This Day In History: 1873-07-23
Local scandal has it that the Pastor of the Ramapo Reformed Church, the Rev. Mr. George McGee stole a kiss from a local school teacher when he was showing her some pictures. She is supposed to have complained to her parents and her father has made strong threats against the offender.
When Rev. Mr. McGee heard there was a warrant for his arrest, he voluntarily appeared before “The Squire” (Judge Garrison? BD 11/14/1873) and gave bail to answer the charge of “improper liberties with a young lady. The matter is the town talk and much scandal is afloat on the subject.”
