Hain's Church Misc. Info
"There is a varied trip to the hill where Hain's Church peeps down into the Lebanon Valley -- The church built in 1766, which still presents above the main door a stone defaced in 1776, when the Declaration of Independence was read to the assembled congregation.  Some who heard the words of defiance to King George thought of the legend on the stone, which told of the purpose of the members 'to be loyal to the King.'  The cry was raised, 'The King must come out!'  A ladder was brought and part of the inscription was removed, and the stone was left with message incomplete, so it is today." [S1, pages 218, 219]
"In a letter dated January 14, 1739, Boehm complains of Goetschy's intrusion into his works, especially at Oley.  He suggests that a minister be stationed at Oley, who could also serve Caucusi (Hain's Church) eight miles from the center of the Oley district and muxatawny ten miles distant."  [S2 pages 76, 77
