Close of roll of familys resideing in the bounds of the Dutch Reformed church at Ephratah in 1842.

Said Roll made & entered by Rev. Ge. H. Huldings, who served as pastor in said church over 2 years, not ordained but as a supply, was an able propounder of the word of God. Highly educated and had his social habits equaled his highly attained pulpit services, would have made him a blessing here and elsewhere.
