Just that I am trying to restore my house at
419 S. Main ; its a challenge the house dates back
past the 1900 census when I found the one owner listed on the census; making it older than 114 years old. It belonged to Laura Barnshiel (who
provided land for an addition to the town of Culver - not sure how that goes as yet but assumed she owned it when the addition was dedicated) she solid
it to David Hawk whose family owned all the land on the west side of now Main st. to new St Rd 17 and down to 19th Rd. (the lower end of Hawk Lake)
who sold it to Ezra Hawkins (a business man, mail carrier) who's estate sold it to David B. Burns.
The set-up of this search Engine is important in that - totals of content or the site to date by the "properties list"
provided for a folder on my computer.

Transformation has been compleed to the "Blue" page. As I went along I tried to eliminate double images creating one source folder
for them to work from as to work across a variety of folders and pages; creating single folder system in order have everything up-front
so to speak. - - I worked down each indiviidual folder - breaking out and down into more folders, more creating new pages if
need be; creating a folder for each cottage and business address (sometimes past and present both); this still is an on going
The "Search Tab" tho for awhile it will not be accessible on all pages until full site transformation is made; I have found you can
have it to you favorites - and it goes there - but you will have to make sure to change the label from 'Freefind' to something
such as Lake Maxinkuckee search'. I am using it and it works - and it does find what your are seeking for most generally
This version will provided an index , what's new, and a sitemap as well for the site if you are interested; this
will allow a VERY LAZY method of providing a full fledge up-to-date site map of all pages on the website. Besides
allowing you to remain on the site page underneath a "new window".
I have beeen asked "How do I contact?" go to top click on "Contact" and the contact tab will pop-up with
I have been asked several times over the years "Are you adding to the site?" - YES quips, tidbits; maybe new pages
or splitting pages; updating; moving things around out into single folders. Site is constantly changing in some manner
it may not be noticeable now that transformation is complete. Some pages content wise may not have changes others
You will find updates etc under the search engine's "What's New" link. - this will bring up front pages that have
been changed/upadated or new ones added; or splits made from other pages into new ones.
A VERY BIG THANK YOU goes out to Jackson "Jerry" Hazlewood for sending deeds, a plat map and other miscelleanous
information it has added greatly to the site and some big updates are coming because of this information.
Thanks to those such as Marcia Adams, Agnes Bramfeld, and Jeff Kenney who have given me words of priase
and encouragement on the site when I have seen them in places in Culver - - it was much needed, appreciated
and gives me the encouragement to go on with the site.

1953 was the first year that the lake directories were issued and gave a listing of
all lake residents (or houses).
This was my "FIRST" working outline of the site along with listings from Lake Directories
that were in the Marshall County Historical Society; there were but a few scattered issues
from 1953-September 1990 when I started on this project.
From these I have worked backwards and forwards with what I could find; to trying and make
a completelisting of the cottages and lake parcels and create a history for each.
The label as "non lakefront" is not meant to offend anyone - nor is it meant to be taken
that it does not have lake access it could very well have, I have not deleved into that
aspect unless it has been note din a descrption of the property as having a legal access to
the lake - the only meaning intended is that the house/cottage and or property is NOT
located on the shores of Lake Maxinkuckee aka "lake side" of the road - or thus directly
connected to the Lake Maxinkuckee it means only that there is a road and/or alley between
it and the lake.
Nothing within is set in "STONE" and everything is subject to change when documentation
is found - through deeds, newspaper articles. etc. This is an ever changing prooject
and site as new material surfaces. It is a never ending project that I will never see
completed in my lifetime.

this is especially labeled for
urgent attention the Subject line is filled in for troubleshooting problems you find BUT please be kind enough to

PLEASE I will gladly grin and bear and and all critism - :-)
Also since 2012 there has been alot of revamping, eliminating double images, moving folders to single ones instead of nested into others- to
make hopefully instant access to material thats been hidden - also to aide in research and in preparing the site for the future when it will be
passed on to another... it is hoping by simplifing into into mainly single folders it will not be to overwhelming for the person who will inherit it
and that they will continue the tradition I have started in preservation of both the history and genealogy of Lake Maxinkuckee.
is lost its only re-located... lost within the site only awaiting to found again alson there is plenty of back-ups - with
lot of new indexes hopely to enable you to manuver around easier - also in place has been an expanded search engine which I have even
found very useful.
