From “SILVER CREEK CHURCH”, an article from the National Democrat newspaper, May 22, 1885:

We see here a fallen and broken shaft. It has upon it the name of John McDanald. Several of this name are buried here. The name of Daniel McDanald and also that of his wife Elizabeth appears early upon the “Silver Creek” church roll. Daniel and John McDanald were brothers and were brother-in-laws of Mr. James Worrall Sr., he having married their sister. Daniel McDanald was the father of John and Thomas McDanald, some years ago of this county. Thomas lived some 25 or 30 years ago at Slate Cut on the farm formerly owned by Henry Rodgers but now belonging to the Belknap Cement Company.

Daniel McDanald lived on the hill farm just beyond Work’s or Green’s Mill. He sometimes preached.

John McDanald was born in 1780. He came to Indiana Territory in 1801. He settled on the farm now owned by Nathaniel Crawford. He built a log cabin on this place and cleaned off a few acres of ground; but he soon sold out and returned to Ohio. In Ohio he married and returned to Indiana Territory in 1815, having a family of six children. He lived on the farm on the Utica and Salem road, which since his son Daniel owned and now belongs to Mrs. Sullivan. John McDanald died in 1855 on the farm adjoining and above the Josiah Littell homestead. He was for many years a deacon of the Silver Creek church.
