Among the few remaining dwellers on Ox Bow Prairie is Abner Boyle, son of David Boyle, who came to the country in 1829, and with his sons built a cabin and raised twenty acres of corn, yielding fifty and sixty bushels to the acre. This they got ground at the mills on the Mackinaw River, fifty miles away, and with a plentiful supply of venison, made a comfortable "live" of it through the winter.

Mr. Boyle's cabin was a model of simplicity, being simply a pen of loosely laid up logs covered with shakes. The spaces between the logs never having been "chinked" windows were not required, and as cooking was done out of doors, neither fire-place or chinmney were needed. In 1830 he was commissioned post master by Gen. Jackson, and the office named Ox Bow; but people had little time to write letters in those times, and it cost twenty-five centes to get a letter from the East, so that commissions were not sufficient to pay for the labor of opening and examining the mails, and he resigned.
