Response to a query of mine to genforum Hudson Co.: "There were several German churches in Hudson County [NJ], two of which were these: one in Greeville section of Hoboken, and the other in Jersey City Heights. I believe they both went by the name of "German Evangelical" One was "Congregation of the Poor", I think, and don't remember the name of the other one. Pastor at Jersey City Heights church was named Hafer, in about 1906. If you find him in Census or City Directory, you could find the church."
Research: Lutheran Records of New York City in The NYG&B Library
"In the second quarter of the 19th century there began the greatest wave of German immigration into New York, as well as smaller migrations from other countries with Lutheran populations. After 1840, St. Matthew's became an exclusively German-speaking congregation; several new English-speaking Lutheran churches were split off from it; and still more churches were created to serve a growing and increasingly diverse Lutheran population."
