Note: Robert P. Christopher was a local elder in the New York East Conference who moved to Dundaff in 1879.  He appears to have specialized in starting congregations in both Conferences, and statements of his work in that area appear in the Dundaff and Forest City files.  He later moved back to the New East Conference as evidenced by this reference on page 87 of that 1898 journal: “The other wonder has been accomplished at the village of Brookhaven, where Brother R. P. Christopher, a local elder, long employed as a supply within the bounds of this Conference, is in charge. He found the church in a dilapidated condition and the people discouraged. He was fortunate in securing the friendship of the Rev. J. D. Wells, the venerable pastor of the South Third Street Presbyterian Church in this city [Brooklyn], who was spending his summer vacation at Brookhaven. Dr. Wells has shown much kindness to our cause in that village in former years. He encouraged Brother Christopher to undertake the required improvements, and made that undertaking possible by generously subscribing and obtaining contributions from prominent men of his own denomination. Brother Christopher and the members of the church did what they could, but the edifice, which is new to all appearance and very tasteful, is practically a gift from Presbyterians—their generosity making our gifts look small—and is an evidence of Christian brotherhood which should never be forgotten. The rebuilding cost about $1,800, and all the bills are paid.”
