A deep and lasting friendship between Johann (2) and the indian Chief Tuccamirgan developed over the years. The childless wife of the Chief often took care of the Kase children, who were as comfortable at the Indian camp as they were in their own homestead. Their log cabin home was located where the current Case/Davis/Dvoor house stands today on the Route 12 circle in Flemington.
