Overview and metadata sections
An independent meeting for worship comprised of Hicksite and Orthodox Friends was organized at Merchantville in 1897. A committee of oversight for this meeting was appointed by Haddonfield Quarterly Meeting (Orthodox) in 1897. Merchantville Friends hoped to form an indulgent meeting; no indulgence was ever granted, and the meeting continued to have an independent status. Haddonfield and Salem Quarterly Meeting released its committee of oversight of Merchantville Meeting in 1918 due to a "discouraging lack of support in the town." The meeting was discontinued by 1923.
Records of Merchantville Meeting include: independent meeting minutes, 1897-1923.
