Florida Reformed Church

Florida Reformed Church, view from the road. The original building was constructed in 1808, and major renovations were undertaken throughout the years. Most of the church was recontructed in 1912, following a fire.

Consistory Minutes of the R.P.D.C.
Minaville 1864

This is the cover of a book entitled, "Consistory Minutes of the R.P.D.C. Minaville 1864," held in the church.

Michelle tells us "I'm a descendent of many of the big families in early New York: Vedder, du Traux, Van der Bogart, Glen, etc. I've recently traced many roots back to Montgomery Co., to the Arnot and McMichael families, between 1800 and 1850."
