The Sesqui-Centennial free pdf Excerpt from The Sesqui-Centennial: Or, the 150th Anniversary of the Deerfield Presbyterian Church, Cumberland County, New Jersey, Celebrated Thursday, Aug, 25th, 1887 One of the greatest events known in the history of Deerfield, N.J., was the 150th Anniversary of the Presbyterian Church, held August 25th, 188 T.It is estimated that from 1000 to 1200 persons were present. From 700 to 800 people took dinner and supper at the chapel provided for by the congregation. The church was crowded during the three sessions and part of the time it was calculated that there were as many persons on the outside of the building as inside. A large awning was stretched along the eastern side of the building, with camp stools underneath to accommodate the multitude on the outside, who were unable to gain access to the inside. The church was tastefully and beautifully decorated for the occasion. No pains were spared to give it an unusually attractive appearance. The music was excellent and could not be surpassed. The choir was assisted by four additional instruments of music. The services were of the most interesting character. The history of the church had been prepared by the pastor. Rev. A. J. Snyder, and read on that occasion, which occupied about an hour and fifteen minutes. The Rev. R. Hamill Davis, Ph. D., a former pastor, talked on Recollections. He referred touchingly to many incidents which occurred during his ministry here. The Hon. Clifford Stanley Sims, of Mount Holly, N. J., was present and made a few well chosen remarks. He is the great, great, grand-son of the Rev. John Brainerd, who lies buried beneath this church. The Rev. Allen H.Brown gave a very interesting account of the "The Presbyterian Church in South Jersey, its Origin and Progress." Mr. Caleb Allen, A.B., Principal of the West Jersey Academy, made a very entertaining address on the "Important Events of the past one hundred and fifty years." The Rev. Robert J. Burtt and Mr. Charles S. Tyler, sons of former pastors, offered short, yet appreciative addresses, referring to the church in former days.
