Remember Indian Creek March 29

On Thursday, March 29 at 6:30 p.m. Heinz-Dietrich Suppan will give a presentation on his book, “Remember Indian Creek” which  tells the story of several settlers who were looking to start a new life along Indian Creek in the 1800’s.

Suppan spent over 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 that show 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. Heinz Suppan has taught German and a history classes at a variety of schools. He currently teaches at Marquette Academy and Joliet Junior College and resides with his wife Leslie in Ottawa.
