Janeway, Jacob J, Dd
Janeway, Jacob J., D.D.
a Presbyterian minister of some note, was born in the city of New-York in 1774, and graduated at Columbia College in 1794. He joined the Presbyterians, but also served the (Dutch) Reformed Church for some time with great distinction. The infirmities of age obliged him to retire from the pastorate, and he resided the last years of his life at New Brunswick, N.J., where he died in 1858. Mr. Janeway wrote quite extensively. His most important contributions are commentaries on Romans, Hebrews, and Acts (Philadel. 3 vols. 18mo): — Internal Evidence of the Holy Bible: — Review of Dr. Schaff on Protestantism, etc. See (Pha.) Presb. Mag. May, 1853.
