Reformed Dutch Church of Waterford NY

 

In his History of Saratoga County (1879) in the section on the village of Waterford,  N. B. Sylvester recited the history of that town's Reformed Dutch Church

 

"This society, now extinct, was the old pioneer church of Waterford; emphatically, the church of old times. The house of worship stood a mile and a half north, near the residence of Gradus Clute, now the Devitt place. This was taken down and removed to the corner of Middle and Third streets, the work being finished in 1799. This remained until the spring of 1876, when the society having ceased to exist, the property was sold, the venerable old building removed, and a handsome private residence is now erected upon its site. The corner-stone bore the date 1799, but careful search failed to discover any box of valuables deposited there. The year when the old house of worship up the river was built seems to be unknown, nor is it certain that it was the first. The recent manual of the Presbyterian church states the building "as just before the close of the Revolution," and this is doubtless correct. The church organization may very likely have been much older than that. The brief hints of ancient settlement, still extant, show sturdy defenders of the old Reformed faith as residents of Half-Moon Point for a hundred years before the Revolution. The records of this ancient society do not seem to have been preserved, and the names of its founders are not easily obtained."

 

The records here presented were transcribed from Records of the Reformed Dutch Church of Waterford, Saratoga County NY 1824-1862 (in one photostat volume at NY State Library, 1932).
