Koog (Noord-Holland, Netherlands)
According to the minutes (Handelinghe) of the meeting of representatives of Flemish congregations held at Haarlem in 1649, a Flemish Mennonite congregation existed in Koog (Coogh), which, being vacant at that time, was to be served by Huisduinen. Obviously by Koog is meant Valkkoog, not far from Huisduinen in the Dutch province of North Holland. Of this congregation no further information was available; it must have died out in the 17th century.
