This is a very nice web site. I thought I would add some insight to the history of Seul Choix Point Lighthouse. The keeper that is supposibly haunting the lighthouse was a sailing captain from Bristol England. He came to Michigan through Norfolk Ontario back in the 1870's. He was a keeper at Skillagalee and Waugoshance Shoal before he ended up at Seul Choix. His birth name is John Joseph Willy Townshend, born 1847. He married twice and had 3 Children. His son Ivan Townshend worked as the assistant there and at Sheboygan's lighthouse. I know this because these are my great and g-g grandfathers. Again great site, keep up the good work!!!
