Historical Note

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.
