7. Story. 2092 A well known New Garden Friend was Jacob Lindley, who traveled widely in the ministry throughout the Yearly Meeting. He and Joshue Sharpless visited many Indian reservations because they had great concern for the natives, and felt the Indians had been mistreated by the whites. Jacob was a big man with a booming voice that was filled with conviction as he explained his religious beliefs. Once, caught in a heavy storm, he sought refuge under the Meeting House sheds. His thoughts wandered to the many fine sermons preached by those in the nearby graveyeard. Overcome by emotion, he strated to eulogize these Friends. A man driving by heard this powerful voice apparently coming from the graveyard, became panic stricken and whipping his horse furiously rode off. Jacob, noting the man's panic and beating of his horse, called out to him. That only terrified the man more and he was observed miles away still racing his horse.

8. Story. 2093 One of the more interesting Quaker narratives is that of Jacob Lindley, also of New Garden Meeting. This narrative, written by William Townsend, was printed in the 1890s. Lindley was a minister among Friends and had a station on the Underground Railroad. (the book cited is "Jacob Lindley", published in Philadelphia by Friends Book Store).
