Most of the other persons who are involved in the story, and the facts about them, are either to be found in historical records and accounts or are plausible deductions. The story is based in part on the historical facts presented in ‘Indians, Sawmills, and Danes – The Early History of the Flat River Area of Michigan,’ by Robertson M. Augustine. The events and dates are of the period of the history of Michigan from the last quarter of the 18th century to the middle of the 19th century.” No writing, highlighting, names, or other marks.
