PRC Archives: The Grand Haven MI PRC Consistory

Thanks to some alert and knowledgeable readers, we are able to identify all of the men in the mystery photo from last week Thursday.

Grand Haven, MI PRC - late 1930s.

Grand Haven, MI PRC – late 1930s.

Mr. Jim Schipper and Rev.R. Miersma (see his comment) confirmed that this was the Consistory of Grand Haven MI PRC, of which Rev. Marinus Schipper was pastor from 1937-1939 – his first charge. So the picture is from one of those years, and therefore earlier than the one that appears in the PRC 25th anniversary book, to which Rev.Miersma refers.

With their input we can identify the men as follows (besides Rev.Schipper in the front): Mr. Nick Yonker (left), Mr. R. De Young (center), and Mr. Andrew Peterson (right – whose daughter-in-law and grandchildren are members in various PRCs).

Perhaps others can make some connections to current PRC members. Feel free to email me or leave a comment.

Thanks to the help of these men, I was able to remove this this photo from the “unidentified” folder, mark the back of it, and start a new photo file – Grand Haven PRC. And here is the picture that appears in the PRC 25th anniversary book of the Grand Haven Consistory (dated 1950):
