Biographical / Historical

Creek Monthly Meeting was established in 1782, set off from Nine Partners Monthly Meeting, under Purchase Quarterly Meeting. After the Separation there were two branches. Creek Monthly Meeting (Orthodox) and Stanford Monthly Meeting (Orthodox) joined in 1867, becoming Stanford Monthly Meeting (Orthodox). In 1925, Stanford Monthly Meeting (Orthodox) changed its name to Clinton Corners Monthly Meeting and reportedly ceased its affiliation with the Society of Friends in 1983. Creek Monthly Meeting (Hicksite) joined Stanford Monthly Meeting (Hicksite) in 1871, becoming Creek and Stanford Monthly Meeting. In 1876, the name of this meeting returned to Creek Monthly Meeting. In 1935, as a result of reduced membership, Creek Monthly Meeting (Hicksite) merged with Oswego Monthly Meeting, now known as Bulls Head-Oswego Monthly Meeting.
