Seek information as to what sect of the Baptist sect this church was? Did they meet on Saturday rather than Sunday? It may be that in New Jersey the families that founded this church were Quaker/Baptists, or 7th Day Baptists or Rogerines. I think those were closely aligned. Trying to determine the religious environment of founding families as to what they brought with them from NJ. Deacon Michael Pearce was considered highly religious. His father was John Pearce who may have been a son of Mrs. Sarah Pearce, a founding member of the Scotch Plains, NJ Baptist Church in 1749, which was considered a prominent Baptist Church in the Morris Co., NJ area from which a group of Rogerines branched off.
Any info. appreciated.
