History

Organizational History:

Coe Township in Isabella County, Michigan, was first explored by a white person, Perry H. Estee, in 1854. Later that same year, James Woolsey, Daniel Brickley, John Steward, and their families became the first white settlers in the area. The township was organized in 1855 and named for Lieutenant Governor George A. Coe. William P. Bowen served as its first supervisor. Storekeeper Archibald Leonard became its first postmaster on August 17, 1891. That particular post office operated until Dec. 14, 1904. (This information is from Michigan Place Names.)
