value to the many thou- 
sands of the descendents of "The First Settlers of the 
Forks of the Delaware"; for the settlement having from 
the first been prevailingly German, nearly every family in 
the community, at some time or other in its history, left 
some trace of itself in the records of this old German 
Reformed Church. For genealogical purposes it is be- 
lieved that this publication will prove of great value to 
many people. On a moderate estimate there are nearly, 
or quite, 20,000 names recorded in this book. The de- 
scendants of the people for whom these names stand, 
though scattered far and wide, will here find material for 
Iheir family history which is simply invaluable.

THE FIRST REFORMED CHURCH 

OF EASTON, PENNA. 



THE FORKS OF THE DELAWARE. 



HAT is now known as " The City of Easton " was 
originally called "The Forks of the Delaware." 
By this name it was designated by the Indians 
themselves, long before the appearance of the 
white man at this most beautiful and romantic spot, and 
though the white man gave it a new name, the Indian to 
the latest generation clung tenaciously to the title given by 
his fathers to the place where the Lehigh River empties its 
waters into the greater Delaware. To the Colonial and 
Continental authorities seeking a council with the original 
proprietors of the soil, Teedyuscung, the Great King of the 
Delawares, said — " I will treat with you nowhere else 
than at the Forks of the Delaware." 

If we are curious to know how this original name of 
the place was exchanged for that which the city now 
bears, we are told that when the first settlers established 
themselves here, about the year 1739, ^^^ territory of 
Northampton County was a part of Bucks, and that when 
the new county was surveyed and the town established by 
the authority of Thomas Penn, it was directed by him that 
the County should be called Northampton and the town 
Easton. The town was thus named in honor of the house 
of Lord Pomfret in England, Thomas Penn having mar- 
ried the dauc£hter of Lord Pomfret.

Who was the first adventurous white man to set foot on 
this most beautiful and romantic spot, or who first drew 
up his canoe on the pebble-covered tongue of land that 
originally extended far out between the Delaware and 
Lehigh rivers at their intersection, no one can tell ; but as 
one stands on what remains of *' The Point," as it was once 
called, and looks about him at the high hills and bold 
bluffs, on all sides shutting him in, he may imagine the 
wild and romantic scene that must have presented itself to 
the eye of the first white discoverer of " The Forks of the 
Delaware." High hills on all sides round frowned down, 
covered with dark and primeval forests ; no house or 
human habitation was anywhere to be seen ; no sign of 
civilized man anywhere appeared. Here the dusky 
children of the forest were the only inhabitants — and com- 
paratively few they were in numbers who dwelt perma- 
nently in this wild and rugged region ; for " The Forks of 
the Delaware " was rather a mere meeting place for the 
Indians than aught else — a place in which " to light the 
council fire " rather than a place of permanent dwelling. 
Better lands for the building of towns and the cultivation 
of the soil could be found elsewhere than amongst these 
high hills. The more powerful Iroquois had their habi- 
tation in the Genesee valley in western New York ; the 
Lenni-Lenape dwelt eastward along the Delaware, the 
Delawares northward in the Minnisink region — but no- 
where could a council fire be so well lighted as where the 
two great rivers joined their waters with the mighty hills 
as witnesses of their union. And to these council fires, 
long before the advent of the white man, the Indians came 
down the Lehigh from the west in their light birch-bark 
canoes, or down the Delaware from the north, holding 
here their conferences of peace or war, trade or barter,

at the well-known and far-famed "Forks of the Dela- 
ware." 

For centuries they had held undisputed possession of this 
charming spot, when the first white man, crossing the sands 
of New Jersey or descending the hills of the Lehigh, pen- 
etrated to this favorite Indian rendezvous. What his name 
or what his experience we know not, but we are told that 
one David Martin in 1739 built the first house at "The 
Point," as the intersection of the two rivers was then called 
— a log cabin, rude enough no doubt, but comfortable, and 
long celebrated as the scene of very important transactions 
between civilized and savage man. Here David Martin 
established his ferry, carrying the adventurous trader or 
the occasional traveller across either the Lehigh or the 
Delaware in his rowboat, for a reasonable consideration. 
The inquiry may naturally arise concerning the necessity 
for a ferry at a time when the white population was so 
sparse. Its existence at a date so early may perhaps be 
explained by the fact that when the town of Easton was 
duly laid out in 1750 by William Parsons a considerable 
population had already gathered on the New Jersey side 
of the river opposite, Thomas Penn in 1752 expressing 
some fear that what is now Phillipsburg might prove a 
dangerous rival to Easton, and suggesting that it might be 
prudent to secure all the land possible on the Jersey side of 
the river. At all events, Martin's ferry seems to have 
proved a profitable investment both to its original founder 
and his successors. 

For it did not always remain a mere Ferry House, but 
was at an early date enlarged into a hotel, kept at first by 
one Nathaniel Vernon, and in his day it became the cele- 
brated scene of many important Indian treaties, all of which 
were held here until the erection of the church on Third 



4 The First Reformed Chttrch of Faston, Pa. 

Street, which afforded larger and better accommodations. 
These treaties were attended by certain very celebrated 
persons on the white man's side — by the Governor of New 
Jersey and his staff, by the Governor of Pennsylvania and 
his staff, by William Parsons and Conrad Weiser and other 
eminent people ; and on the part of the Indians, powerful 
chieftains representing at times as many as eighteen or 
nineteen distinct tribes here assembled — amongst whom the 
representatives of the powerful Six Nations held first place, 
though Teedyuscung, King of the Delawares, in his cocked- 
hat covered with lace, and arrayed in his broadcloth coat 
cut in the height of the French fashion, must always have 
been a commanding figure. These conferences often lasted 
for two or three weeks at a time, and upon them the des- 
tiny of empires depended. What grand speaking must 
have been done on that historic point of land by these dusky 
warriors, and what scenes of revelry were there witnessed 
when the Council broke up in peace, and "the lock and 
chain were taken off the cask of rum," to the terror of the 
white inhabitants and the wild joy of the savage lovers of 
the white man's fire water, who believed, as an experienced 
chief once declared, that " In every barrel of rum there 
were a thousand songs and fifty fights." 

The great historic interest which clusters about this spot 
should, we think, induce the wealthy citizens of Easton to 
purchase " The Point " and transform it into a neat and well 
kept public park, in which there should be a suitable monu- 
ment commemorating the great events which there occurred 
in Colonial times. A granite statue of an Indian, in full 
warrior costume, holding the pipe of peace in his hand ; or 
a suitable memorial to William Parsons, the father of 
Easton ; or both combined, might well mark and beautify 
the point of land, visible from all our railroads, which 
originally gave the name to " The Forks of the Delaware." 




THE FIRST GERMAN SETTLERS. 

T is evident that from a very early period in the his- 
tor}^ of the settlement at " The Forks of the 
Delaware," German immigrants bore a very 
important, if not a very conspicuous part. Cer- 
tainly they constituted, at a very early date, the major 
portion of the population. It is true indeed that they do 
not figure very largely or prominently in the early annals 
and records of events, but in the early history of Easton, 
as in that of many other sections of Pennsylvania, this is to 
be accounted for largely by the circumstance that the Ger- 
mans, though often constituting the bulk of the population, 
were not acquainted with the English language. The Eng- 
lish language necessarily had the preference in a colony of 
England ; it was the only language employed in the courts 
of justice, in the Councils of the Province, and in all corre- 
spondence with the mother country. Such being the case, 
our German ancestors were of necessity excluded from office- 
bearing in the affairs of state to a large extent, and in all 
public transactions in the early period of the colony have 
therefore left a trace of themselves entirely disproportionate 
to either their numbers or their importance in the true life 
and development of the State. They were perforce con- 
strained to leave to others the pleasing task of writing the 
history which they were helping so largely to make. Be- 
sides this, it is to be remembered that the German is con- 
stitutionally modest and retiring. He does not possess the 
disposition of some other nationalities to push and elbow his 
way to the front, preferring rather to sit quietly and bide 
his time. So true are these facts that it has been well said 



6 The First Reforined Ckicrch of East on, Pa. 

that "the Pennsylvania-German Society will, to a very 
large extent, compel the history of the great Common- 
wealth of Pennsylvania to be rewritten." 

We cull a few facts from which it may well appear that 
the Germans were a very important factor at an early day 
in the history of Easton.^ "In a letter dated December 
8, 1752, six months after the first sessions of the Court, 
William Parsons says that there were then eleven families 
living in the town (probably about fifty men, women and 
children) ; and in the histories of Northampton County 
and Lehigh Valley we have a list of these families and 
their callings — William Parsons, Clerk of Courts, etc.; 
Lewis Gordon, lawyer; Henry Alshouse, carpenter; 
Abram Berlin, smith ; Nathaniel Vernon, ferryman ; 
William Craig and John Anderson, tavern-keepers ; Paul 
Miller, tavern-keeper; Ernest Becker, baker; Anthony 
Esser, butcher ; John Finley, mason ; Myer Hart, shop- 
keeper." 

The first church and school-house was erected in 
Easton b}^ the agency largely of the German settlers. In 
the year 1746 the Rev. Michael Schlatter came to this 
country from Switzerland and Holland, to visit the scat- 
tered people of the Reformed faith in the provinces of 
Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia. In 1751 be re- 
turned to Europe to report to the Synods of South and 
North Holland which had sent him forth. To the churches 
in Holland as well as in England he appealed for help for 
the destitute settlers in this new land, and on his return to 
America in 1752 he brought with him very substantial 
tokens of the interest of Christian people in these German 
settlers, in the shape of numerous bibles and a very 
considerable amount of money for the establishment of 

'Gondii's "History of Easton," p. 15.

churches and schools. Of these bibles, one is still in 
the possession of the " First Reformed Church of Easton." 
And as for the schools — it is recorded that, in order to 
make effectual Easton's portion of the Schlatter School 
Fund, on the 31st day of July, 1755, the following "do 
hereby engage and agree to and with William Parsons, 
James Martin, Peter Trexler, Esqr., John Lefebre, Lewis 
Gordon and Peter Kichline, deputy trustees, mentioned 
and appointed by the trustees general of the said charitable 
scheme, that each of us will pay the sum of money, and 
do and perform the work, labor, and service, in building 
and erecting a school-house, which may occasionally be 
made use of as a Church for any Protestant Minister, to 
our names hereunto respectively set down and affixed" —

The above list tells its own tale concerningr the German 



8 The First Reformed Church of East on, Pa. 

element of the population of "The Forks of the Dela- 
ware " more than twenty years before the signing of the 
Declaration of Independence. The Germans were rela- 
tively numerous, but they were neither wealthy nor conspic- 
uous. They were making history — or helping largely to 
make it — but they were not much employed in recording 
it ; they could handle a pick, a shovel or an axe — and they 
knew well how to handle a gun, too, as we shall shortly 
see — but not being masters of the language of "the 
powers that be," they were not expert in making reports 
of things done. They were at a disadvantage, evidently ; 
but on the whole and in the long run, history is just. 

Not only did the Germans lead the way in the religious 
and educational interests of the new community ; they 
were equally zealous in things patriotic. In 1763 the first 
military company was formed in Easton for defence against 
the Indians, the following being the agreement by which 
the members bound themselves to service — 

"Wee, the undernamed subscribers, doo hereby joyntly and 
severally agree that Jacob Arndt Esquire shall be our captain for 
three months from the date of these presence, and Be allwise 
Ready to obeay him when he sees ocation to call us together in 
pursuing the Indians, or helping any of us that shall be in dis- 
tress by the Indians. Each person to find arms and powder and 
lead at our own cost and have noe pay. Each person to find 
himself in all necessarys : to which articl, covenant and agree- 
ment, Wee Bind ourselves in the Penal sum of Five pounds, Law- 
ful monies of Pensilvania, to be laid out for arms and ammuni- 
tion for the use of the Company, unless the person soe Neglect- 
ing to obeay shall Show a lawfuU Reason. Given under our 
hands this 13th day of October 1763."

In the year 1828 a certain Mrs. Anne Royall, " a notori- 
ous newspaper satirist and novelist," made a journey in a 
stage coach from Philadelphia to Easton, an account of 
which is to be found in a volume in the library of the State 
Historical Society, entitled "Mrs. Royall's Pennsylvania, 
or Travels Continued in the United States, 1829." ^ In her 
account of this visit to Northampton County she says that 
Easton " contains one court house, one county house, one 
jail, one market house, four churches, two banks, one 
public library, seven merchant mills, one academy, nine 
store houses for flour, etc., four oil mills, two sawmills, 
two breweries, one distillery — and four thousand inhab- 
itants. . . . Easton is settled by Germans, though the 
most of them use the English language, and are well edu- 
cated. The professional men, particularly, are greatly 
superior to those of New York and not inferior to (if they do 
not excel) those of any other town. There is a plain, un- 
moved intelligence about them, similar to the people of the

Western States. ... It would seem that good sense, 
good size, good manners and hospitality, which once dis- 
tinguished Philadelphia, had fled for shelter to this part of 
the state. The people remind me of the French, partic- 
ularly the young men and women, being very fond of 
music and dancing. You hear the violin and the piano 
forte of an evening almost in every home." She dwells 
at length on the various enterprises and public improve- 
ments at Easton — the bridges over the Lehigh and the 
Delaware, and especially upon the Lehigh Canal, over 
which the Lehigh coal is transported from Mauch Chunk 
to Philadelphia. This canal, she tells us, cost $800,000 
and has fifty locks. " And these are the ignorant Ger- 
mans ! I begin to think these ignorant Germans have a 
little sound sense, and a great deal of wealth and judg- 
ment, with all their ignorance." 

In the very valuable "History of the Lehigh Valley " 
we read that "In 1752 when the County of Northampton 
was laid out, there were nearly 6,000 inhabitants, of whom 
600 were Scotch-Irish, in Allen and Mount Bethel Town- 
ships, 300 Dutch (Hollanders) in Smithfield, and the rest 
Germans. In some of the townships there is not an Eng- 
lish name to be found on the assessment list." 

We would certainly not withhold any honor or credit from 
the people of any nationality — English, Irish, Scotch or 
French — who bore a part in the early settlement of " The 
Forks of the Delaware," but neither do we think that the 
patient labors of the silent Germans should be overlooked 
by the writers of the history of Easton. 



THE OLD CHURCH RECORD-BOOKS. 



^^ F these there are three, two of which are devoted 
jmSfLt to the record, chiefly, of baptisms and marriages, 
^awl the other to that of deaths, burials and marriages. 
Two of these books were evidently purchased 
about the same time, viz., about the year 1766. This 
we know from the fact that the first entries are in the 
handwriting of the second pastor of the congregation, 
the Rev. Frederick L. Henop, who became the pastor 
in 1766. There are indeed certain entries of an earlier 
date, pertaining to the ministerial acts of the first pastor. 
Rev. Mr. Weyberg, who became pastor in 1763 and 
remained only six months ; but it is evident, both from 
the handwriting and from explicit statements to that ef- 
fect, that these entries were made not by Rev. Mr. Wey- 
berg but by Rev. Mr. Henop, who transcribed some of the 
records of Mr. Weyberg's brief pastorate into the church 
book from scattered memoranda left by him on his depar- 
ture. 

From this circumstance we are warranted in the belief 
that these church books were first used about the year 
1766. The two are of the same size, quality of paper, and 
general appearance, except that the one is bound in hog 
skin, the other in sheep. 

These books are noteworthy as containing three distinct 
water-marks, which are herewith given, representing 
Britannia with her sceptre in hand and accompanied by the 
inevitable British lion grasping the thunderbolts of power. 
The smaller one carries the crown and initials of Georgius 
Rex — King George the third.

The preservation of these books through so many years 
in fairly good condition is something to be grateful for, 
especially when one remembers that in the early days of 



IRioFatria 




Easton's history there were no tire-proof safes in which 
they might be kept, and efforts at protection against fire 
were yet in their infancy. Indeed, one object the author 



The Old Church Record-Books. 13 

had in undertaking the work of translating and publishing 
these records was that they might be secured for all time 
against the danger of destruction by fire. Once published 
and distributed, in families and public libraries, it was felt, 
while fire might destroy some of the copies, it could never 
destroy all. 

An examination of these books shows that, unfortu- 
nately, no list of the membership of the church was kept 
from the beginning. The record of births and baptisms, 
marriages and funerals, along with certain other matters 
was, however, carefully kept, albeit in handwriting occa- 




sionally crabbed even to provocation. In the earlier years 
the handwriting was something marvellous, and from be- 
ginning to end was embarrassed by a singular admixture 
of the English way of writing. This English tendency in 
the script increases as the years go by, and in the latter 
days of Father Pomp held almost an even chance with the 
German — the records being made indifferently in Ger- 
man or English, apparently as the mood held the scribe. 
And not only this, but what is even more puzzling at times 
is the way in which letters in the same word are formed, 
now after the rule of the one language, and again after 



14 The First Reformed Church of Easton, Pa. 

that of the other. Though, on the whole, these records 
were well kept and clearly written, the ink showing as 




black at times as the day it left the nib of the quill with 
which the writing was done. However, it is provoking 



The Old Church Record-Books. 15 

how occasionally the family name — the very name that 
is most important of all — was so very indistinctly and un- 
certainly written that the author has been obliged to spend 
many hours with magnifying glass in hand trying to de- 
cipher the uncertain inscription, it being so very distress- 
ing that the very thing you most want is the very thing 
that is so obscure, while what concerns you little is so very 
plain. 

Faithful these dear old scribes were, however, and hon- 
est as the day was long. Though English and German 
and Latin be mixed, and family names sometimes spelled 
with a small letter instead of a capital, yet every essential 
of a good, clear and reliable record is here. Variations 
there are in the spelling of family names, indeed, the same 
pen often failing to write the same name twice consec- 
utively in the same way — yet this is always likely to hap- 
pen. Whether, for example, it be Ehrig, Erig, Ehn'ch, 
Erich, or some other form, will probably not prevent the 
family of the Ihries from recognizing their ancestors and 
ancestresses. But it is to be feared that if this work 
should ever fall into the hands of a family by the active 
name of Jtimfer, the members thereof will hardly know 
their Colonial ancestor under the very odd way in which 
his name is spelled in this book — Tschumper . But alas ! 
the scribe sometimes spelled a name phonetically, and 
wrote it down in the book just as it sounded to the ear, 
leaving matters to a more critical period for disentangle- 
ment ; and the letter j being always a difficult task for the 
German tongue, nothing better could be done for it than 
honor it with the combined sound of t, s, c and h. 

The most remarkable case of this kind gave the trans- 
lator a world of trouble. Here was a family name, plainly 
written Mokelerei. It was indeed a strange name. One 



i6 The First Reformed Church of Easton^ Pa. 

hesitated to put it down, lest nobody want it, or even own 
it. But there was no getting around it ; there it was, and 
so down it went as it was written — Mokelerei. And what 
fine family, think you, hides behind that odd-looking 
name? After much study and careful consideration of the 
matter, the translator ventures the opinion that McCleary 
is the family name intended. These old German scribes 
do not appear to have been familiar with the method and 
manner of writing Scotch names, the Mc's and Mac's be- 
ing quite beyond them, as is shown in this record by the 
name '■'■ Mecdaniel.'''' When therefore a man by the name 
of McCleary presented himself for marriage or the bap- 
tism of his child, the good German pastor could do nothing 
better than simply write the name in the book as it sounded 
to his ear, and there it stands to this day — '•^ Mokelerei^ 

From the fact that at a very early day there were Eng- 
lish and Scotch people here at the settlement of " The 
Forks of the Delaware," it has been argued that there 
must have been an English Church established here at an 
early period. It is very doubtful. No trace of any Eng- 
lish Church in Easton, in any regular way, can be found 
prior to the year 1800, the records of the Presbyterian 
Church beginning 181 1. That an English Church could 
have once existed here and become entirely extinct, leaving 
no trace of itself, is hardly possible. Where the English 
portion of the community attended services we know not, 
but that many of them brought their children to the Ger- 
mans for baptism, and that not a few of them were married 
by the German pastors, these following records abundantly 
show. Prior to 1813 one notices the following names, 
taken at random from these pages :

Patterson Longerson Reeder 

Palmer Magrann Taylor, etc. 

One notices here the inscription of certain names famous 
in the history of Pennsylvania, or of the country at large. 
Here is the name of George Taylor, one of the signers of 
the Declaration; the name of Robert Traill, very promi- 
nent in the early days of the settlement ; the name of 
George Wolf, Governor of Pennsylvania ; the name of 
Andrew Horatio Reeder, the first Governor of Kansas. 
Sometimes these honorable and distinguished men were 
present at the communion ; sometimes they figured either 
as principals or subjects at a baptism ; but it is to their 
everlasting honor that they despised not the Church of 
Jesus Christ, even though its services were conducted in 
an unknown tongue. 

One cannot help the reflection, indeed, as he turns over 
the pages of these old church books, that one of the in- 
cidental blessings of membership in the Christian Church 
is the preservation of the name and the memory of its 
members. Here are the names of many thousands of 
people, long since dead and gone, and the best and most 
certain trace that can, in most instances, be found of them 



1 8 The First Reformed Church of Easton, Pa. 

one must look for in the church books. Connection with 
the Church of Jesus Christ immortalizes. *' The memory 
of the just is blessed, but the name of the wicked shall 
rot." 

It has been the aim of the translator to preserve, as far 
as possible, especially in the earlier years, the old time 
phraseology of the record and the German method of spell- 
ing the Christian or baptismal names. There seems in 
this period to have been a painful paucity of first names, 
the majority of the children receiving but one name apiece, 
usually Johannes if it were a boy, and Anna Maria, 
Catharina, or Elisabetha if a girl ; and often, the longer 
the child's name the shorter his life. Boys and girls ap- 
pear for baptism with remarkable regard for the parity of 
the sexes, and most of them are baptized on Sunday, and 
very soon after they are born, thus showing the high re- 
gard in which the sacrament of baptism was held. 

The attention of the reader is called to these records as 
showing the lamentable death rate prevailing amongst chil- 
dren a hundred years ago. The writer casts his eye over 
two pages of his manuscript, taken at random and counts 
on the one page twelve deaths of children out of a total of 
twenty-six ; and on another page, eighteen out of thirty — 
that is to say, out of thirty deaths eighteen were children. 

This rate is kept up regularly for many years, and con- 
trasts most painfully with the record of deaths made by the 
pastor of the church at the present time. Few children 
die now — many children died then. The present pastor 
attends the funerals of two or three children in a year to 
those of fifteen or twenty adults — a hundred years ago the 
chances were that at least one half the deaths were those 
of children. This fact speaks loudly in praise of modern 
methods of sanitation, acquaintance with the laws of 



The Old Church Record- Books. 19 

hygiene, and the increased number and efficiency of the 
men of the medical profession. In those early days physi- 
cians were few and far between ; people knew very little 
about the laws of health ; warm clothing in the severe 
winter was scarce and dear, and well-warmed houses un- 
known. Verily, it was a struggle for existence, and the 
weakest went to the wall ; the hard conditions of pioneer 
life caused this "Slaughter of the Innocents," and many 
a Rachael " wept for her children and would not be com- 
forted because they were not." 



THE INDIAN TREATY IN THE CHURCH, JAN- 
UARY 30, 1777. 



AS has been said in a former chapter, *' The Forks 
of the Delaware " was a famous place for hold- 
ing treaties with the Indians. Not only during 
the Revolution but long before, in the old Colo- 
nial times, when Pennsylvania was yet a British posses- 
sion and governed by the proprietaries of the English 
Crown, the Indians manifested a steady preference for this 
romantic spot as a most agreeable place in which to 
" light the council fire." Hither on numerous occasions 
the red-men came from great distances to meet the pale- 
faces, their conferences lasting sometimes for several 
weeks. The Indians seem to have been fond of these 
meetings, and to have multiplied reasons for holding them 
as frequently as possible, urging the necessity of such con- 
ferences when the Council or Congress could scarcely see 
the need for them. And no wonder. The red-man knew 
that these treaties furnished him an excellent opportunity of 
testing the liberality of his white brothers who had many 
strange things to give which the Indian dearly loved, and 
which he could obtain nowhere else — glass beads, silver 
jewelry and ornaments, guns and powder and lead, axes, 
blanket and kettles, and other things too numerous to 
mention, to say nothing of the rum which, alas ! the In- 
dian fondly expected at all these meetings. 

Prior to the building of the Reformed Church, during 
a period of not less than forty years, numerous treaties 
were here made, the meetings being always held at 
♦'Vernon's Tavern" at "The Point." At such times 



The Indian Treaty in the Church. 21 

Easton was full of Indians, not less than five hundred be- 
ing present on one occasion, representing nineteen distinct 
and separate tribes. But after the erection of the church 
in 1776 it was thought w^ell to hold the treaty within the 
walls of that building, because it was the largest and most 
commodious edifice in the town. The writer has been at 
some pains to gather all the information possible concern- 
ing this treaty of 1777, having carefully examined the 
early "Journals of Congress," and the " Minutes of the 
Council of Safety," as given in "The Colonial Records," 
and believes that for the first time there is here published 
a connected record of all the documents pertaining to that 
important event in our local history. Thus we read in the 
"Journals of Congress," Vol. III., page 36 : 

' ' Whereas Congress are informed that certain tribes of Indians 
living in the back parts of the country, near the waters of the 
Susquehanna who are within the Confederacy and under the pro- 
tection of The Six Nations, the friends and allies of the United 
States, are, upon motives friendly and peaceable, now on their 
way to Easton in the State of Pennsylvania, and whereas such 
may be the poor and necessitous circumstances of these Indians 
as to demand the attention of Congress — 

" Resolved., That the Committee of Congress at Philadelphia 
deliver to George Walton and George Taylor, Esquires, or either 
of them, looo dollars: who are directed therewith to purchase 
such presents as may be suitable for the said Indians : and that 
one or both of them repair forthwith to Easton, and in the name 
of this Congress inform the said Indians that, although in the 
opinion of Congress, it is altogether improper for them to kindle 
a Council Fire at that place, as they have already done the same 
at Albany where, by their Commissioners, they hold their Coun- 
cils and communicate every matter of importance to their good 
friends. The Six Nations and their allies, of which these tribes 
are a part ; yet, in regard to the good and peaceable conduct of 



22 The First Reformed Church of Easton^ Pa. 

these nations, and in consideration of their wants, which this 
Congress are much inclined to relieve, and also in token of their 
friendship for them, as well as for all other Indians who are at 
peace with these United States, they, the said George Walton 
and George Taylor, Esquires, are directed to deliver these 
presents to them, and that they are to signify at the same time 
to the said Indians that this Congress have an entire confidence 
that the same peaceable and friendly conduct will be observed 
by them which they have hitherto regarded. 

" Ordered^ That the said Messieurs Walton and Taylor be 
furnished a copy of the foregoing resolution for their direction." 

Next in order we read in " The Colonial Records," Vol. 
XL, page 96, in the " Minutes of the Council of Safety" 
as follows : 

"January 20, 1777. Resolved^ That Col. Dean and Col. Bull 
be appointed to attend the Treaty to be held with the Indians at 
Easton, Monday next, on behalf of this Council : when they are 
to advise and concur with the Committee of Assembly and Con- 
gress in all such measures as they shall think proper, to preserve 
peace and harmony with the Indian nations." 

From the same Minutes under date of the day following 
we learn that the following additional action was taken : 

"January 21, 1777. Resolved that Mr Thomas Payne be ap- 
pointed Secretary to the Commissioners for the Indian Treaty 
to be held at Easton on Monday next," 

That the five commissioners so far named might not ap- 
pear at the treaty empty-handed, and well knowing the 
great expectations of the Indians, the Committee of Public 
Safety gave specific directions as to the kind and number 
of presents to be provided for the occasion. For, on page 
108, Vol. XL, Colonial Records, it is stated that 

"An order was sent to Hayman (Haman ?) Levy to make 
up an assortment of articles fit for a Treaty with 70 Indians 



The Indian Treaty in the Church. 23 

(exclusive of women and children). He accordingly pack'd 
up the following Goods, for which a receipt was given by the 
Secretary, 

9,600 White Wampum. 
20,500 Black Wampum. 
30 Moons. 

30 Hair Pipes of Conk Shell. 
6 Pair Arm bands. 
13 Gordiots. 
100 Broaches. 
37 Pair Ear-Bobs. 

All of silver, which with 15 Camp Kettles were this day for- 
warded to Cols. Bull and Deane, Conimissioners on the part of 
this Council at Easton." 

The wampum probably consisted of beads of glass, white 
or black, the white being the wampum proper, the Indians 
making them of the interior parts of shells strung on threads. 
"Wampum was highly esteemed amongst the American 
aborigines, being used as currency amongst them, and 
worn also in necklaces, bracelets, belts, scabbards, etc. 
Three of the dark, or six of the white passed for one Eng- 
lish penny. Wampum was woven into belts of various pat- 
terns, into which dates, treaties and national events were 
' talked.' " 

The white and black beads were used for the purpose 
of making treaty belts. These were often made on the 
spot by the Indian women who were present, being prob- 
ably brought along for this purpose. Thus, at the treaty 
held at Easton in 1756, in the month of July, at which coun- 
cil Teedyuscung, the King of the Delawares, was present, 
we read that Conrad Weiser, the Indian Interpreter, said 
that "The French gave great quantities of wampum 
to their Indians, and on matters of consequence these belts 



24 The First Reformed Church of Easton, Pa. 

were several fathoms long, and very wide. The secretary 
was ordered to bring all the wampum he had into the 
Council, viz., fifteen strings and seven belts; a parcel of 
new black wampum, amounting to seven thousand ; and 
having no new white wampum, nor any proper belt to 
give in return for Teedyuscung's peace belts, a messenger 
was sent to Bethlehem and he returned with five thousand ; 
upon which the Indian women were employed to make a 
belt a fathom long (6 feet) and sixteen beads wide, in the 
center of which was to be the figure of a man, meaning 
the Governor of Pennsylvania, and on each side five other 
figures, meaning the Ten Nations mentioned by Teedyus- 
cung. . . . The new belt not being finished during the 
sessions of the Council, the Governor explained the pro- 
posed figure to the chiefs, and desired the women might 
finish it on rainy days, or resting on their journey, which 
was promised." 

What the "Moons" were, and the " Hair Pipes of Conk 
Shell," and the " Gordiots," the reader can ascertain by 
guessing, or by further inquiry^ as the mood may chance 
to hold him. These gaudy baubles no doubt caught the 
eye and held the admiration of the poor Indians to a de- 
gree unimaginable by us, and contributed largely to the 
importance of the treaty. 

In what way "Messieurs" Walton and Ta^dor and 
Payne reached the scene of the Council we know not, but 
evidently Colonel John Bull, true to his English name and 
moved by his American instincts, lost no time in setting 
forth from Philadelphia for Easton, a journey on horse- 
back of some eighty miles in extent, as we learn by con- 
sulting the " Penna. Archives," 1776-7, page 201, from a 
letter written by this gentleman to the Council from Norri- 
ton in Montgomery County.

Col. John Bull to the Council, 1777. 

Sir: We have left the Council without any instructions and 
Whether we are to have any, or who shall give them. Congress, 
Council of Safety or Assembly, I will not undertake to say, but 
when I waited upon ISIr Robert Morris, he informed me that they 
had wrote to Congress, and that if any answer arrived In time it 
aught to be sent forward to Eastown. I take the liberty of Com- 
municating a few hints which I think aught to be attended to 
unless we are instructed to the Contrary. If we find them well 
disposed, we shall try to cultivate a good understanding with 
them, and Likewise Lay the Ground-work of a Great Treaty 
next Summer, at such time and Place as may Suit them best, 
but I think under our Circumstances Something Bestowed in that 
way to Continue the friendship of the Indians may be of infinite 
advantage, under our present struggle, and at the same time it 
will be Necessary to assure them of our own Sufficiency and 
Strength in Carrying on this war against our Enemies, how farr 
it will be Prudent or Practicable to Explain the Cause thereof I 
have not yet fully Deliberated upon. 

I am. Sir, with Due Respect,

Two days later he reached Easton after a long and tire- 
some two days' journey on horseback, having Col. Dean 
for his traveling companion in all probability, although that 
fact is not mentioned. At once upon his arrival he writes 
the following letter, to keep the Council well informed as 
to the progress of the treaty : 

Sir — We are just arrived at Eastown, where we found about 
the same number of Indians we expected and Tolerably well 
Disposed, though much in want of Every Necessary, one article

to send to the Council, if they are come to hand — if not, send 
the Messenger without them as they are not of so much conse- 
quence. 

Directed to Hon. Thos. Wharton Esqr. 

Pres. of Ye Council of Safety. 

The worthy Colonel, despite his British cognomen, is 
evidently a thorough American patriot, and believes in early 
rising and in losing no time in pressing matters to an issue. 
He is evidently a good Commissioner, and keeps an eye on 
the chief and salient features of the occasion, being more 
concerned for the camp-kettles for the Indians than for 
the medals for himself and his fellow Commissioners. Or, 
were those medals intended for the Indians? Who knows? 
But no matter. Let them go, if need be, but send on by 
all means the fifteen camp-kettles, a very necessary and 
highly valuable present to the poor Indian who, alas ! has 
not the knowledge how to make them. He can bring down 
the deer with his rifle, or the wild turkey with his bow and 
arrow, but how to make a camp-kettle is quite beyond him. 
For that he is dependent on the white man ; he will give a

hundred acres, or a thousand if hard pressed, for one camp- 
kettle, poor son of Nature ! 

Though apparently quite eager for the conference to 
open, the Colonel is perforce compelled to await, as patiently 
as he can, the arrival of the Congressional representatives 
on the Commission, " Messieurs " Taylor and Walton, who 
did not reach Easton until the day following the date of the 
above letter. Whether Payne had accompanied Dean and 
Bull, or traveled in company with Taylor and Walton, we 
have no means of knowing. The following letter gives us 
some information concerning the opening of the Treaty — 
and much we wish it gave us more. 

Easton, Jan. 31 1777 

Sir — The delegates from Congress, Colls. Taylor and Walton 
arrived on Wednesday, ye 29"*, and yesterday, ye 30"^, we opened 
the Treaty. When the Indians Delivered Two Strings, Three 
Belts, and about half their Talk, they having Three belts more 
to deliver this day, the Indians seem to be inclined to act the 
Wise Part with Respect to the present Dispute, if they are to be 
relied on they mean to be Neuter. We have already Learnt their 
good Intentions and Great Expectations in receiving Presents. 
However I think we have full as much with us as will satisfy 
them, we have not a word of news here, more Soldiers Return- 
ing from than are going to the Camp, I hope that is not the case 
in Philadelphia. I am, Sir, 

With Comp' to my Brethren,

John Bull.

Pres. Council of Safety. 

From " The History of Northampton County," by I. D. 
Rupp (1S45), we learn that Colonels Lawry and Cunning- 
ham were also present at this Treaty, having been duly 
appointed by the Assembly of the State of Pennsylvania.

From the same source we also learn that the following 
Indian chiefs were present. Let their names be pre- 
served ! 

Kayugas — Taasquah, or King Charles. 

Senecas — Tawanah, or The Big Tree. 

Munsies — Mytakawha, or Walking on Foot ; Kaknah,

The journals of Congress show that on June 13, 1777, 
the Auditor General reported due Abraham Berlin, chair-

The Indian Treaty in the Church. 29 

No one can possibly more regret than the writer the 
unfortunate lack of any more specific information concern- 
ing this treaty. A careful search of all the published rec- 
ords fails to yield anything further. A respectful request 
to the Librarian of Congress at Washington elicits only 
the information that "we have not been able to find any 
record of the proceedings of the conference with the Indians 
at Easton, Penna., in 1777." Conway, in his life of 
Thomas Paine, says that Paine was appointed by the 
Council of Safety in Philadelphia Secretary to the Com- 
mission sent by Congress to treat with the Indians at 
Easton. The Commissioners, with a thousand dollars' 
worth of presents, met the Indian chiefs in the German 
Reformed Church (built 1776) and, as they reported to 
Congress, ' after shaking hands, drinking rum, while the 
organ played, we proceeded to business.' The report was 
no doubt written by Paine, who for his services was paid 
300 pounds by the Pennsylvania Assembly. ... I have 
written to the Commissioner of Indian Affairs, asking if 
the records are to be found in the Archives of that Depart- 
ment. When he replies I will transmit the information to 
you." All of which is properly signed by the Chief Bibliog- 
rapher of the Congressional Library — but the Commis- 
sioner of Indian Affairs has not yet been heard from, and 
quite likely will not be. The Commission must evidently 
have made a report to Congress, and that report must be 
somewhere — but where? The report in question must 
evidently be the authority for the statement so frequently 
made, in '' Conway's Life of Thomas Paine," in the 
" History of the Lehigh Valley," and in the following 
sketch of the Reformed Church of Easton written by Dr. 
John Beck, that " the Commissioners met the Indians in 
the German Reformed Church of Easton, and after shak- 



30 The First Reformed Church of Easton, Pa. 

ing hands and drinking rum together, during which time 
the organ was played, they proceeded to business." 

In the absence of any further information one is left to 
imagine the scene — the high commissioners of Congress 
in their best new Continental uniforms taking their places 
in front of the pulpit (which was then on the east side of 
the church), and the seventy Indians arrayed in their 
feathers and war-paint slowly filing in and bestowing 
themselves in the aisles or pews, or where best they might. 
The solemn tones of the organ are heard, the handshak- 
ing begins, the rum is passed round, and the treaty duly 
opened. Through an interpreter sworn to interpret truly, 
the Commissioners make an address, conveying the good 
will of Congress as expressed in the generous donation of 
gifts adroitly displayed on the chancel floor, demanding 
in return the support of the Indian tribes, or at least their 
neutrality, in the struggle in which they, the said Congress 
and people of the United States, are engaged with their 
enemies. The speaker reminds the Indians in the usual 
manner : 

" Brothers — You have been faithful in your leagues with us : 
your hearts have been clean, and you have preserved our Great 
Chain of Friendship and Brotherhood from spots or rust, or if 
there were any, you have been careful to wipe them away. 
Your leagues with our fathers are in writing on record, that our 
Children and our Children's Children may have them in everlast- 
ing remembrance. And we know that you preserve the mem- 
ory of these things amongst you by telling them to your Children 
and they again to the next generation, so that they remain 
stamped on your minds never to be forgot, while the creeks and 
rivers run, and while the Sun, Moon and Stars endure. 

" Brothers — You know well how our enemies, once our 
friends and brothers, but now our friends and brothers no more, 



The Indian Treaty in the Church. 31 

for their friendship was in the mouth and not in the heart, have 
tried to take away our lands f I'om us which our fathers purchased 
of your fathers many moons ago, and have sent armies across 
the Great Waters to make us their slaves. With our brave 
soldiers we will fight them, and be free, doing as you do vi'hen 
vour enemies come upon you to take away your lands and drive 
you from your homes. They shall be beaten off, and driven out 
of our Country, and there shall be hereibut one great, strong and 
powerful Nation of white men, from the rising to the setting 
Sun, the friends and protectors of our brothers, the Indians. 
We wish you to speak with your people at home to make a new 
League and Chain of Brotherhood with our people, and that 
every Link in the Chain be kept bright and clean : and that if you 
wish not to fight for us against our enemies, you remain at home 
and sit still and look on, for why should your blood be shed in this 
quarrel, and be in peace on your own lands, until we have driven 
our enemies away, as we will surely do, and when we have 
finished this friendly Treaty with you, we have a present for 
you, from the Congress and people of The United States, which 
you shall carry with you home, and show to your friends, as a 
pledge of our good-will and brotherhood, and in token of the 
enduring Chain of Friendship between us and you." 

Saying which the speaker sat down, and the Indians 
made a peculiar sound of approval beyond our power here 
to reproduce ; after which Taasquah, or King Charles, 
one of the great chiefs of the Kayugas, arose, and, with 
the assistance of other Indians of lesser note, laid down three 
bundles of dressed deer skins, and presented two strings of 
wampum and three belts, saying : 

"That their friends and brothers, coming from the great 
Council with kind hearts and good words, had spoken well : 
that they were highly pleased that they had been so kindly re- 
ceived, and that they were very willing and desirous that there 
may be more frequent opportunities of conferring and discussing 



32 The First Reformed Church of Easton^ Pa. 

with their brethren, so that the Chain may be kept bright and 
without rust or spot, and that only good may be in the heart. 
Also, that they well understood that the Great King beyond the 
water had not treated his children in this land well, and that this 
is the reason for the present war, in which they will not engage 
one way or tlie other, until they have taken counsel of their 
brethren at Albany, when the great Council-Fire is again lighted, 
which will be soon, and that meanwhile they will be at peace 
with the Congress and people of the United States : in token and 
pledge of which peaceful sentiments they present these strings 
and belts of wampum." 

Whereupon the Indians all gave their peculiar and inde- 
scribable sound of assent and ratification which nothing 
short of a phonograph could ever hope to reproduce. 

The translation and interpretation of these addresses into 
the language of the different tribes represented occupied 
so much time that the better part of the day was consumed 
in the process, and in the accompanying ceremonies ; so 
that the Council adjourned to meet the next day; when 
the treaty was concluded, much after the same fashion, 
the conclusion thereof being accompanied by the distri- 
bution of the gifts provided, and above enumerated, to the 
great delight of the Indians, in whose eyes ornaments of 
silver had an especial value. Warm clothing should have 
been more acceptable to them at that bitter season of the 
year, and in view of the long journey of more than three 
hundred miles before them on their way home to the lakes 
of western New York, for the snow was deep on the 
ground and the cold intense, even in Easton, and much 
more so amongst the Pocono mountains beyond the Blue 
Ridge which they must cross. One can only wonder how 
or where they were lodged during their stay in the town. 
In all probability they erected their wigwams at the foot of 



The Indian Treaty in the Church. 33 

Mount Jefferson, or under the lee of some of the other 
mighty hills of the " Forks of the Delaware" which would 
shield them against the cold blasts of the north wind, and 
the abundant forests on the sides of these hills furnished 
ample fuel for the great fires of their camp. The people 
of the town, numbering at that time about four or five 
hundred souls, breathed more easily after the excitement 
of this great gathering, when they saw the camp break up, 
and the Indians, single file and in long line, taking their 
way over the Bushkill and up Chestnut Hill, making for the 
Wind Gap in the Blue Mountains and the far-away settle- 
ments on the Susquehanna, or in the Genesee country, 
whence they had come. No doubt the poor squaws carried 
the camp-kettles, so precious in the eyes of these poor 
children of nature, and no doubt each camp-kettle was 
well loaded before it was strapped on the back ; but happy 
indeed was each dark-skinned daughter of the forest if the 
cruel burden on the back was counter-balanced by the 
shining presence of a silver band about the arm or a pair 
of glittering " ear-bobs" in the ears — the marvellous gift 
of the pale-faced friend and brother. 

The chief object of this treaty, viz., To detach the 
powerful confederacy of the Six Nations from the British, 
or at least to secure their neutrality, does not seem to have 
been secured; for in the following year, on July 3, 1778, 
the great and awful massacre at Wyoming occurred. 




THE ORGANIZATION OF THE CONGREGA- 
TION, AND THE BUILDING OF THE 
CHURCH. 

In the effort to account for the origin of the Re- 
formed Church in Easton, the writer cannot do 
the subject greater justice than by here inserting 
the following '■'■Historical sketch of the origin 
and growth of the Third Street Reformed Congregation, 
and of the founding of its Church building, -prepared and 
read at its Centennial Celebration in the Church, July /j., 
j8y6. — This admirable sketch was prepared by the late 
Rev. Dr. John Beck, at that time the pastor of the congre- 
gation, and is remarkable alike for simplicity of style and 
lucid statement of facts. 

AN HISTORICAL, SKETCH OF THE ORIGIN AND GROWTH OF 

THE THIRD STREET REFORMED CONGREGATION, AND 

OF THE FOUNDING OF ITS CHURCH BUILDING, 

PREPARED AND READ AT ITS CENTENNIAL 

CELEBRATION, IN THE CHURCH, 

JULY 4TH, 1876. 

BY REV. JOHN BECK, D.D., PASTOR. 



The ancient Jews were required by divine command to 
celebrate a year of jubilee, at the expiration of every fifty 
years of their history. God designed thereby to impress 
upon their minds the great truth that their existence as a 
nation, their time, their property, and all the blessings and 
events of providence, were from His hand and under His

omnipotent control. This divine command appointing this 
great festival seems to have fully harmonized with a senti- 
ment which existed in the hearts of the people, and no 
one of the many festivals observed by the Jews was cele- 
brated with more spirit and display than characterized the 
observance of the year of jubilee. The return of the 
year was not only hailed throughout the land with the 
sound of trumpets, which echoed and reechoed from 
every hill and valle}', throughout the whole year, but great 
gladness of heart and general manifestation of joy and 
rejoicing marked the conduct of the people. 

Twice the period of time embraced in a Jewish jubilee 
anniversary festival has passed in our national histor}'. 
One hundred years ago to-day the foundations of our ex- 
istence as a nation w^ere laid broad and deep in the prin- 
ciples of liberty, justice and equality, by the Declaration 
of Independence ; and we, as a nation, are this year cele- 
brating our centennial anniversary — our centennial jubilee. 
By a happy coincidence, this year is also the centennial 
year of the founding of this church building in which we 
are now assembled. In view of this fact, and for other 
reasons, it was thought meet and right, by the consistory 
of this congregation, to anticipate by several months the 
real date of the founding of this church, and to combine 
the centennial celebration both of the founding of this 
church and the founding of our national government on 
this day, and to make the services both religious and patri- 
otic in their character. 

The patriotic part of the services has been committed to 
hands fully competent to perform it in a manner worthy of 
the day and of the occasion. The especial duty assigned 
to me is to present an historical sketch of the origin and 
growth of this congregation and of the founding of this 



36 The First Reformed Church of Easton^ Pa. 

church, which I now, without further preface, proceed to 
discharge. 

Historians tell us that the beginnings of the history of 
all tribes and nations is enshrouded in more or less mist 
and obscurity. Whether this is true, as a general fact, I 
am not competent to affirm, but I can testify, after much 
labor and research, that the beginning of the history of 
this Reformed tribe of Israel in Easton is enveloped in 
mist and obscurity so dense that it is utterly impossible to 
discover it. It most certainly had a beginning, or it would 
not now be existing ; but when and how this beginning 
took place no annals nor records tell, and we can only trace 
it faintly and approximately by inference and conjecture. 

Immigration from Germany, whence came originally by 
far the largest portion of the fathers and founders of the 
(German) Reformed Church in the United States, began to 
flow into the province of Pennsylvania as early as 1681. 
The main stream of this immigration, however, seems to 
have begun to flow about the year 1720, and was com- 
posed chiefly of families from the Palatinate, a beautiful 
and fertile country on the Rhine. These immigrants were 
chiefly fugitives from political tyranny and religious perse- 
cution in their native land, and came hither, not onl}'^ to 
better their temporal condition, but mainly to find a home 
and a place — a sanctuary and a refuge — in this new 
country, where they might worship God according to the 
faith and customs of their fathers, without suffering perse- 
cution and martyrdom either from King or Pope. 

Many of these early German immigrants of the Reformed 
Church found a new home for themselves in what was 
Bucks County, and afterwards Northampton County, 
which at that time not only included what is now called 
Northampton County, but also what is now Lehigh, Car- 



The Organization of tlie Congregation. 37 

bon, Monroe, Pike, Wayne, and Susquehanna, and parts 
of Wyoming, Luzerne, Schuylkill, Bradford and Colum- 
bia. 

From 1725 to 1740 there was another great influx of 
Germans of various religious opinions, more than 1,000 
families of which settled in Northampton County. In 1752 
the population of the county numbered between 5,000 and 
6,000 persons, not including the Indians, who were nu- 
merous, and of these 5,000 or 6,000 inhabitants 800 are 
reported as inhabiting the " Forks of the Delaware," which 
included what is now Easton, and several of the surround- 
ing townships ; Easton proper containing at this time but 
eleven families — about 40 men, women and children. In 
1763 it contained a population numbering about 250, the 
most of whom are reported to have been Germans, of 
the Reformed or Lutheran confessions. 

These Germans, we have said, were immigrants for 
conscience' sake. They fled from home and country for the 
sake of their religion. Many of them are said to have been 
" truly pious, and though not able to bring their ministers, 
brought with them their catechisms, hymn-books, and other 
devotional books, and, in some cases, also pious school- 
masters." This being the religious character of these first 
German settlers of Easton, it is not surprising to find a 
movement inaugurated here so early as 1755 to raise money 
by subscription to erect a building to be used as a school- 
house, and also "to be used occasionally as a church for 
any Protestant minister." This movement was success- 
ful, and in 1755 a log building was erected on the north- 
east corner of what is now Church and Sitgreaves streets, 
as I have learned from reliable authority, and was used 
both for school and church purposes. Here we have, then, 
so far as I have been able to discover after much research, 



38 The First Reformed Church 0/ East on ^ Pa. 

the first building erected in Easton for church uses ; and 
there is no doubt in my mind that in this log building, 
erected in 1755, our German Reformed forefathers first 
worshipped God after the faith and order of the (German) 
Reformed Church, and I have no more doubt that the 
worship was conducted, not by a minister, but either by 
some pious schoolmaster or other layman. In these early 
years ministers of any denomination were very few in 
number in the province of Pennsylvania. Consequently 
pious members of our church were compelled to depend 
upon themselves for religious edification, and rather than 
forego all religious services, they accepted these from the 
schoolmasters, who, by singing, reading, prayers and ser- 
mons, made up for the people as best they could the want 
of regular church ministrations. I make the statement that 
members of the German Reformed Church in Easton in 
these early days, between 1740 and 1760, had their 
religious and church wants provided for in this way ; first, 
because it is legitimate to infer from their religious char- 
acter and their religious training in the fatherland, and 
especially from the fact that most of them were exiles for 
conscience' sake, that they would make the best provision 
possible to supply their religious and church wants ; and 
secondly, as I have not been able to find, in all the records 
and histories which I have been able to consult, that a 
regular Reformed minister of the gospel was located in 
Easton before 1760, it is equally legitimate to infer that 
the worship of the congregation was conducted by some 
pious schoolmaster or other layman, especially as this was 
done at this early day at other places. Moreover, I think 
the records and circumstances will warrant us to speak of 
an organized congregation as existing between the years 
1745 and 1750. There is no record anywhere of the place 



The Organization of the Congregation. 39 

and date of the organization of a congregation ; but, never- 
theless, we have found several records, and a few well- 
authenticated facts, which point to this period as that 
during which the heretofore scattered members of the 
German Reformed Church of Easton and vicinity were 
organized into a church. 

1. Rev. Michael Schlatter was sent by the Synod of 
Holland, in 1746, to this country for the purpose of visit- 
ing and gathering together the scattered members of our 
church, to organize congregations, and to be over them as 
a superintendent or bishop. He spent the years from 1747 
to 1750 in serving the Race Street Reformed congregation, 
in Philadelphia, and in visiting the congregations in the 
interior of the State, and in Maryland and Virginia, to ac- 
quaint himself with their numbers and conditions, and to 
give them such services and aid as was in his power. In 
1750 he was appointed by the Synod to visit Europe, espe- 
cially Holland, Switzerland and the Palatinate, for the 
purpose of presenting to the Reformed people of those 
countries the sad state of the religious destitution existing 
among their brethren in this country and to solicit aid in 
their behalf. Having arrived in Holland, he drew up and 
published an appeal, in which, among other things, he 
mentions the congregations in Pennsylvania which he had 
visited during the years 1747 and 1750. Among these is 
mentioned the congregation at the Forks of the Delaware, 
by which name Easton was known at that time. Now, if 
Schlatter visited Easton some time between 1747 and 1750* 
he either found a congregation already organized, or if 
not, he very probably organized one then, for to do such 
work was one of the objects held in view by him in all his 
missionary journeys. 

2. Another proof that this congregation was organized 



40 The First Reformed Church of East on ^ Pa. 

at some time between 1745 and 1750 is furnished by this 
old German bible here lying before us. On the fly leaf 
of this venerable book is inscribed this record in German 
and Latin, which we translate into English as follows : 
*'Biblia Sacra, or the Holy Bible, presented by Mr. 
Michael Schlatter, V. D. M. [Minister of the Word of 
God], and Inspector of the Liberties at Philadelphia, to 
Reformed Church and Congregation at I[E]aston, with the 
earnest request that the Elders and Deacons, and their 
successors, be properly concerned, that this Bible continue 
to be used by the Church at its public divine worship. 
Glory to God alone in the Highest. Glory alone to God." 
From this inscription it appears, first, that Rev. Michael 
Schlatter presented this Bible to this congregation when 
he was pastor of the church in Philadelphia ; secondly, 
that when he presented it there was existing a congrega- 
tion with elders and deacons. 

Now it is know^n, from the life of Schlatter, that he ceased 
to be pastor of the congregation in Philadelphia in 1755, 
consequently he must have presented this bible in that year 
or at an earlier date, probably not long after his return 
from Europe, which occurred in 1752. These facts prove, 
we think, that this congregation was organized at some 
date between 1745 and 1750, and it is probable that its or- 
ganization was effected by Schlatter himself — this bible 
being a gift in remembrance of that fact. 

To pass now to the examination of what may be con- 
sidered more certain data and facts of history as these are 
presented in the preserved records of the congregation, we 
would remark that the earliest of these records are not only 
without any proper authentication, but are very incomplete 
and disconnected. 

The record bearing the oldest date is that of a baptism.

and is as follows : " Anno 1760, September 28th, was born 
a son, and was baptised November 5th. He received the 
name of Ludwig. His sponsors were Philip Gress and 
Anna Margaret, his wife. His parents were Ludwig 
Knauss and Elizabeth his wife." But it must be remarked 
in regard to this record, that it stands isolated and alone in 
the book, and that it is evidently in the handwriting of Rev. 
John William Ingold, who was not pastor of the congrega- 
tion until 1775. He may, perhaps, have learned of this 
baptism and recorded it some years after it took place. A 
similar isolated and detached record, or rather memoran- 
dum, is to the effect that the Coetus, or Synod, met in 
Easton in 1768. The imperfect character of these early 
records is evident also from this fact, that the name of the 
first regular pastor of the congregation is mentioned only 
incidentally in them, and that we must go to Dr. Harbaugh's 
** Lives of the Fathers of the Reformed Church " to learn 
more about him and his connection with the congregation. 

The first regular pastor was Rev. Dr. Casper Deitrich 
Weyberg, and who, Dr. Harbaugh says, took charge of 
the congregation at Easton in the early part of the year 
1763. 

The church records make only incidental allusion to 
him in this way : There are nine baptisms recorded as 
having taken place in 1763. The person who makes this 
record — evidentl}'- not Dr. Weyberg himself, most prob- 
ably Rev. Frederick L. Henop, as the handwriting shows 
— says that these names were left behind by Dr. Weyberg 
on slips of paper ; but whether they are the names of the 
parents, the sponsors, or the children who were baptized, 
the writer was not able to tell. 

At this time, 1763, Easton, in connection with Green- 
wich, N. J., Dryland and Plainfield, constituted a pastoral 



42 The First Reformed Church of Easton, Pa. 

charge. These congregations seem to have been served 
in an irregular way before this time by some self-ap- 
pointed preachers. But in 1763, as said, Rev. Dr. Wey- 
berg became the first regular pastor of the charge, with 
the approval of Synod. The congregation in Easton had 
at this time no place of worship. " For want of more 
suitable accommodations, it is said, he preached in the 
then newly erected court house, and in the country around, 
in barns, or wherever room could be found to shelter the 
assembly." He was, however, pastor of the congregation 
only for six months, when he was called to Philadelphia. 
After the departure of Dr. Weyberg there followed a 
vacancy, which continued until the beginning of 1766, 
when Rev. Frederick L. Henop became pastor of the 
congregation. We cannot pass Dr. Weyberg, though his 
ministry in Easton was very brief, without mentioning an 
incident which occurred during his ministry in Philadel- 
phia, and which illustrates his character as a patriot as well 
as a minister of the Gospel: "He took a warm interest 
in the war of the Revolution. He had quite a fancy for 
mingling, in some way or other, in the warlike struggles 
of the times. He stood out prominently as a patriot, and is 
said to have acted for a time in the capacity of chaplain. 
At the time when the British held possession of Philadel- 
phia he preached to the Hessians, who thronged to hear 
him in great crowds. He boldly asserted the justice of the 
American cause, and bore down with such energy upon 
the wickedness of the oppressors that the British began to 
feel the effects of his fearless appeals in the daily desertions 
of their Hessian mercenaries. In order to put a stop to his 
preaching they threatened his life, and threw him into 
prison, from which, however, he was soon liberated. It 
is confidently affirmed that the Hessians would, in all 



The 07'ganization of the Congregation. 43 

probability, to a man have left the British service if the 
old father had not been silenced." 

He seems to have commenced the records of baptisms 
performed by him February 23, 1766, and continued it until 
October 8, 1769 — a period of about three years and eight 
months. Then he resigned and removed to Frederick, 
Maryland. The record of his baptisms is the only thing that 
remains to tell that he was pastor of the congregation, and 
we would not even be certain of that fact were it not for 
the very brief notice of him in Harbaugh's " Lives of the 
Fathers, etc." Rev. Henop was succeeded, in 1769, by 
Rev. Pithan, of whom it is said that he was conditionally 
received into Coetus, or Synod, and located on trial in 
Easton, Dryland, Plainfield and Greenwich. At the next 
meeting of the Synod, in 1770, complaints were made 
against him of drunkenness ; but on his confessing his 
faults and promising to do better, he was permitted to 
preach in his charge a while longer. He did not, how- 
ever, hold by his promise long, and in 1771 he, with some 
difficulty, was compelled to resign and remove. 

Thus again in 1771 the congregation became vacant and 
remained so until 1776. 

It was during this vacancy that the congregation, in 
union with St. John's Lutheran Congregation, began to 
take measures for the erection of a church. 

From Rev. Henop's hand we have the first record of the 
existence of a consistory and the names thereof. It bears 
the date of 1768, and states that the elders were Ludwig 
Knauss and Philip Odenwelder ; deacons, John Gettert 
and Henry Schneider. This consistory record is then in- 
terrupted and is not resumed until January 5, 1777, and is 
then continued annually until 1795, when a chasm occurs 
which extends to 1808. Among the names of members of 



44 The First Reformed Church of Easton^ Pa. 

the consistoiy from 1777 to 1795 we find the following: 
Elders — Philip Achenbach, John Simon, John Deichman, 
George Ernst Becker, Jacob Shumaker, Michael Gress, 
John Nicholas Troxel, John Best, Peter Lattig, Jacob 
Scheib and Michael Odenwelder ; Deacons — Nicholas 
Kemmerer, Michael Fraes, John Young, Leonhard Walsch, 
Henry Hahn, Henry Winter, Christian Butz, Frederick 
Barthold, Christopher Meixel and Jacob Keller. 

As we have seen, the Reformed congregation began to 
worship in the then newly erected court house in 1763. 
We have not been able to learn from any records or history 
that it worshipped in any other place until this building 
was erected. St. John's Lutheran congregation had 
worshipped from 1763 in the second story of a stone build- 
ing on South Third street. But these congregations now 
felt the need of having a more permanent and suitable 
place of worship, and they joined together to secure this 
for themselves. 

Honorable John Penn, of Stoke Pogeis, in the County 
of Bucks, in the Kingdom of Great Britain, and Honor- 
able Richard Penn, of Queen Ann Street West, in the 
Parish of St. Mary Le Bone, in the County of Middlesex, 
in the Kingdom of Great Britain, who were descendants 
and heirs of William Penn, and proprietaries of Pennsyl- 
vania, donated to the two congregations (for the nominal 
sum of ten dollars, lawful money of the United States), 
three parcels of ground, one of which was that on which 
this building now stands. This grant was confirmed and 
conveyed by deed November 27, 1800, to Peter Snyder, 
Nicholas Troxell and Nicholas Kern, Trustees for the 
German Reformed Congregation, and Jacob Weygand, 
William Roup and Conrad Bittenbender, Trustees for 
German Lutheran Congregation, of Easton, for the nomi-

nal sum of ten dollars, lawful money of the United 
States. 

The joint congregations having thus come into posses- 
sion of an eligible location, proceeded to build the church 
within the original walls of which we are now assembled. 
The cornerstone was laid June 8, 1775, and the church 
was consecrated to the service of the Triune God, Novem- 
ber 17, 1776. The internal arrangement and appearance 
was originally somewhat different from what they are at 
present. Of the church consecrated in 1776 only these 
four walls remain — the vestibule and steeple being addi- 
tions, w^hich were made in 1832-3. The internal arrange- 
ment was somewhat as follows, as I have been able to 
gather it from persons still living who frequently wor- 
shipped in it : The entrance to the church was by three 
doors, one of which was on Church street, behind the 
present pulpit, and the two others on Third street. The 
pews were arranged lengthwise on the Third street side, 
facing east; on the north side facing south, and on the 
south side facing north, cut by aisles running north and 
south, east and west. The galleries ran along the north, 
south and west sides of the church, to which access was 
had by two stairways, the one ascending from the south- 
west corner and the other from the northwest corner of the 
building. The organ was on the west side gallery, and 
was built in 1775 by Dannaker. The pulpit was on the 
east side of the building, and was of the wine-glass or 
goblet style, having a large sounding board over it. 
Beneath the pulpit was an altar (the one before us here 
to-da}'), which was surrounded by a railing. The ceiling 
was dome shape in form, was ornamented wnth figures in 
oil, and still exists above the present ceiling. The pews 
were of the high-backed, narrow-seated style, not made 



46 The First RefortJied Church of JSaston, Pa. 

either to lounge or sleep in, but to keep their occupants 
upright and awake as worshippers always ought to be. 

Let us try to picture to ourselves a service held in those 
early days. We will suppose the congregation assembled. 
The first thing that strikes our view, as we look over it, is 
the fact that the sexes are separated from each other, the 
women occupying the pews on the main floor of the build- 
ing, surrounded on the north and south sides by a small 
fringe of men, for protection rather than ornament, per- 
haps. On each side of the pulpit was a long pew, running 
parallel with the wall, in one of which sat the venerable 
elders, and in the other the deacons of the congregation. 

Another thing that strikes our view, is the plain, the very 
plain and simple dress of the worshippers. We see no 
silks, and broadcloths, no gay ribbons or flowers, for those 
were the days of the Revolution and of continental money. 
Instead, the men for the most part are clad in plain home- 
spun and linsey wolsey, some even being in their shirt 
sleeves, if the weather is warm ; the women clothed in larcje 
part with the same plain material — the workmanship of 
their own looms and hands — a few, it may be, in calico, 
or other equally inexpensive material. Their bonnets were 
made of black silk or gingham and pasteboard, and of a 
shape so as to cover the face, and so protect it not only 
from the hot sun and rude wind, but also from the ruder 
gaze of impertinent curiosity — a style of female headgear 
very unlike that prevalent at the present day, which seems 
to be made to adorn the back of the head and expose, not 
protect, the face or the modesty of the wearer. 

On the galleries are the young men and maidens, who 
are kept in becoming order by the vigilant sexton, who 
makes his presence as often felt and heard, by sharp raps, 
as seen, by the eye. 



The Organization of the Congregation. 47 

While the organist is playing a solemn voluntary, the 
minister enters. He proceeds with slow step to the chancel, 
when, amid deep silence, he offers a silent prayer, which 
also every devout worshipper offers when they entered 
their pew. A solemn awe and reverence seems to pervade 
the whole audience, as if the divine presence was felt by 
all, as the minister gives out the first hymn, which, under 
the leadership of the organist and chorister, is sung, not 
by the choir, but by the whole congregation, who sing 
their psalms, and hymns, and spiritual songs with spirit 
and with understanding. Then follows the reading of the 
Holy Scriptures, which is listened to as if it were, as it 
truly is, the Word of God, and when, at the close of this, 
the minister thanks God for his Holy Word, and says, 
"let us pray," the whole congregation rises, and, with 
folded hands and bowed heads, enters, as it were, with the 
minister, into the holy place where God hears and answers 
prayer. After prayer, another hymn is sung with equal 
spirit, during which the minister leaves the altar and 
ascends the pulpit. When he rises to preach all eyes are 
fixed eagerly upon him, as upon one whom they regard as 
being more than an ordinary man, as being indeed an em- 
bassador of Christ and steward of the mystery, who in 
Christ's stead was beseeching them to become reconciled 
to God. After the sermon follow^s a short prayer, invok- 
ing the blessing of God upon His Word, another hymn, 
with doxology and benediction, then a few moments more 
of silent prayer, and while the organ sounds forth a volun- 
tary in full harmony wdth the preceding service, the con- 
gregation departs, carrying with it the solemn, strengthen- 
ing feeling that it has been in the house of God, at the 
gates of heaven. 

But to return to our history. Diligent research has 



48 The First Reformed Church of Easton, Pa. 

failed to give us the names of the architect of the building, 
the building committee of the Reformed Congregation, or 
the cost of the building. From still living witnesses we 
have learned that the mason work was done by Mr. Philip 
Meixell, grandfather of the late Charles Meixell, Esq. 
It is said that he received his pay for his work in conti- 
nental money/ which when he came to use it several years 
after, had depreciated so much in value that for the whole 
of it he was only able to buy a bag of wheat or ten bushels 
of potatoes. 

From the original size, materials and general internal 
arrangements and appointments of the building, we are war- 
ranted to infer that it must have cost what was then a large 
amount of money; and when we consider the then social 
state of the community, the limited pecuniary means of 
the wealthiest, the uncertain political state of the countr}', 
the building was not only a worthy monument of the piety 
and liberality of the fathers who built it, but also a speak- 
ing witness of their courage and faith. 

' " During the summer of 17S0 this wretched ' Continental ' currency 
fell into contempt. As Washington said — ' It took a wagon-load of 
money to buy a wagon-load of provisions.' At the end of the year 1778, 
the paper dollar was worth sixteen cents in the northern states, and 
twelve cents in the south. Early in 1780 its value had fallen to two 
cents, and before the end of the year it took ten paper dollars to make a 
cent. In October Indian corn sold wholesale in Boston for $150 a 
bushel, butter was $12 a pound, tea $90, sugar $10, beef $8, coffee $12, and 
a barrel of flour cost $1,575. Samuel Adams paid $2,000 for a hat, and a 
suit of clothes. The money soon ceased to circulate, debts could not be 
collected and there was a general prostration of credit. To say that a 
thing was ' not worth a Continental' became the strongest possible ex- 
pression of contempt.' We need not wonder that the good and worthy 
man, who laid the foundations of our chuch building, received only ten 
bushels of potatoes or wheat as others say, for his work. But we are sure 
that what he lacked in Continental money was somehow made up to him 
in a better currency." 



The Organization of the Congregation. 49 

The vacancy that occurred in the pastorate of the con- 
gregation by the removal of Rev. Pithan, in 1771, was not 
supplied until 1776. Some time during the first half of this 
year (probably June or July), Rev. William Ingold became 
pastor, and though the records are silent on the point, yet 
being pastor at the time, it is reasonable to conclude that 
he took part in the consecration of the church, November 
17, 1776, in connection with Rev. Christian Striet, who 
was then pastor of St. John's Lutheran congregation, Rev. 
Schwarbach, of the Lutheran Church, also assisting. His 
first baptismal record bears the date of August 25, 1776, 
and he continues this record uninterruptedly and carefully 
to February 14, 1786. From these records of baptism it 
is reasonable to infer that he was pastor of the congre- 
gation for a continued period of about ten years. Dr. 
Harbaugh, however, in his " Lives of the Fathers of the 
Reformed Church," Vol. IL, p. 399, presents a somewhat 
different account of his connection with this congregation. 
He says that "Rev. Ingold came to Easton in 1776, but 
failing to give satisfaction and win the confidence of the 
congregation ; and, moreover, the congregation being small 
and notable to support him, he remained but a short time. 
Afterwards [he does not say how long afterwards] he 
returned to Easton, where he labored for nearly ten 
years (with poor success)." If this statement is correct 
(and there is the record of a baptism bearing the date of 
April 30, 1775, evidently in Ingold's handwriting), then 
he must^have been here the first time in 1775, but only 
for a short time, and afterwards returned in 1776 and 
remained here until 1786. He makes one record of 
special interest, which we here translate from the German, 
viz., "Easton, November 23, 1776, the following young 
persons were confirmed, in the presence of the congre-

gation, on the Saturday after the Sunday on which the 
church was consecrated : Ludwig Knauss, aged 15 years ; 
Frederick Gebhart, 16 years ; Peter Riebel, 14 years ; 
Frederick Hess, 16 years ; John Jacob Everig, 16 years ; 
Frederick Lerch, of Saucon, 17 years; Jacob Oberle, of 
Sajucon, 17 years ; Elizabeth Denier, 15 years ; Magdalene 
Beker, 16 years; Susannah Kachline, 15 years ; Elizabeth 
Drumheller, 16 years; Christina Meixell, 17 years; 
Rosina Odenwelder, 15 years ; Margaret Best, 16 years ; 
Christina Busch, 15 years; Elizabeth Odenwelder, 13 
years ; Elizabeth Hess (married), 18 years ; Anna Hess, 
16 years; Elizabeth Ewing, 17 years; Susannah Laer, 17 
Elizabeth Laer, 16 years ; Magdalene Meixel, 16 years ; 
Elizabeth Gress, 16 years ; Anna Margaret Ewing, 14 
years; Anna Maria Lerch, of Saucon, 15 years, and 
Susan Elizabeth Laubach, of Saucon, 16 years — alto- 
gether 26." Some of these names are still borne by pres- 
ent members of this congregation. 

The congregation was not permitted to worship contin- 
uously and uninterruptedly on alternate Sundays in this 
building after it was consecrated and during the pastorate 
of Rev. Ingold. On the 20th of January, 1777, Hons. 
George Taylor and George Walton, Commissioners ap- 
pointed by Congress to be present and preside at the In- 
dian treaty to be holden in Easton, met the Indians in this 
church, and, according to the report which they made to 
Congress, " after the shaking of hands and drinking of 
rum, during which time the organ was played, they pro- 
ceeded to business." 

Again, during the war of the Revolution, from 1776 to 
1780, the church, which was then one of the two largest 
buildings in Easton — the court house being the other — 
was frequently used as a hospital and was often crowded 



The Organization of the Congregation. 51 

with sick and wounded soldiers, during which time the 
congregation was compelled to worship elsewhere, if at 
all. The congregation in connection with St. John's 
Lutheran congregation, in these early days also labored 
under another oppressive burden in the shape of a church 
debt of four hundred pounds — an ecclesiastical evil which 
still afflicts churches. In 1794 the Trustees of the two 
congregations petitioned the Legislature to permit Mr. 
Hellick to collect the amount of the debt throughout the 
State by subscription, which was granted, and we hope he 
succeeded in soon collecting the money. 

Rev. Ingold was succeeded, after an interval of but a 
few months, by Rev. Lebrecht Frederick Hermann, D.D., 
who became pastor of the congregation, in connection with 
the congregations at Plainfield, Dryland and Greenwich, 
in the fall of 1786. Dr. Hermann was a man of ability 
and culture, having studied six years in the celebrated 
school connected with the Orphans' Home at Halle, in Ger- 
many, and then took a course of three years in theology 
in the university of that city. The labors of the charge 
were too severe for his strength, and, after serving the 
congregations only about four years, he resigned October, 
1790, giving as a reason for doing so that he feared the 
consequences upon his health of the excessive labors which 
the charge devolved upon him. 

It was during the ministry of Dr. Hermann that the first 
recorded donation for charitable purposes was given to the 
congregation. It is thus recorded in the church book : 
♦'Anno, 1788, April 6th, Mrs. Catherine Opp, wife of 
Michael Opp, presented the Reformed Congregation with 
a gift of Five Pounds. This sum of Five Pounds shall be 
constantly invested, and the interest derived therefrom 
shall be used for the German education of a poor child of 



52 The First Reformed Church of Easton^ Pa. 

the congregation." Thus early was some regard had for 
the poor and destitute children (it may be orphans) of the 
congregation. 

The removal of Dr. Hermann, was followed again by a 
vacancy, which continued until August, 1793, when Rev. 
Dr. Christian Ludwig Becker, father of the Rev. Dr. 
Jacob Christian Becker, and grandfather of Mr. Thomas 
H. Becker, at present an elder of this congregation, be- 
came pastor. Dr. Becker was a man of more than ordi- 
nary ability and of thorough education, having spent, with 
great diligence and application, more than twenty years 
in college and university before he entered upon the duties 
of the ministry. Moreover, he was a man of extraordi- 
nary eloquence, " and in preaching was frequently caught 
up into a most overwhelming overflow of impassioned elo- 
quence and tender feeling. He would at times sway a 
congregation as a wind moves a forest of pines, so that 
the stoutest would bend to the power that breathed upon 
them." The congregation by whom he was much be- 
loved, was permitted to enjoy the ministry of this gifted, 
eloquent and pious father only for a short time. After he 
had preached here eighteen months, " he received a call 
from Lancaster, Pa., which, after much reflection and con- 
siderable reluctance, he at length accepted, and removed 
from Ea^ton, March, 1795." 

Dr. Becker was succeeded by Rev. Thomas Pomp, the 
only son of Rev. Nicholas Pomp, who was one of the four 
missionaries sent to this country in 1760 by the Reformed 
Church of Holland. Father Pomp took charge of the 
congregation in July, 1796, and continued to be its pastor 
for more than half a century. As there are not a few 
members of the congregation still living who enjoyed the 
advantage of sitting under his ministry, I need only say 



The Organization of the Congregation. 53 

that he labored with untiring zeal, universal acceptance, 
and great success in the congregation, and in the other 
three associated with it, being so devoted to his holy work 
that he only ceased from it when compelled to do so by the 
infirmities of old age. 

It was during the pastorate of Father Pomp that two 
great events occurred in the history of the congregation. 
The first was the remodeling and reconstruction of the 
church. Up to 1830 the church had been owned and oc- 
cupied jointly by the Reformed and St. John's Lutheran 
congregations. In 183 1 the Lutheran congregation sep- 
arated from the Reformed, built a church for themselves 
and sold their interest in this church to this congregation 
for $1,600. 

As soon as the congregation came into sole possession 
of the church it began to move in the direction of its re- 
construction. At a meeting of the consistory, held May 
23, 183 1, committees were appointed to collect money to 
purchase the Lutheran interest in the church and to recon- 
struct it. At a congregational meeting held January 2, 
1832, Peter Shnyder, Philip Odenwelder and Daniel W. 
Butz were appointed a committee to whom was intrusted 
the whole matter of reconstructing the church, and at a 
meeting held on the 21st of the same month (January) it 
was resolved to build the steeple on the north side 
of the church, the whole building being rough-casted, 
and the building committee were instructed to proceed 
at once to make contracts for lumber, etc. The con- 
tract for the work was given to Mr. Clark Lowry, and 
the building was reconstructed into its present form and all 
ready except the steeple, for consecration in November, 
1832. Accordingly, on Sunday, the 25th of November, 
1832, it was reconsecrated with appropriate service. The 



54 The First Reformed Church of Easton^ Pa. 

Rev. Dr. Theodore L. Hoffeditz preached the dedicatory 
sermon, in German, in the morning ; the Rev. Samuel 
Hess preached, in German, in the afternoon, and Rev. 
Dr. Bernhard C. Wolff, in English, in the evening. The 
services were continued during the following Monday, 
when Rev. Dr. Benjamin S. Schneck preached, in Ger- 
man, in the morning ; Rev. B. C. Wolff, in English again, 
in the afternoon, and Rev. Dr. John Gray, of Easton, also 
in English, in the evening. The steeple was not finished 
until 1833. The whole cost of the reconstruction was 
about $25,000. 

The other important event mentioned as having taken 
place during Father Pomp's ministry was the introduction 
of the English language into the services of the congrega- 
tion. The German was the language in which the wor- 
ship of the congregation was conducted from the begin- 
ning of its history, and continued to be so used until 1831. 
Then there seems to have existed in the congregation a 
want and demand for some services in English, which 
Father Pomp and the consistory sought to provide for by 
the adoption of the following resolution: "Inasmuch as 
the English language is becoming more and more preva- 
lent in our country, so that it may be necessary to have 
English divine services, therefore, it is permitted to have 
English services on the alternate Sundays, or on the after- 
noon on which German services are held. Provided that, 
as the charter requires, the preacher who conducts in Eng- 
lish services be a member of a German Reformed Synod of 
the United States, or at least must have his call to this con- 
gregation confirmed by this Synod." This action, while 
it indicated progress, was, all things considered, nothing 
less than revolutionary in its character, and especially 
the fact that Father Pomp not only did not resist the intro- 



The Organization of the Congregation, 55 

duction of English into the service of the congregation, as 
many other pastors then did and still do, but was actually 
the chairman of the committee which offered the resolution 
making the change and cordially approved of its adoption. 
This conduct on his part speaks volumes for the liberal 
and self-sacrificing spirit which so signally characterized 
his whole relation to the congregation from the beginning 
to the end. 

The way being thus opened for the introduction of Eng- 
lish services, the congregation proceeded to supply its 
want in this regard, but did not succeed in doing so un- 
til December 12, 1832, when Rev. Dr. Bernard C. Wolff 
was elected " as assistant minister, to preach in the Eng- 
lish language." The call, which in pursuance of this 
election was extended to Dr. Wolff, was accepted by him, 
and on Sunday, April 7, 1833, he preached his introduc- 
tory sermon. 

There never were, perhaps, two truer "yoke-fellows," 
as St. Paul phrases it, associated together in ministerial 
labor in the same congregation than Father Pomp and Dr. 
Wolff. Being in a large degree of similar disposition and 
temperament, amiable, kindly and easy to be entreated ; 
and being actuated by the same lofty spirit of devotion to 
their holy work and self-sacrifice in its prosecution, they 
labored together in peace and harmony, to the great satis- 
faction and prosperity of the congregation, for a period of 
about twelve years. 

In December, 1844, Dr. Wolff received a call from the 
Third Reformed Church in Baltimore, Md., which he felt 
constrained to accept. Accordingly he resigned his co- 
pastorate of this congregation and removed from it in 
February, 1845. The vacancy this made in the English 
co-pastorate (Father Pomp still continuing as senior Ger- 



56 The First Reformed Church of Easton, Pa. 

man pastor) was supplied in April, 1845, by Rev. Dr. J. 
H. A. Bomberger accepting a call thereto. The work of 
building up the congregation in temporal and spiritual 
things continued to be carried forward with marked suc- 
cess by the two pastors now in charge. Being still of one 
heart, and one mind, and one purpose, they continued to 
cooperate, each in his sphere, not only without any fric- 
tion or embarrassment, but with the most amicable spirit 
and in complete harmony. 

It was about this time that one of the most pleasing 
episodes in Father Pomp's ministry in this congregation 
occurred. He now had been pastor of the congregation 
for fifty years. It was happily conceived that this fact 
was worthy of being commemorated in some special man- 
ner. The suggestion commended itself to the consistory, 
who, at a meeting held June 13, 1846, resolved that the 
semi-centennial anniversary of Father Pomp's pastorate be 
properly celebrated, and proceeded to make the necessary 
arrangements to do so. This celebration took place on 
Sunday, July 19, 1846, in this church, in the presence of 
a congregation which thronged the building. The ser- 
vices consisted of a brief statistical report of his labors for 
fifty years by Father Pomp, and a commemorative sermon 
by Rev. Henry Bibighaus, of Philadelphia, in German, in 
the morning ; in the afternoon Rev. Dr. T. L. Hoffeditz 
and Rev. Dr. J. C. Becker deliver addresses, also in Ger- 
man, the latter presenting, in the name of the congregation, 
a beautifully bound copy of the Bible to Father Pomp, 
who was so overcome by his feelings that he could only 
respond in the melting language of tears ; in the evening 
Rev. Dr. B. C. Wolff, former associate pastor, preached 
an appropriate sermon, of an historical character, in Eng- 
lish. The whole occasion was one which was as gratify- 



The Organization of the Congregation. 57 

ing to him whom it was designed to honor as it was credit- 
able to the congregation. 

But now also shadows began to gather over the pathway 
of Father Pomp. Not only had old age, with its infirmi- 
ties, almost imperceptibly crept upon him, but his naturally 
strong constitution and robust health commenced to suffer 
from his onerous labors in this and the associated congre- 
gations of Dryland and Plainfield. He now stood in his 
place as a tried veteran, whose spirit was still strong and 
willing, but whose flesh was weak, and growing weaker; 
and being no longer able physically to discharge the duties 
of his holy office to his own satisfaction, he retired from 
active service April 19, 1850, still retaining, however, his 
official relation as pastor, with salary. Four years later, 
in the early morning of April 22, 1852, death gently re- 
leased him from all his earthly labors and trials, "in the 
eightieth year of his age, the sixtieth of his ministry, and 
the fifty-seventh of his pastorate in Easton." 

During the latter part of Father Pomp's ministry, in 
1846, the congregation fell heir to a legacy of $1,000, 
which had been bequeathed to it by Jacob Arndt, Esq., in 
1833 ; the legacy not being available until after the death 
of his wife and brother Abraham. 

When Father Pomp withdrew from active service a 
vacancy was made in the German pastorate. At the 
urgent request of the consistory. Dr. Bomberger, much 
against his will, consented to become a candidate therefor, 
and was unanimously elected. The services in the two 
languages were thus united in one person, and Dr. Bom- 
berger became the sole pastor of the congregation, and 
continued to be such, officiating in both German and Eng- 
lish languages, with great acceptance to the congregation 
and with encouraging success, until August, 1854, when, 



58 The First Reformed Church of Easton^ Pa. 

having accepted a call to the First Reformed Church of 
Philadelphia, he resigned and removed to that city. 

A few facts which occurred during the time of Dr. 
Bomberger's pastorate are worthy of being noted here. 
In May, 1850, the congregation received a legacy of $500 
from the estate of Mr. David Meixel, which was be- 
queathed by him on the condition that only the interest 
thereof be used " to repair and ornament the graveyard of 
the congregation." 

In July of the same year The Female Benevolent So- 
ciety of the congregation received a legacy of $5,000 from 
the estate of Peter Miller, Esq., the interest of which was 
to be used by them for the benefit of the poor of the con- 
gregation and of the Sunday-school. During the fall and 
winter of the same year the Session Room was built, and 
during the summer of 1852 the church was frescoed and 
gas was introduced into it. 

During the fall and winter of 1852-3 the present par- 
sonage was built, and thus a new home was provided for 
the pastors of the congregation, the old parsonage having 
been sold September 25, 1852. 

Dr. Bomberger was succeeded in the pastorate of the 
congregation in September, 1854, by him who is still 
pastor of it, and the historian of the present occasion (Rev. 
John Beck). Leaving the estimate of his character and 
official work to others we will simply mention a few mat- 
ters which have occurred within the time of his ministry, 
and which we deem deserving of record in this sketch. 

In the summer of 1865 the church was repainted, cal 
cimined and somewhat repaired, and put into the condition 
and order in which it still is. 

On July 19, 1869, the congregation received a legacy 
of ten shares of Phillipsburg Bank Stock from Anthony 



The Organization of the Congregation. 59 

Loudenburg, of Phillipsburg, N. J., to be used for the 
education of poor young men for the ministry of the Re- 
formed Church. 

By the death of the older members of the congregation, 
and by the prevalence of the English language in the 
community, the need for the use of the German in the 
public worship of the congregation grew less and less. 
At length, after much deliberation, many changes, and 
great tribulation, the German was entirely discontinued in 
the fall of 187 1, and since then the public services of wor- 
ship have been conducted exclusively in the English lan- 
guage. 

This one statement more needs to be made to complete 
this hasty sketch. This church and congregation stood 
alone in this town and vicinity in 1776. Now one hundred 
years after, in 1876, at least six additional flourishing con- 
gregations are existing on the same territory, and this 
congregation is the mother of them all. 

And now, as w^e bring this historical sketch to a close, 
many earnest thoughts and practical reflections press for 
utterance ; but we will refrain from giving them record or 
expression at this time and on this occasion ; neither would 
we tax your patience any longer. We crave your atten- 
tion for but one thought more. These old walls, plain 
though they be, have been hallowed not only by special 
acts of consecration, but by the praise, and prayer, and 
worship of a century, and, to the eye of a reverent faith, 
are studded as thickly with the shining tokens and memo- 
rials of the divine presence and favor, vouchsafed to the 
fathers and children of more than three generations, as a 
dark night is studded with stars. How many faithful 
souls have been made meet within them by the word and 
the sacraments for an inheritance among the saints in 



6o The First Reformed Church of Easton, Pa. 

light, eternity alone will disclose, and it is inspiring to 
believe that they, as a cloud of witnesses, are looking 
down upon us from the heavenly world as we are to-day 
engaged in these memorial services. 

But it is not only these walls, with their hallowed associ- 
ations, that we have inherited from the fathers and founders 
of this church. They have also transmitted to us and our 
keeping the more precious legacy of their faith and order, 
for the maintenance and defence of which they deemed 
no sacrifice too costly. If on to-day, throughout this 
broad, fair land, the recital of the heroic deeds of the 
fathers and founders of our civil order, and of the num- 
berless temporal and political blessings bestowed upon us 
as a nation, will stir up in every patriotic heart feelings of 
profound gratitude, and kindle anew a flame of a holy 
devotion to the principles of liberty, justice and equality, 
then surely, inasmuch as spiritual blessings and privileges 
far transcend in value those which are temporal and civil, 
the recital thus imperfectly rendered of what the fathers 
and founders of this church and congregation did and 
suffered, the priceless spiritual blessings bestowed upon 
them and us, should not only awaken in our hearts feelings 
of gratitude to God, which should constrain us to call upon 
our souls and all the powers within us to praise and bless 
the Lord, but also impel us here to-day to register the old 
vow of a whole-soul devotion and love, with a new mean- 
ing : "If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand 
forget her cunning. If I do not remember thee, let my 
tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth ; if I prefer not 
Jerusalem above my chief joy." 



RECENT HISTORY. 



* I * HE long pastorate of the Rev. Dr. John Beck, 
^i^ covering a period of more than a score of 'years, 
1^^^ ended with his death, April 19, 1877. His 
death occurred suddenly, during the interval 
between his resignation as pastor and the date on which it 
was to take effect, and came as a shock to the congrega- 
tion and community. His ministry for so many years had 
been characterized by scholarly ability, a patient and effi- 
cient fidelity to the welfare of the congregation. Of his 
ability as a scholar and writer the foregoing most valuable 
historical sketch is evidence which will long remain, and 
for which the future will be grateful. 

Rev. Thomas C. Porter, D.D., was the next pastor, 
installed August 29, 1877. For a very considerable time 
he had held a prominent place in the Faculty of Lafayette 
College, and, though retaining his relations to the college, 
filled in a faithful, devoted manner a pastorate of seven 
years, during which time there were many accessions to 
the church, and an elegant organ, the largest in Easton, 
was purchased. In the early part of Dr. Porter's term 
the old volunteer choir was dispensed with and the modern 
innovation of salaried choristers introduced. Another 
feature was the inaugurating of early services at Christmas 
and Easter, which have constantly grown in favor, not 
only with the congregation, but the general public. An- 
other change was that the high pulpit, built in 1832, was 
lowered, after being in use half a century. In 1884, 
Dr. Porter finding that advancing years prevented the 
double duties he had been performing since his installa- 

61 



62 The First Reformed Church of Fusion, Pa. 

tion, tendered his resignation, which was accepted with 
considerable regret by the consistory and congregation. 
In his closing sermon, Dr. Porter, after referring to the 
very pleasant and cordial relations which had existed be- 
tween him and his flock, incidentally mentioned that it 
was twenty-three years previous that he first preached in 
the church. This was during the session of the Synod of 
the German Reformed Church, in 1861, when President 
Lincoln appointed September 26 as a day of fasting and 
prayer, and Dr. Porter was invited to preach the sermon 
before the Synod and the congregation. During the years 
1867-69, when there were alternate services in German 
and English, Dr. Porter preached in English in the Ses- 
sion Room on those Sundays when Dr. Beck held services 
in German in the church proper. 

The pastorate of the church having become vacant by 
the resignation of Rev. Dr. Porter, the Rev. H. M. Kief- 
fer, pastor for eleven years of the church of the Ascen- 
sion, Norristown, Pa., was called at a meeting of the 
congregation held on the evening of August 11, 1884. 
The newly elected pastor was duly installed on Thursday 
evening, October 30th, by a committee of East Pennsyl- 
vania Classis appointed for the purpose, consisting of the 
Rev. Dr. T. C. Porter, Rev. T. O. Stem and Rev. Dr. 
D. Y. Heisler, the latter preaching the installation sermon. 
The new pastor preached his introductory sermon the fol- 
lowing Sunday morning, November 2, taking as his text, 
Philippians 1:2, " Grace be unto you, and peace, from 
God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ." 

In the early part of 1885, preparations were made for 
repairing the church building which had stood without any 
material change or improvement (with the exception of the 
lowering of the old pulpit and the purchase of a new pipe 



Recent History. 63 

organ) since the year 1832. The old Third Street 
Church, so widely known in the community and through- 
out the Reformed denomination for its open-handed liber- 
ality, had generously assisted in the erection and improve- 
ment of many churches and in the relief and support of 
many poor and struggling congregations, meanwhile al- 
lowing its own house of worship to suffer from neglect 
and to present, with the passing years, a somewhat shabby 
appearance. Loth to affect any very material changes, 
least of all to alter the ancient and venerable appearance of 
the building, the congregation still felt that some steps must 
be taken toward repairing and improving the property. 

Accordingly a committee was appointed by the consis- 
tory some time in March, 1885, composed of the following 
persons : Elders Jacob Rader, William Keller, Henry 
Young ; Messrs. William H. Thompson, Thomas Rinek, 
Horace S. Bachman (the name of the pastor, Rev. H. M. 
Kieffer, was subsequently added), to devise a plan of re- 
pairs and ways and means of securing the needed funds. 
This committee having secured the services of an architect, 
John M. Stewart, of Easton, spent many days in the old 
church, examining walls, floors and timbers, and consid- 
ering and discussing how best the changes might be made. 
A plan having at length been adopted, it was concluded 
to make no canvass of the congregation for the purpose of 
soliciting subscriptions in the usual way, but to prepare a 
printed circular, which should set forth the need of the 
repairs and appeal to the liberality of the people. The 
Sunday morning previous to the sending out of these cir- 
culars, viz., on June 21, 1885, the people were publicly 
advised from the pulpit of the intention of the committee, 
the pastor preaching a sermon upon the subject of " The 
Building of the Tabernacle." (Exodus xxxv, 20-22.) 



64 The First Reforined Church of Easton, Pa. 

In the course of a month, or thereabout, the sum of six 
thousand dollars was secured, the people manifesting a 
great readiness and cheerfulness in the work. This 
amount was at first thought sufficient for the changes and 
improvements contemplated, but it was soon found, as is 
usual in such cases, that more money would be needed. 

The church building, as it was before the repairs were 
begun, presented an appearance somewhat different, both 
externally and internally, from what the beholder sees it 
to be at the present day, although the general features of 
the building remain unaltered. Prior to the repairs, the 
outer walls were of a pale yellow color. The steeple, as 
well as all the woodwork, was painted white, and had on 
it the dial of the town clock, some years ago removed to 
Zion's German Lutheran Church. The main entrance to 
the building was by a door on the Third street side, where 
the vestibule now is. The old woodwork, door posts and 
doors are there now. There was also another door on 
Third street, occupying the position of the upper window 
next Church street. Strictly speaking it was not a door, 
but served the purpose of both door and window. It has 
since been converted into a window. On Church street 
there were four windows, two downstairs and two upstairs, 
two on either side of the pulpit. These have been closed 
up. The entrance on the east, or parsonage side, was the 
same as now. 

Internally the changes were more marked than on the 
exterior. Passing into the church, as it was before the 
repairs, one observed, as he entered the vestibule, two box 
stairways leading to the galleries. He noticed that the 
ceiling of the vestibule was low and somewhat cramped in 
appearance by the projection into it of an old "bellows 
gallery " used in former times for the organ, but since 



Recent History, 65 

fallen into disuse except as a lumber room. Where the 
two large arches now are, two doors of ordinary size 
opened into the central part of the vestibule. The en- 
trances from the vestibule into the audience room were 
located at the same places as now, except that the side 
doors have been moved further toward the wall and the 
inner jambs sloped where they were at right angles before. 
There were six rows of pews instead of four, as at present, 
with three aisles separating them, the central aisle being 
where it is now, and the side aisles not being along the 
walls but separated from them by a row or tier of short 
pews. The old pews, indeed, were all short, all being of 
the same length. They contained three, or at the most 
four, sittings. They were low in the back, narrow in the 
seat, and very close together, and were generally con- 
sidered models of discomfort. After the fashion prevail- 
ing in old-time churches, the pews were box pews, being 
furnished with doors. The pews, as well as the galleries 
and woodwork generally, were painted a pure white, the 
walls being a plain gray color. The pulpit was a massive 
structure of mahogany. There was no recess, chancel 
rail or font. The windows were of ordinary or clear glass, 
and were furnished with "Venetian blinds." The posts 
under the galleries were heavy wooden affairs, which 
somewhat obstructed the view. These facts are here men- 
tioned, somewhat hastily, it is true, as being of some pos- 
sible interest in the future. 

The changes and repairs were actually commenced on 
the 22d day of July, 1885. What they consisted of may, 
perhaps, be best seen by comparing the above statement 
with the present appearance of the building. It may, 
however, be well to mention in a general way that the re- 
pairs were chiefly as follows : pulpit recess on Church

street; outer vestibule on Third street; changes and new 
stairways in inner vestibule ; new doors from the vestibule 
to the main audience room ; new floors upstairs and down ; 
new pews, with upholstering ; new gas fixtures ; chancel 
rail ; pulpit furniture ; stained glass windows (nine of these, 
or all on the first floor, being memorial windows) ; fresco- 
ing all the walls ; lowering the gallery fronts eight inches ; 
rearranging the gallery entrances and floors ; new pews in 
the galleries. The outer walls were repainted, the color 
being changed from a pale yellow to a stone gray. The 
roof was repaired ; new spouting was put up ; the ball and 
vane on the steeple taken down and regilded. It may be 
of interest to record that the old tin spouting had done 
constant service since 1832, that is for a period of fifty- 
three years ; and that Mr. Lewis Heller (at present in the 
employ of Mr. Daniel Black), when he was a young man, 
made the old spouting, and had the singular fortune also, 
when he was an old man, to help make the new. 

Nine memorial windows were erected to the memory of 
those who years ago or recently were active in the church 
work, and they are as follows : 

By Mrs. John Eyerman, to the memory of James and 
Mary Black, her father and mother. 

By Mrs. Mary Saylor, of Germantown, to the memory 
of Judge George Hess, her father. 

By Mrs. Charles Santee, of Philadelphia, to the memory 
of Peter and Elizabeth Shnyder, her father and mother. 

By. Mrs. William Lawall and her daughter Lillian, to 
the memory of William H. Lawall. 

By Miss Mary Mixsell, Mrs. Major Wykoff, Mr. C. 
Jacob Mixsell, and Mrs. Dr. Lalor, to the memory of 
their father and mother, Charles W. and Mary K. 
Mixsell.

By Mrs. John Hutchinson, to the memory of her mother, 
Ehzabeth Nicholas, and her family. 

By the Sunday-schools of the congregation, to the 
memory of Rev. John Beck, D.D., former pastor of the 
church. 

By private persons, to the memory of the Rev. Thomas 
Pomp and the Rev. Dr. Bernard Wolff, also former pastors 
of the church. 

The entire cost of these repairs and memorial windows 
was about $12,000, and the work has been thoroughly 
done. 

Willing minds gave their opinions ; loving care for the 
ancient structure preserved it almost entirely intact ; skill- 
ful hands directed the various changes, and earnest com- 
mitteemen lent months of time to the tiresome, tedious, 
troublesome task. But at last the work was done, and the 
old walls without and within, save as to color, are the 
same. They still reecho, though too faint for ear to dis- 
cern, the stirring eloquence, the pathetic appeals, the 
solemn warnings, the tender solicitude of the pastors who 
have long ago lain down in their graves, sleeping a blessed 
sleep after a life of devotion to the holy work of saving 
souls ; the anthems of to-day are reflected by the same 
boundaries that reverberated the plaintive melodies, the 
solemn hymns, and the grand old tunes of a hundred years 
ago. 

On Sunday morning, February 21, 1886, the Rededi- 
catory Services began at the usual hour of worship — 10.30 
o'clock. The church was crowded to its utmost capacity, 
and had there been more seats there would have been 
numbers of people to occupy them. As the organist 
played a voluntary, the pastor. Rev. H. M. Kieffer, and 
the assisting clergymen. Rev. Dr. Thomas G. Apple,

President of Franklin and Marshall College, Lancaster; 
Rev. Dr. J. Spangler Kieffer, of the Reformed Church, 
Hagerstown, Md., brother of the pastor; Rev. Dr. Reily, 
President of the Allentown Female College ; Rev. Thomas 
C. Porter, D.D., of Lafayette College, the recently es- 
teemed pastor of the church ; Rev. T. O. Stem, pastor of 
St. Mark's Reformed Church; Rev. D. Y. Heisler, D.D., 
pastor of Grace Reformed Church, all of Easton, entered 
and assumed places in the pulpit. It was an imposing 
scene. Dr. Apple occupied the principal seat in the 
alcove, with Rev. Dr. Kieffer on his left and Rev. Dr. 
Reily on his right. Dr. Porter occupied the seat at the 
reading desk ; Rev. Stem opposite, while Dr. Heisler and 
Rev. H. M. Kieffer were seated near the foot of the pulpit 
steps. An anthem by the choir was followed by a prayer 
by Dr. Porter, who also read the scripture lesson and an- 
nounced the hymn. The collection and anthem were next 
on the program, and then Dr. Apple arose and delivered 
his Rededicatory Sermon, taking his text from Psalms 
LXXXIVri, "How amiable are Thy tabernacles, O 
Lord of Hosts." 

The sermon in the evening was preached by the Rev. 
Dr. J. Spangler Kieffer, of Hagerstown, Md. , the brother of 
the pastor, taking for his text Colossians i : lo, " Increas- 
ing in the Knowledge of God." 

For the above account of the recent history of the con- 
gregation we are indebted to the interesting sketch pre- 
pared by the editor of the Easton Free Press^ Mr. C. N. 
Andrews, and afterward published in pamphlet form. 

It may also be worthy of note here that a very worthy 
elder of the congregation. Colonel Peter Kichline com- 
manded a company of troops from Easton during the 
Revolution, and with his men as sharpshooters rendered 



Recent History. 69 

most valiant service to Washington's forces at the disas- 
trous battle of Long Island. They covered the retreat of 
the Continental forces, and saved the army from capture. 

Colonel Kichline had taken much interest in the erec- 
tion of the new church, but before it w^as completed he 
marched away with his men to Washington's camps, 
and saw it finished for the first time when, after the battle 
above named, he brought his sick and wounded men to 
Easton, and found a comfortable shelter for them in the 
new church building. 

Another event of interest connected with this old church 
is the fact that, in October, 1779, when Sullivan's army re- 
turned from its long march against the Western Indians in 
the Genesee Country in New York State, and reached 
Easton in October of that year. Chaplain Evans of the 
New Hampshire Brigade, by special appointment, preached 
a sermon in the church to the soldiers of the expedition.

THE OLD ORGAN AND ITS SUCCESSORS. 

SOR the benefit of those who are to come after, some 
of whom will undoubtedly be grateful for the 
information here given, it may be well to give 
'^""^ some account of the musical instruments used 
in this historic church. Some of the facts here given have 
been but very recently ascertained, and are known to few 
if any of the members of the congregation. 

It may seem strange that, at such an early period in the 
history of the Forks of the Delaware, when the settlers 
were both poor and few in number, they should undertake 
the building of a church of such considerable proportions 
and involving such an outlay of money. But it must be 
remembered that these poor Germans were pious people. 
With them religion and the church were first. It is re- 
markable, also, that no sooner was the church built than 
an organ was purchased and duly installed in the organ 
loft. For the German loved music — music and religion 
were, to his mind inseparable, and a church without an 
organ was inconceivable. 

So, no sooner was the church finished than the organ 
appeared, as we know from the fact that when the Indian 
Treaty was held in 1777, the organ was played during 
the friendly handshaking and rum-drinking, according 
to the record. The organ was built, we are informed, by 
one Dannaker, in 1775. 

What has become of this organ? We were always 
under the impression that it had long since been consigned 
to the junk-shop or the ash-barrel, such being the fate, un- 
fortunately, of many of our priceless antiquities. But, lo I 

70 



The Old Organ and its Successors, 71 

while engaged in this writing I am informed that the 
church at Plainfield, once and for many years served by 
the pastors of the church in Easton, was about to hold a 
rededication of their church organ, which they had lately 
enlarged and improved ; also, that the organ in question is 
the original instrument used in the Easton church, having 
been purchased by the Plainfield congregation in 1833. 
In connection with which statement I am asked to give the 
people of Plainfield any information I may possess con- 
cerning their old organ. "Who was the builder, and 
when was it built? Was it played at the Indian Treaty of 
1777?" To which interrogatories a full and courteous 
response was given, with the request that it be read at the 
rededication of the venerable organ, now one hundred and 
twenty-five years old. 

That was the original organ. It was sold to the Plain- 
field church in 1833, and a new organ purchased, which 
in its turn was in constant use for half a century, yielding 
its place about the year 1880 to the very excellent instru- 
ment now in use. 

One can only regret the loss of some of these old things. 
May we not hope that some day the old organ may come 
back to this church? There is room for it in the Session 
Room, or Chapel — if indeed the Plainfield people will 
ever graciously part with it out of regard for the congre- 
gation to which it once belonged. 



THE CHANGE IN THE NAME OF THE CHURCH. 



^ I "^ HE original name of the congregation was "The 

•^ I German Reformed Congregation of Easton." 

^^^ By this name it was commonly and popularly 

known from the beginning of its history, and by 

this "name, style and title" it was legally and formally 

denominated in its original charter granted in the year 1808. 

In the course of time, however, some change in the 
name of the congregation began to appear necessary. 
The reasons for such a change are herewith given : 

I. The name " German" was no longer suitable : first, 
because this word was by due authority of the Synod 
dropped from the official and legal name of the denomina- 
tion as a whole, which since 1866 was known as "The 
Reformed Church in the United States," and not "The 
German Reformed Church in the United States " as for- 
merly. To retain the name, " German," for the congrega- 
tion after it had been dropped by the denomination seemed 
incongruous. 

Then, too, the congregation had long ceased to be Ger- 
man. From the date of its organization until the year 
1833, when the first English pastor was installed, all the 
services of the church had been held in the German tongue. 
From that date onward the German began to decline and 
the English to strengthen, good old "Father Pomp," the 
German minister, saying to Dr. Wolff his English assistant 
— "you must increase but I must decrease." German 
services, however, still continued to be held, at first in the 
morning, afterward in the afternoon, until toward the close 
of the pastorate of the Rev. Dr. Beck. But the German 

72 



The Change in the Name of the Church. 73 

services were but poorly attended, and were maintained 
for years merely out of a tender regard for the preferences 
of the older and declining portion of the congregation. In 
the course of time the old people who were attached to the 
German had almost entirely passed away, and German 
ceased to be used. This was in the year 187 1. From 
that date onward all the services of the church were in the 
English tongue, and to continue calling the congregation 
" German" when it was no longer so, was plainly inap- 
propriate and often misleading to the general public. 

Furthermore — when this congregation was organized 
there was but this one Reformed church in Easton — since 
then four other Reformed churches having been estab- 
lished, the original name of the congregation ceased to be 
distinctive. And this difficulty was still further intensified 
by the establishment of a Dutch Reformed Church on 
Spring Garden Street. There being then tzvo Reformed 
churches in Easton and in close proximity to each other, 
it became necessary to distinguish them, and so, for many 
years the congregation of which we are writing was popu- 
larly known as "The Third Street Reformed Church." 
This name it retained for more than thirty years, being 
known by one name in law and by another in common 
usage. 

This state of things was plainly undesirable, and the 
necessity for a change became apparent. In order that 
the change of name might be made in a regular and formal 
manner, it was thought well to secure an amended charter 
from the Court of Northampton. A new charter was de- 
sirable, quite independently of the matter of the name ; and 
this chiefly for the reason that the old charter was no 
longer suited, in many important respects, to the changed 
circumstances of the congregation. Accordingl}'-, after 



74 The First Reformed Church of Easton^ Pa. 

due application regularly made, the Court of Northampton 
County did, on the eighth day of March in the year 1897 
grant the congregation an amended charter whereby its 
name was changed to that which it presently bears — " The 
First Reformed Church of Easton."

THE CHIME OF BELLS. 



^ I "^ HE Chime of Bells in the tower of the old church 
■*■ , was erected during the opening days of the year 

^^P^ 1902, in commemoration of the one hundred 
and fifty-seventh anniversary of the founding 
of the congregation. The erection of this chime of bells 
was the result of an address delivered to the congregation 
by the pastor, Rev. Dr. Kieffer, on Sunday, November 
12, 1899, concerning the propriety of holding a jubilee 
service at some time in the near future in commemoration 
of the founding of the congregation about one hundred and 
fifty years ago. The pastor then suggested the placing of 
a chime in the tower as a suitable method of marking the 
sesqui-centennial milestone in the long history of the con- 
gregation, and dwelt at some length on the religious im- 
pressiveness of a chime of bells as being an undoubted 
source both of pleasure and profit to many people in a city 
like Easton, which so far has known no chime. After the 
service the matter was taken up by some of the people in 
a very enthusiastic manner, subscriptions for three bells 
being made on the spot — Miss Mary Alice Huber leading 
the way, followed by Mrs. Matilda Chidsey and Mrs. 
Thomas Rinek. Gradually all the bells were provided 
for, six being memorial bells, as named below ; one was 
given by the citizens of Easton in recognition of the close 
relationship which existed between this old church and the 
town of Easton from the earliest times, and one by the 
congregation as a whole. These, together with the great 
bell weighing 2,000 pounds placed in the tower at the cen- 
tennial 1876, make a complete chime of nine bells. 

75 



*]6 The First Reformed Church of East on, Pa. 

The old bell was removed from the tower by the 
Meneely Bell Company, during the month of September, 
1901, and taken to their foundry, at Troy, New York, for 
the purpose of having the other eight bells cast in harmony 
with it. In December following, very considerable changes 
were made in the tower to prepare a suitable foundation 
for the bells, old timbers being replaced by new, and other 
improvements made as will appear on inspection. Ex- 
clusive of the cost of these repairs, the chime, including 
the old bell, cost $6,000. The following is a schedule of 
the bells with the inscriptions and the names of the donors : 

1. F, 3,000 lbs. The Centennial Bell — 1876. 

2. G, 1,550 lbs. In Memory of the Pastor, Rev. Henry 
Martyn Kieffer, D.D. Presented by the congregation.

Baptisms. 

Anno 1760. The 28th of February a son was born, and baptized 
the 5th of April in the same year. The child received the 
name of Ludwig. The Sponsors were Philip Gress(ie) and 
Anna Margaretha, ejus uxor. The parents were Ludwig 
Knauss and. Elizabetha, ejus uxor. 

The above entry stands alone, and is in the handwriting 
of the Rev. John William Ingold, who was not pastor of 
the congregation until 1776. It is thought that the above 
record may have been made by Rev. Mr. Ingold some 
years after the baptism of the child. 

Then follows, in German handwriting that is exceed- 
ingly difficult to read, or rather to decipher : 

" The Record of certain children who were baptized by 
the Rev. C. P. Weyberg, the evidence of which fact lies 
in the circumstance that the records were found in his 
handwriting in certain stray memoranda."

The above records, which are evidently in the hand- 
writing of Rev. Fredenck L. Henop, who became pastor 
of the congregation in 1766, were made from memoranda 
left by Rev. Mr. Weyberg. The latter was the first regu- 
lar pastor of the congregation, taking charge 1763, but 
remained only six months. This statement may make 
clear the following note which is entered immediately after 
the above records : 

" These are the children whose names were found on 
slips of paper left behind by the Rev. Mr. Weyberg. It 
is indeed true that more names were on these slips, but 
inasmuch as one cannot tell whether they are the names 
of the parents, the sponsors, or the children, one did not 
wish to inscribe them, inasmuch as nothing should stand 
in this book but what one knows to be the truth." 

Then follow six blank leaves — left blank perhaps in the 
hope that other records of the Church might be there in- 
serted in proper place — and then follows the records of 
baptisms performed by the Rev. Frederick L. Henop, who 
became pastor at the date named above.

1775. April 30. [This entry is in the handwriting of the Rev. 
Johann Wilhehn Ingold, who became pastor in 1776.] A 
daughter was born, and some time thereafter was baptized, 
receiving the name Anna Catharine. Parents, John Reb- 
scher and his wife Elizabeth. God Parents, John Peter 
Ehrich (Ihrie?) and his wife Anna Catharine. 

1775. March 6. Was born George, a son of John Nicholas 
Trauch and his wife Anna Margaret. The sponsors at the

his wife Magdalena. 

1776. January 30. Was born John, a son of John Deichman

his wife Margaret. 

In the year 1776, and apparently in the spring of the 
year, the Rev. John William Ingold became pastor of the 
congregation, and continued in office for a period of ten 
years. His records are kept with exceeding care and 
most commendable clearness. The records are in the 
English characters for the most part, but here and there 
German characters are interspersed, the record thus show- 
ing the conflict of the two languages. Rev. Mr. Ingold's 
entries are made with good ink, and show as plainly as 
the day they were made. Each page is ruled into five 
columns, one each for " Parentes, Infantes, Nati, Bap- 
tizati and Comparentes " — these names indicating that Mr. 
Ingold was a good Latin scholar as well as a careful scribe.

[Having reached the beginning of the present living generation, 
it is thought well that the publication of the record of baptisms 
should cease at this point. It is to be understood, however, that 
the record runs on without a break to the present day. It would 
be impossible, within the limits of one volume, to continue the 
publication of all the baptisms and other entries.] 



Church Records. 277 

BOOK SECOND. 
The title-page bears the following inscription : 

"CHURCH-BOOK 
" In which the affairs of the Four united Reformed Congrega- 
tions shall be recorded, viz : Eastown, Greenwich, Dryland and 
Plainfield (Blaenfield). Eastown, August i, 1767." 

On the next page we read : 

"A record in this Church-Book of transactions and occur- 
rences that were especially noteworthy (^richt remarquabel) ." 

"Anno, 176S, September 7. The Coetus was held in 
Eastown." 

[By the Cochis is meant the Synod of the Reformed 

Church. By this name it was known from 1747 to 1793, 

that is to say, so long as it was dependent upon the Church 

in Holland it was known as The Coetus, but when, in 

1793, the body separated from the Church in Holland 

and became independent, it was thereafter known as The 

Synod.] 

Anno 1787. 

May 30. It was resolved by the four united congregations, 
Eastown, Greenwich, Dryland and Plainfield, that the Elder of 
the congregation at Eastown, Mr. John Deichman, should be 
sent along with the minister as Deputy to the Coetus to be 
held at Lancaster, June 6, 1787* 

Fredericus Herman, Pfarrer. 

Anno 178S. 
April 5. It was resolved by the Elders and Deacons of the four 
united Christian congregations, Eastown, Blaenfield, Truckland 
and Greenwich, that the Elder of the church in Blaenfield, 
Mr. Frederick Hauser, shall be sent with the minister as 
Deputy to the Coetus, which will be held April 23, in 
Reading. Frederick Hermann, V.D.M. 



278 The First Reformed Church of Easton^ Pa. 

Anno 1789. 
June 10. The Coetus of Pennsylvania was held in Philadelphia 
to which, along with the minister, Mr. Jacob Arndt, Senior, 
Esquire, was sent as the Deputy of the four congregations. 

Frid. Herman, Prediger ibi. 

Anno 1794. 
It was resolved by the four united congregations, Easton, Dry- 
land, Greenwich and Plainfield, that the Elder of the congre-

ceases at this point, 1844. He was now an aged and 
venerable man, having continued in office as pastor for 
forty-eight years. In the year 1845 the Rev. J. H. A. 
Bomberger became the Englist assistant pastor. In an- 
other book will be found his record of marriages, the first 
entry being made April 4, 1847. These records it is not 
our purpose to publish, our aim being merely to publish 
the records from the earliest entry down to the close of the 
ministry of the Rev. Thomas Pomp. 

It is further to be observed that "Father Pomp's " rela- 
tion to the congregation still continued in a regular man- 
ner, even after the coming of Rev. Mr. Bomberger as the 
assistant pastor. Father Pomp was still the regular Ger- 
man minister, and Rev. Mr. Bomberger the English pas- 
tor. This arrangement continued from 1845 to April 19, 
1850, when, owing to the increasing infirmities of age, 
Father Pomp retired from the active service of the church, 
still retaining, however, his official relation as pastor with 
salary. " Four years later in the early morning of April 
22, 1852, death gently released him from all his earthly- 
labors and trials, in the eightieth year of his age, the 
sixtieth of his ministry, and the fifty-seventh of his pastor- 
ate in Easton." 

During the latter years of his ministry he seems not to 
have made any entries of marriages, baptisms, etc., in the 
church books. From what I have learned from members 
of his family I am persuaded that he kept such records in 
a private memorandum book, his son William as occasion 
afforded, copying them into a book which was afterward 
used as an "Account Book." Some years ago, prior to 
the death of the sole survivors of his immediate family, the 
Misses Susan and Mary Pomp, I secured from them the 
privilege of cutting out the leaves of this account book 



39^ The First Reformed Church of Easton, Pa. 

which contained such records, and inserted them in the 
Church Register at the people place. I can find only the

CONCLUSION. 

It may be worth while to call the reader's attention to 
the fact that the above meager extracts from the proceed- 
ings of the consistories of these several churches show that 
it was not customary, in that day, and in the Reformed 
Church, for the same persons to succeed themselves in 
office as elders as deacons. When their terms of office 
expired, others were elected in their stead. 

Here the editor lays down his pen and brings his long 
and interesting work to a conclusion. His purpose origin- 
ally was simply to translate and publish the contents of the 
two oldest of the church books in the possession of the 
congregation. This he has now done. There are besides 
these two church books three others of a more recent date. 
These future pastors may care for. The editor's purpose 
was merely to put the oldest and most valuable records of 
the congregation in such a form that they could be neither 
lost nor destroyed by fire. It is really a wonder that these 
old books were not long since destroyed by fire or lost by 
careless handling. When they are once printed and dis- 
tributed no carelessness and no fire can ever destroy a lose 
all of the copies published. That these precious records 
may be preserved is the hope of the editor, and that every 
one who turns over the pages of these records of Christian 
people, long since gone to the better world, may have 
his name written in the Lamb's Book of Life is his most 
earnest prayer. 

" Then they that feared the Lord spake often to one an- 
other; and the Lord hearkened y and heard it, and a book

of remembrance zvas written before Him for them thai 
Jeared the JLord^ and that thought ufon His name. 

'■'•And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of Hosts, in 
that day xuhen I make up my jewels, and I will spare him 
as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. Then 
shall ye return and discern between the righteous and the 
wicked, between him that set'vcth God and him that serveth 
Him not.'" Malachi III., 16-18. 

''^And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before 
God; and the books were opened; and another book was 
opened which is the book of life; and the dead were judged 
out of those things which -were written in the books, accord- 
ing to their works.'''' Rev. XX., 12.
