Summary
  • Register, 1745-1802, containing baptisms, 1745-1802; a few lists of communicants; the dedication of the church building, 1768; and the agreement of 1769. Entire register is in German. For a published translation, edited by William J. Hinke and Charles E. Kemper, see WILLIAM AND MARY QUARTERLY, series 1, 13 (1904-1905): p. 247-256, and series 14 (1905-1906): p. 9-19, 186-193. The arrangement of the published translation makes it difficult for one unfamiliar with the German script to locate a specific record, even with the translation on hand. (Accession 23592)

Biographical or historical data
Peaked Mountain was a union church until 1885. The two congregations shared three church buildings, one built prior to 1763 and one built in 1768, for which an agreement was drawn up on 31 October 1769, for shared responsibility in the care and support of the church. The third church was built in 1804 and dedicated on 27 May of that year by the prominent Lutheran minister, Christian Streit, and the equally prominent Reformed pastor John Brown. The two congregations worshipped together until 1885 when the Reformed members withdrew and erected their own church, Brown Memorial. The Lutheran Church was then known as St. John's, McGaheysville.
