SOME INTERESTING INCIDENTS OF THE LIFE AND TIMES OF JOHN MACLAY, SUBMITTED BY HIS 4TH DAUGHTER, LIVIA, ARE AS FOLLOWS:
EARLY IN THEIR WEDDED LIFE, HER PARENTS LIVED FOR A SHORT PERIOD IN A PIONEER CABIN, IN A LONELY PLACE IN THE "PINE MEADOWS" NEAR SHIPPENSBURG. HER FATHER HAD BEEN MAKING THE SALE OF SOME PROPERTY THAT DAY AND BROUGHT THE MONEY HOME WITH HIM. ABOUT MIDNIGHT THE OUTER DOOR OPENED SOFTLY. THE FRESH AIR STARTED UP A BLAZE IN THE GREAT "BLACK LOG", WHICH AROUSED THE COLORED SERVANT WHO WAS SQUATTED BY ITS SIDE WITH A TOOTHACHE. SHE SCREAMED " MR. MACLAY, THERE'S A MAN COMING IN ! " BUT BEFORE FATHER COULD REACH HIS GUN THE MAN WAS GONE. STRONG SUSPICION FELL, WITH THE WOMAN'S AFFIRMATION, UPON THEIR NEAREST NEIGHBOR, A ROUGH MAN, BUT THE AFFAIR WAS HUSHED UP FOR THE SAKE OF PEACE AND THE MONEY WAS SPEEDILY DEPOSITED IN A SAFE PLACE. IN THOSE DAYS THE WOODEN LATCH WITH THE LEATHERN STRING WAS STILL IN USE IN THE FRONTIER DEWLLINGS AND TO WAS PULL THE STRING AND THE LATCH WILL FLY UP.
ANOTHER INCIDENT GIVEN BY LIVIA, ILLUSTRATES THE PERILS AND HARDSHIPS OF THOSE TIMES IS AS FOLLOWS:
SOME TIME IN THE THIRTIES, FATHER AND MY OLDEST SISTER TOOK A JOURNEY TO THE WESTERN COUNTRY FOMR THEIR HOME IN SHIPPENSBURG, VISITING PITTSBURG, COLUMBUS, OHIO, RISING SUN, INDIANA, LEXINGTON, KENTUCKY, AND OTHER PLACES. THEY JOURNEYED BY THE "OLD STAGE LINE" TO PITTSBURG, CROSSING THE ALLEGHANYS THEN BY STEAM BOAT DOWN THE OHIO RIVER AND UP THE KENTUCKY. THE DETAILS OF THIS TRIP I CANNOT NOW RECALL WITH BUT ONE EXCEPTION. AT A CERTAIN POINT ON THEIR WAY, FATHER BECAME ANXIOUS TO BE GETTING ON AND SO TOOK PASSAGE ON THE FIRST BOAT THAT CAME ALONG, WHICH HAPPENED TO BE A SMALL IRREGULARLY RUNNING VESSEL. TOO LATE HE DISCOVERED THAT THERE WAS NOT ANOTHER FEMALE ABOARD BUT HIS DAUGHTER. HE DID NOT, HOWEVER, ANTICIPATE ANY INCONVENIENCE OR TROUBLE, BUT ABOUT MIDNIGHT A MAN DREW THE CURTAIN OF HIS BERTH ASIDE AND LOOKED AT HIM. FATHER SAID, "STRANGER, HAVE I TAKEN YOUR BERTH?" NO, SAID THE MAN, AND WALKED AWAY; BUT COMING BACK AFTER A WHILE A CONVERSTION ENSUED, HE ASKING FATHER A NUMBER OF INQUISITIVE QUESTIONS AS TO HIS BUSINESS, WHERE HE WAS GOING, ETC., WHICH FATHER UNSUSPICIOUSLY ANSWERED AND THEN ASKED HIM HIS NAME. MY NAME HE GRUFFLY REPLIED IS THAT THING WE SHARPEN RAZORS ON, WHETSTONE; AND WITH THAT HE WENT OFF AND DID NOT AGAIN RETURN. IN THE MEANTIME FATHER'S SUSPICIONS WERE AROUSED BUT THERE WAS NOTHING HE COULD DO BUT TRUST AND WATCH FOR THE MORNING. HE DID NOT KNOW BUT WHAT HE HAD FALLEN INTO A DEN OF THIEVES. GREAT WAS HIS RELIEF, WHEN MORNING CAME, TO FIND THAT NO HARM HAD COME TO THEM AND AT THEIR EARLIEST OPPORTUNITY GOT ASHORE. SOME YEARS AFTER WE READ N THE PUBLIC PRINTS OF THE ARREST OF A MAN BY THE NAME OF WHETSTONE FOR MURDER OR SOME GREVIOUS CRIME.

MANY OF THE POOR QUAKERS LEFT THE STATE, WHILE OTHERS EITHER RENOUNCED THEIR RELIGION OR BRAVED IT OUT AND REMAINED.
