Seeds of Evil
Otto Markhardt, and his wife, Constance and son, WIlly, according to civil records, moved to Silent Waters from Atlanta, around 1863 or 1864. There they constructed the home now known as the Markhardt Estate.
Apparently, Markhardt was a member of the notorious Tannhauser Bruderschaft and may have been involved in an occult plot to bring down the North during the American Civil War, by attempting to open up the membrane that separates the world of humanity from the Outer Black. He was stopped and killed by the Ancestors.
