The earliest record found for William Mack is his name on a petition to the "Justices of the Court of General Quarter Sessions of the Peace, held at Easton, for the county of Northampton, the 18th of June 1755". The petition was from local protestants complaining that the permits to operate public houses (taverns) in Easton were unfairly being granted only to Catholics.
William Mack signed this petition, as well as Joseph Brader, John Jones, & others. This frontier in Pennsylvania, where Gnadenhutten was located, was not fully secured for peace until after Revolutionary War hostilities ceased, over 25 years later.
