DECEMBER 26, ____

2350.  Johannis Sie, Rachel Marteling / Johannis / H. Van Tessel, Catharina Storm

FEBRUARY 9, 1777

This is quite out of place in the order.  See date above, over No. 2289.

2351.  Hendrik Syffer, Rachel Van Weert / Marytje, b. Oct. 9, 1776 / No witnesses

The three baptisms now to follow (see the first birth date given) could not have taken place before October 3, 1777, and may have been administered later still.

2352.  Mattheus Vosie, Elizabet Gravestien / Johannis, b. Oct. 3, 1777 / No witnesses

2353.  Jakobus Sie, Jr., Marytje Van Tessel / Aaltie / No witnesses

2354.  William Tamkins, Sara Sie / Eva / Petrus Sie, Sophia de Revier his wife

From this point there seems to have been a long suspension of baptisms in the church.  Nos. 2355 and 2356 may have been administered late in 1779 or in 1780, but probably there was now a total break in the administration of the ordinances till the period of the Revolution had bone by.

Here comes in this statement:  "The following children were baptized by Domine Jackson, Nov. 20, 1791, for the first time."

The meaning of it is, that this was the Rev. John Frelinghuysen Jackson's first administration of baptisms as pastor of the church.  He was ordained, and installed in the joint pastorate of Harlem and Tarrytown November 13, 1791.  Seven days afterward he baptized the next five children on this register, and later still, on December 4th, will be seen, he baptized four more.  From December 4, 1791, the record must have been kept in a later book

There now remains two fragments of leaves, each closely filled on both sides.  Both are sadly decayed.  The first has, on one of its sides, eleven entries of baptisms, all probably administered within the year 1778, and on the other side eleven more--all made by another hand--of baptisms, none of which could have been administered before 1782.  The whole fragment belongs between 1778 and the pastorate of Rev. Stephen Voorhees, which began in 1785.

The second fragment is even more badly decayed than the first.  Its entries are all in English, and are kept in a style wholly different from the previous style of the great register.  It contains nine entries.  They all fall within the pastorate of the Rev. Stephen Voorhees, who was the first minister to introduce the English language into the services and records of the church.  His pastorate began in 1785 and ended in 1788.
