Demarest,Cornelius T.

a (Dutch) Reformed minister, graduated at Columbia College, N.Y., in 1804; studied theology with Dr. Solomon Froeligh; was pastor at White House, N.J., from 1808 to 1813, and at English Neighborhood from 1813 to 1824, when he seceded to the True Reformed Church, giving occasion to a celebrated lawsuit as to the Church property (see Taylor, Annals of the Classis of Bergen, pages 261-285). His ministry in the True Reformed Church continued until his decease in 1863, his last eleven years being spent as pastor of the Church in King Street, New York. He published A Lamentation over the Reverend Solomon Froeligh, with copious historical notes. See Corwin, Manual of the Ref. Church in America, page 69. (W.J.R.T.)
