: Trinity Reformed church of Everett was organized in 1843, during the ministry of Rev. Matthew Irvin. Among the original members were Elizabeth Ebbert, Jacob S. Ritchey, Lewis Koons, and others whose names cannot be learned, there being no church record. The pastors from 1843-83, inclusive, have been: Revs. Matthew Irvin, Henry Heckerman, William M. Deatrick, Milton H. Saugree, Daniel H. Leader and William I. Stewart. The congregation worshiped in the stone church (now the Presbyterian) from the time of its organization until 1867, when it purchased the Methodist Episcopal church, which it remodeled and is still using. Arrangements are almost completed (in 1884) for building a new church on Spring street. The congregation now numbers seventy members (1884), and the sabbath school one hundred.
