At this meeting of the Consistory of the First Reformed Church attended by Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte, Wilterdink, Hekhuis, Appeldoorn, and Labots, elders and deacons, de Weerd and Wilterdink, the pastor proposed that the cemetery be divided into two parts. One part would be for public graves and the other part sold to individuals or families. The consistory approved the idea. Consistory would give Brother P. de Vries seventy-five cents a week to support the child of his brother-in-law. Affairs in the congregation seemed to be peaceful because no names were mentioned of people who could not take communion which was being celebrated soon.
