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

Jonathan Mow and William Mow  

By Daniel Mc Daniel in "An Early History of Lake Maxinkuckee" (1908):

    "The Only one of the caravan who settled on the lake was Eleazer Thompson who built a log cabin a year or two later where the residence of Mrs. H. H. Culver is now located on the northeast shore. The old cabin still stands just north of the Culver residence, but has been remodeled, losing thereby some of its primitive beauty. Mr. Thompson was, therefore, the first white settler to take up permenant residence on the banks of the lake. He died a few years later, and the property has changed hands many times since then.

    The elder Adam Mow lived there in the early forties [sic], rearing a large family of boys and girls who are well remembered by the surviviors of that early period in the history of the lake.

On 10 April 1849 a Jonathan Mow was issued a land patent certificate # 17379 [link photo only] for SE1/4 of SE1/4 Section 14 (corssed out T32R1E) 2nd Principal Median.
