Aubeenaubbee Creek  



Aubbeenaubbee Creek is not designated by name on the early plat maps of 1835, 1836/7, 1872, 1876 and the plat maps of 1880, 1881, 1898, 1908 and 1922 do not indicate any creek in the vicinty why is unknown. 1908, or 1922 Why it is not known...

Its is location is between to cottages on the east side 1680 East Shore drive on the north and 1746 East shore on the south.


and directly to the East it enters and and meanders on the property known as the Maxinkuckee Golf Course.


An aerial view of today shows the great expanse of the creek and its tributary.


Its location is noted on the origiinal Survey map for Union Township, date of survey Mar 1834 certified Feb 27, 1835


it is noted on the plat map of 1836-1837 made sometime after the first orignal survey and after the Treaty that drove the Indians off the Reservation lands surrounding lake Maxinkuckee in August 1837 ast it shows the lands not platted into Lots to be sold


By the 1872 plat may the Creek is mainly on VanShoiak land and entering the lake on Bartholmew land; and mering into two crreks/ditched on the W. Curtis property further to the southeast.


the area on the 1876 plat map


The 1900 biological survey map shows the creek with the name "Aubeenaubee" attached to it.


Again none of the plat maps between 1925 and until the 1995-96 and then the creek re-appears on the plat map and again no name is attached to it.


For some reason Aubbeenaubbee Creek seems to be refered to as Curtiss Ditch in a broad sense of term; by this map it lays further east and Aubbeenaubbee Creek drains into it.
