TURKEY CREEK, INDIANA
"Saints Peter and Paul's Church, of Turkey Creek, was attended as a station as early as 1847 -- by Rev. A. Carius, and from 1850 by Holy Cross Fathers, Cointet, Voors, and Schilling -- from Notre Dame, St. Joseph county, who regularly paid their visits until 1857. Prior to 1862 the Congregation worshipped in a log building."
-- Blanchard, Vol. I, p. 459.
(Bishop Luers to Sorin: 1858) "I am really glad to hear that you are going to send a Brother to Turkey Creek to teach school there. I wish there was a school in every place able to support one, else the children will be lost."
