Lake Maxinkuckee Its Intrigue History & Genealogy Culver, Marshall, Indiana

William Leander Warner  



The quote from the Thomas Bigley Biographical sketch in speaking of Aaron Benedict is:

He also owned considerable acreage north of the lake along Aubbenaubbee Bay, 83 acres along the lake front and 200 acres thence north. He built a home approximately a half mile from the lake and planted pine trees around it. He never lived there, but rented it to his daughter, Augusta, and husband William WARNER and family. Later the house burned but the pine trees stand to this day; the site is historically known as the Pine Tree House. His land holdings were later acquired by Henry H. CULVER for the Culver Military Academy.


and another quip under the Wayne Flagg biographical sketch found in the same book [History of Marshall County Indiana Sesquicentennial 1836 - 1986 -,Taylor Publishing Co., 1986, Publication # 357 of 1422, Marshall County Historical Society pg 169] that gives the location of this farmhouse is:
