"Log Cabins in Perry County, Indiana"


The Shubael Little Pioneer Village...
Perry County, Indiana
Just North of Rocky Point

Becky & I had a delightful 4 hours visiting these reconstructed log cabins built by some Perry County pioneers. There are currently four cabins and one outhouse that were dismantled and moved to the Chuck Poehlein farm and rebuilt in his woods. They have a Rogier Oven and the Ramsey Shelter, as well. They have a donation of a stone building from Rockport and the George Little cabin has been dismantled and transported to the woods for assembly. Many of them are Becky's birth family ancestors. This first cabin was last used by the Charles Wesley Hinton family, the wife being Mary Ann Carter (daughter of Homer Hull Carter). The original owner and builder of this cabin was William Wilberton Carter(1833-1895)... Becky's Great, Great Grandfather. William & Homer were brothers and believed to be the sons of Mason Carter.

Could you tell me more about where these are located? William Carter was my great great grandfather, his daughter Lucinda being my great grandmother. I would love to see these in person

I'm very interested in knowing more about these cabins and seeing them. William Wilberton Carter was my great great grandfather, his daughter Lucinda was my great grandmother. If you have any other ancestry or genealogy information about this line I would also be interested in hearing more
