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
