Note: The Presbyterian Historical Society, Philadelphia, holds the records of Second Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia, where Rev. Janeway was assistant pastor, 1799-1812 and sole pastor, 1812-1828. At this time we have not determined whether anything of Rev. Janeway's own papers may have been preserved in that archives or elsewhere.
