While Daniel attends the Virginia legislature in Williamsburg as Kentucky's representative, Becky and Israel decide to visit the house she recently inherited from an uncle on nearby Oyster Cove. The Boones discovers that the building, even though it was supposed to have a tenant, is vacant. Investigating further Becky discovers a secret passage that leads to a cave under the house that's being used by smugglers. Before she can return to Williamsburg to report the illegal activities going on her property, the smugglers capture Becky and her son and prepare them for a watery grave. Daniel tracks his wife and son to the old house and meets with an old salt who tries to convince that the banging noises coming from beneath the house are nothing but the sounds of a discontented ghost.

According to the story MacGregor (Peter Crowcroft)said "I do hereby bequeath my house at Oyster Bay". In fact, however, Oyster Bay Virginia is 130 miles from Colonial Williamsburg and requires crossing the York River to get there which is a span of well in excess of 10 miles at almost any given point. And yet it's only a buggy ride of what appears to be a couple of hours at best for Rebecca and Israel as well as Daniel and they don't have cross any river. See more
