Overview and metadata sections
The San Jose Monthly Meeting was formed in 1866 by members of Honey Creek Monthly Meeting, and was under the care of Honey Creek Quarterly Meeting, Iowa Yearly Meeting, which it maintained a connection with throughout the life of the meeting. It was laid down in 1885; since that time other San Jose Monthly Meetings have existed, including one which began in 1970, and still exists today.
This collection consists of two volumes of minutes, one of which contains minutes from San Jose Monthly and Preparative Meetings, and one which contains minutes from San Jose Monthly Meeting. The latter also contains a brief description of the beginnings of worship in San Jose. The minutes contain business notes, as well as committee reports, responses to annual state of the meeting queries, membership decisions, and financial reports.
