Sadly, long-time Friends Trustee Rev. Frederick Staton Bentley, Jr. and his wife Janet both passed away at the end of December due to COVID. Reverend Bentley, the last pastor of the Upper Freehold Baptist Church, was an invaluable source of historical church information and supporter of the Friends of the Old Yellow Meeting House for many years.
