Island Stories
By Marion Morse Davis (Reprints from articles in Michigan History Magazine 1926, 1927 and 1928.)

She got her material from a manuscript of Melissa Rice Langdon, about "experiences on Beaver Island 1848" They came from Mackinac, landed at the Head near the Lighthouse where they met his brother from Wisconsin already there with his wife and baby. Not far from the Lighthouse they Rice brothers both built log cabins and fished. Van Allen was Light Keeper. One night when they were having supper at the lighthouse came a knock at the door. It was Samuel Bennett with a bloody hand in a sling. Tom had been shot. He had come here for refuge. The next morning he left on the Twin Brothers for Mackinac. When "Lissa" wants to go to Wisconsin to meet an uncle, she goes "Mrs. Cable's at the harbor" (this must be Cable's Bay) but she changes her mind and stays. A few days later Rice and his hired man are alarmed by Mormons prowling around there fish house where a large quantity of fish awaited the arrival of the Twin Brothers" to collect them. -End of Manuscript

The Bennett killing took place in 1851
