Rev. Mc Lean and they united their religious interests under the banner of Associate Presbyterianism.  The call was made out in the fall of 1801 and was carried on horseback to a meeting of presbytery, where it was accepted on New Year's day, 1802.  The bounds of the charge at this time included Shenango, Sandy and Salem - now Greenville.  The following interesting paper urging the call was presented to the presbytery.

"We the undersigned subscribers, members of Shenango and Sandy      

congregations, pray that this 

reverend presbytery would sustain that call and put it into the hands of that candidate for whom it was brought forward, and adopt every legal measure for hastening his settlement among us as our case needs the greatest attention.  The enemies of Christ's cross are numerous in the place where God, in His Prudence, has cast our lot.  And we are deprived of what we consider a pure dispensation of Gospel ordinances, dispersed among us in a stated way, all which we conceive very distressing to each who desire to follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth.

 

"The sum we engage to pay annually for the labors of Rev. Daniel McLean is one hundred and thirty-five pounds, Pennsylvania currency, as witness our hands this 28th day of December in the year of our Lord, one thousand eighth hundred one."
