Historic Tombstone Removed
Freehold, N.J., December 29.- A tombstone which marked the grave of the first pastor of Old Scot's CHurch, ordained 194 years ago today, has been removed from Old Scot's Cemetery, near this city and taken to Philadelphia, where it has been placed in the rooms of the Presbyterian Historical Society. It is of rough-hewn brownstone, about three feet high, two feet broad, and two inches thick. It marked the grave of Rev. John Boyd, who was ordained the first pastor of Old Scot's Church, by the First Presbytery, which met in this country on December 29, 1706. He was the first Presbyterian minister ordained in America. Last spring a monument was unveiled over his grave, so the old tombstone become useless.
