This is a book of Dutch Church Psalms belonged to Samuel Copp Jr., born in Stonington, Connecticut in 1787. The Copp family had a long association with the First Congressional Church in Stonington, beginning with Jonathan Copp in 1699. His son Samuel became a deacon in 1802; this book was used by Samuel’s son Samuel Jr. around 1804. The book of Dutch Church Psalms contained the Psalms of David (set to a proper meter so they could be sung in church) as well as the Catechism, Compendium, Confession of Faith, and Liturgy for the Dutch Reformed Church. The book was printed and sold by Charles R. and George Webster in Albany, New York.
