Another article here mentions that Swedes were looking for a church location. A foto caption reads "Old Swedes'Church."

An agreement was ratified and the name Elias Toy is found on a "suitable instrument of writing."

The church was dedicated on July 2, 1700. It says many English were present at the ceremony and the pastor spoke also in the English language. I assume he spoke Swedish.
