2. ^ • South Church Cemetery Superintendent John W. Koromhas provided me with a copy of a Veterans Graves Registration map of the cemetery done by the Works Progress Administration in the 1930s, and another document from his records that listed veterans in the cemetery. Based on these documents, the only person buried in this cemetery who can be identified as a Revolutionary War veteran is Captain Christie.
(Of course, there may be other Revolutionary War soldiers buried here who have not been identified.)
I would like to thank John for taking the time to speak with me, and for providing me with these documents.
• Birth and death date information from Captain Christie's gravestone
• William S. Stryker, Official Register of the Officers and Men of New Jersey in the Revolutionary War (Trenton: Wm. T. Nicholson & Co., 1872)
lists Christie, James. Captain, Bergen on page 385

3. ^ Information about the history of the church building was drawn from the History page of the church's website and the Bergen County Historical Society sign in front of the church.
Church website states that the present church building "was built a short distance to the west of the original building."
Bergen County Historical Society sign gives the more specific "150 feet."
