Biographical / Historical

Saratoga Quarterly Meeting was established in 1815 by Easton Quarterly Meeting. The Hicksite branch of this meeting joined Easton Quarterly in 1871 and eventually became Easton and Saratoga Half Yearly. The Orthodox branch attached Easton Quarterly (Orthodox) members when that meeting was laid down in 1835. In 1877 the meeting changed its name to Glens Falls Quarterly Meeting. In 1975 Glens Falls Quarterly and Ferrisburgh Quarterly merged and formed Northern Quarterly Meeting. In 1986 Northern Quarterly, Easton and Saratoga Half Yearly, and Quaker Street Regional Meeting merged and formed Northeastern Regional Meeting.
