Ethel Vinnedge's "History" continued in the July 10, 1952, Lowell Tribune on page 1, columns 3-4 and section 2, page 2, columns 1-5: NOTE:
Some, but not all, of the names of the 1800's veterans listed in this essay are found on the 1905 Three Creeks Monument on Commercial Street. This essay lists a Robert L. Fuller who died in 1863; the monument show a Robert W. Fuller, who died Aug. 1, 1863. There is a possibility that there may have been an error, either on the monument or in the newspaper, and these two names actually indicate one and the same man.

[* NOTE -- Town Historian Richard Schmal adds this note of explanation: "Whoever wrote that ("Creston. Formerly West Point, Settled in 1836") was mixed up a bit. I can understand why. Pioneer McCarty settled in the Creston area but planned the town of West Point before Lake County was a county. His town would have been near the corner of Morse Street and 133rd Ave at Cedar Lake -- often called "Coleman's Corner" -- about two miles north of Creston. The Creston area was formerly Tinkerville. West Point was only on paper. The article could be very confusing to some.]
