We just recently returned from Bois Blank back to Ashtabula, Ohio. Had an amazing time at Cook's Cottage, met some great people, had an AWESOME time at the Tavern...but I paid for it the next day! The bonfires, the family bonding time...maybe too much....! Smile

Thanks to Mike White Sr. for going with us on the hunt of my Grandma's homestead and letting other people know the truth about John Bible! Very Happy It was amazing to see my Grandma truck it through the woods and see her smile and tell stories...same thing on Mackinac Island. The best part was she met up again with an old friend after 80+ years, Ray Plott (?) I just wish we would be able to have signs up on Culver Road and Lake Culver...and that her mom had a headstone on Mackinac Island. Someday....!

I hope to be there next Summer and to stay longer and hopefully land a job on Mackinac...it'd be great to find out more of my Grandma's roots!!

Keep in touch, Islanders!

Please share the stories about John Bible. He may have become too much of a legend. It can't hurt to tell now.

Give the names of your Great greandparents that lived on BBI. What did they do for a living, etc.

John Bible totally burnt my Grandma's house down! And their boat dock! And killed their dog! He was nuts!! Totally an arsonist....maybe a little psychotic....we think. Looking back on it now, they way his mindset was....totally should have been on anitdepressants and bipolar meds. He was named the Island ahh....not fire chief but something...like a warden But he was always burning stuff down of my families! I have so many pic from the trip I want to put up--like the way old, rusted gas can right next to where my Grammas house used to be, and an old coffee pot....! John Bible is over looked...for real!!

OH I just realized it was you, Mike hah!! WOW....I am observant! I think my brain is still on vacation as I sit here instead of gettign ready for work!! TONS of files to put away when I get there ugh!

My Grandma is Madeline (Simon) Culver. Her brothers: Tom, Wilford, Raymond and sister Emily....and I think I am forgetting some....

As far as g-grandparents, not sure what their names were. Gramma can't remember her mom's, some days she does. I know her dad's but it is slipping my mind right now.

I will have to write more later...so I dont get fired haha! Be back on here soon!!
