PRINCETON — “Remember Indian Creek,” by Heinz-Dietrich Suppan tells the story of several settlers who were looking to start a new life along Indian Creek in the 1800s north of Harding.
The author will be at the Princeton Public Library, 698 E. Peru St., to talk about his book and the history behind it, at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, March 29.
Suppan spent more than two years researching the material and visited with a descendant of two sisters who were the only survivors of the Indian Creek Massacre. The book includes maps and photographs from the era, plus modern-day photographs showing artifacts. A bibliography of sources should prove useful for those wanting to do their own research.
“Remember Indian Creek” will be sold after the presentation. Suppan has taught German and history classes at a variety of schools. He now teaches at Marquette Academy and Joliet Junior College and resides with his wife, Leslie, in Ottawa.
