The Shaker manifesto, Volumes 8-9 By George Albert Lomas, Henry Clay Blinn
Her work, her People, and their Critics.
Where the Shaker Church at Mt. Lebanon now stands, there was once a building of comfortable proportions possessed by George Darrow. To this house Mother Ann went for the purpose of having a Shaker meeting on the morrow. Scarcely had the day dawned, when a mob began to collect, surrounding the house, and commenced a terrible scene of persecution. The mob consisted of two companies, having eatfh a captain. Their first acts were to seize George Darrow and David Meacham and hustled them off to a Squire Grant, under the false charge that they had committed some grave ofTense. Then, the balance of the mob, forced their way into the three doors of the house, and as the Chronicler says: "They seized the brethren one after another, and dragged them out with the most savage violence. Richard Spier was thrown out of a high back door three times. Some were drawn out by the hair of their heads; some were taken by four or five1 persons, one at each arm and leg, and pitched head-foremost into a deep mud pud<dle; while many had their clothes badly torn."
Six Darrow children:
