Summary:

Letters, documents, written statements, and historical notes collected by Murray when researching the "murder'' of Reverend James Caldwell, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church at  Elizabethtown (now Elizabeth).  Included are a list of Revolutionary officers from the Elizabethtown church, a list of local Loyalists, and a letter describing anti-British demonstrations in New York City in July, 1776.  Murray, who was himself pastor of the First Presbyterian        Church from 1833 to 1861, used these materials to prepare a paper entitled "A Memoir of the Rev.  James Caldwell of Elizabethtown,'' read before The New Jersey Historical Society on May 25, 1848 and published in NJHS Proceedings, Series 1, 3 (1848): 79-89.

Gift of Mrs. Nicholas Murray, 1861.
