Van Vleck, Paulus
Van Vleck, Paulus a Reformed (Dutch) minister, whose relation to that body was somewhat irregular. The first account we have of him, he was a schoolmaster and precentor at Kinderhook, N.Y., in 1702, and preaching occasionally, from which, on complaint, he was made to desist. He was ordained by Bernardus Freeman in 1709 as chaplain of the Dutch troops then proceeding to Canada. He was pastor of the Low Dutch Church at Neshaminy, Bucks Co., Pa., 1710-12. He was accused of bigamy in 1712, and left the country in 1715.. See Corwin, Manual of the Ref. Church in America, s.v.
