'C,"-T., C |Ix writing a history of this now populous and thriving County, it is not expected that mention can be made of all that has transpired which is really worthy of commendation. Furthermore, the County Records having been burned, it is almost impossible to get the exact data of the organization and early history of the County. Having in great measure to depend upon the memory of old settlers, we have found in many cases a conflict of opinion, in which contingency we have been guided by that which we judged to be the most reliable. The early settlers who left their New York and New England homes to hew their way through the forests of Michigan and map out a country for future generations, have gone to their resting-place, and need no monument to mark or historian to inscribe their heroic deeds. Empty-handed and alone they encountered the trials incident to the settlement and development of a country inhabited by wild beasts and roaming bands of Indians, that their sons and daughters might luxuriate in the rich fruit of that early planting. Desire and expectation ripened through years of suffering into hope, and as one by one they passed the portals of eternity, the land they left lay smiling in rich and fertile fields. A new generation has risen, who cherish in holy memories the fathers and mothers who now sleep in honored graves. The old pioneers! peace to their ashes! Michigan once formed one of the principal branches in the old Northwestern Territorial Tree of the United States, to which the Norwegians and Danes clung by right of discovery, and who ceded it to the State of Virginia, from which commonwealth it came into the possession of the United States in 1805. In 1830 it was one vast wilderness; the whole number of inhabitants being less than 30,000. In 1836 it was admitted into the Union. According to the census of 1870, the 'population was 1,185,000, with 97 organized counties. Inexhaustible mountains of iron ore, and beds of copper and silver, are of untold wealth to the State, while the central and southern portions abound in fruit and cereals. The rich Valley of the Raisin constitutes a great storehouse, receiving its deposits from the lake regions, and sending back its fruits to the denuded rocks. The history of the early settlers of Lenawee County will be found in the biographical sketches of this work,-space only being given here to those whose history is interwoven with that of the County. Lenawee County was laid out in 1822, and attached to Monroe. Musgrove Evans, a native of Pennsylvania, and a member of the Society of Friends, in company with his wife and five children, General J. W. Brown, his brother-inlaw, E. F. Blood*, Turner Stetson, Nathan Rathbone, and Peter Lowry, chartered the famous schooner " Erie," which subsequently went over the Falls of Niagara, and arrived in Detroit in April, 1824. There the mien left their families, and, having chartered a Frenchman and pony to carry their baggage, took an Indian trail to Ypsilanti, thence to Saline, and still on, until they reached the river Raisin, some little distance above where noqr stands the village of Clinton. Here they discharged their voyageuer, and, taking their provisions Upon their backs, marched to Evans's Creek, which they descended to the point of land on which 1s Globe Mill" now stands; here they went into camp, and esxtlored the surrounding country. Mr. Evans entered the lands adjacent to the junction of Evans's Creek and the river Raisin, and moved immediately upon the land-office at Monroe. There he met a Mr. Wing, whereupon M3essrs. lVing, Evans, and Brown entered into a co-partnership and took up the north half of Section 34. The adjacent lands were soon entered by adventurers, and steps were taken to secure the County-seat. It was finally located at Tecumseh by the Legislature, on the last of June, 1824. In the same month Mr. Evans left Monroe for Tecumseh, where be built a log house, twenty feet square, without any floor, and roofed it with bark peeled from elm trees. Mrs. Evans, like other heroines of her day, used the baking-kettle and the old-fashioned fireplace minus the chitnney. During the winter of 1824-5 this house furnished shelter for sixteen souls. During tile following sumuer Mr. Evans laid out the plot of the village of Tecumseh. The first frame house in Lenawee County was erected -by Joseph W. Brown, in the summer of 1825; it was the first and only public house in the Territory west of Monrcoe. The same year a Mr. Knaggs built a store, which proved of great value to the settlers. In 1826 Mr. Evans built a house which accommodated his family and travelers; ague shook the very walls, and the scorching fever assailed its inmates, yet the house still stands in honor of those who sheltered and cared for the unfortunate. In 1824 Messrs. Wing, Evans, and Brown threw a dam across the Raisin; as the waters rose along its banks, machinery for a saw-mill was put in order, the gates opened, the first saw-log in Lenawee County was rolled on, and business commenced in earnest. Time wore on; the population increased; seed-time and harvest came. On the 4th of July, 1825, while loud cannon were reminding the New England States of the dying requiem of British misrule and tyranny, the first grist was being ground in Lenawee County; this grist belonged to MrI. Osborn, and the mill to Wing, Evans a Co. Mrs. Evans made cake from this flour, some one else furnished the whisky, and thus was provided the first Fourth of July feast in Lenawee. Abs Spafford was a genius in his wa'y: he constructed a saw-mill and blacks A"f 2 combied, and a grist-mill adjoining, in a beautiful little valley near x 'e eon trived to keep all these in operation at the same time, and that wilt eB except hio signal bells. This remarkable man electrified the comm'*4 fu about eight years, and then moved to Illinois. The TeeIM00h grist-mill *as completed in 1832, was built by Wting, Evans, and Brown, ani four run of stone. It was burned in 1867. " Ezra F'. Blood, who settled in Lepawee in 184, and who now residles on Section 24, Tecumseh Townships is the. oldest living settler in the County. Sc — -- - - -.- - -- -.-.... —. — ~ --- — ~ --- — But while Mr. ~vsns-anddhis followers were putting shoulder to the car of progress in Tecumseh and vicinity, other men in other localities were not idle. On the 7th of September, 1825, Addison J. Comstock purchased of the United States four hundred and eighty acres of land, on which the city of Adrian now stands. I He returned to New York, wIas married to Miss Sarah L. Dean February 14,1826, and the same spring returned with his wife and stopped at the valley until he could erect a log house, which now stands on the bank of the river. He also built a house for his hired man, Mr. Gifford, whose wife was the first female resident of Adrian. Mr. Comstock built a saw-mill in 1826. November 22, 1826, the County was detached from Monroe. divided into two towns, Tecumseh and Logan, and given a civil jurisdiction. J. W. Brown was appointed Chief Justice; S. Blanchard was Brown's successor. On the 28th of May, 1827, the following persons were elected for Township officers of Locan: Elias Dennis, Moderator; A. J. Comstock, Town Clerk; Darius Comstock, Supervisor; Noah Norton, Warner Eylswortb, and Cornelius A. Stout, Comtis~sioners of Highways; Patrick Hamilton and Abram West, Overseers of the Poor. We herewith give the legislative enactment organizing Lenawee County: "An Act to orgacnize the-Coultty of Lenvtleee, appproved December 20, 1826. " Sec. 1. Be it enacted by the Legislative Council of the Territory of Michigan, that the County of Lenawee shall be organized from and after the taking effect of this Act, and the inhabitants thereof entitled to all the rights and privileges to which by law the inhabitants of the other counties of this territory are entitled. SEC. 2. That the County Court of the County of Lenawee shall be held on the first Monday of June and the first Monday of January in each year. | SEc. 3. That all suits, prosecutions, and other matters now depending before the County Court of Monroe County, or before any justice of the peace of said County of Monroe, shall be prosecuted to final judgment and execution; and all taxes heretofore levied and now due shall be collected in the same manner as though the said County of Lenawee had not been organized.,"Sac. 4. That all the country within this territory to which the Indian title Was extinguished at the treaty of Chicago shill be attached to and compose a part of the County of Lenawee. 'SEC. 5. That this Act shall take effect and be in force fron and after the thirty-first day of December, one thousand eight hundred and twenty-six.` The first deed recorded in Lenawee County was Imade by John S. Schnall and his wife Catherine, to Amnmon Sperry, January 31, 1827, and recorded February 1, 1827, comprising lands in the southwest quarter of Section 6, town 5, range 4, east. Htillsdale County was laid out and attached to Lenawee in 1829, but detached in 1835. The first child born-in Adrian was Leander Comstock, son of Addison J. nd Sarah L. Comstock, born August 9, 1827. In October of this year, James Whitney purchased four hundred acres of land west of the river. March 31, 1828, A. J. Comstock laid out and recorded the original plot of the village of Adrian, which t then contained forty-nine village lots, commencing near the river and running east as far as lot 34, on which William A. Whitney, Esq., now resides. The Fourth of July was formally celebrated for the first time in 1828, A. J. Comnstock reading the Declaration and Dr. Ormsby delivering the oration. Dinner was served at the house of Mlar. Comstock. From thirty to forty persons were present, and if the theory be true that" nothing is lost," the music of that day must still echo through the valleys and over the hills of Lenawee. In 1828 the first schoolhouse in the County was built at Adrian. In 1829 Mr. Comstock and his fatherin-law. Isaac Dean, built the "1 Redl Mill." Prior to this, settlers had to go to Tecumseh, Saline, or Monroe to get their grists ground. A post-office was established this year, with Mr. Comstock as postmaster. In the emewte between the Territory of Michigan and the State of Ohio regarding their boundary line, and known in local annals as the "Toledo War," H. N. Baldwin (then Deputy Sheriff of Lenawee County) and other pioneers of this County took an active part. The result of the controversy was that Michigan, in exchange for the territory she claimed on the south, received the large district in the north on Lake Superior, then chiefly noted for Indians and furs, but now the worldrenowned copper regions. In November, 1829, Governor Lewis Cass and General Charles Larnerd came to Tecumseh, escorted by Dr. M. A. Patterson, in order to organize the militia of the County and form it into a regiment. J. W. Brown was commissioned Colonel of the Eighth Regiment, and took an active part in the Black Hawk War. In 1S83 R. W. Ingalls commenced the publication of the Lenatwoee Repuzblican and Adrian Gazette (afterwards known as the Watchtolcer). This, without doubt, was the pioneer newspaper of the County, though, if the annals of Tecumseh be correct, the Tectmseh Democrat, printed by Beriah Brown, was not many days behind its Adrian rival. The County-seat being first established at Tecumseh was the cause of much strife between the people of that place and those of Adrian. It was removed to Adrian in 1835. In 1433 an act was obtained to construct a railroad from Toledo to Lake Michigan, through Adrian. It was so far completed in 1836 that a horse-car was put upon it, but it had to be run without iron. This vffden railroad was the first one west of Albany, and the only railroad in the country, except the one fron Albany to Schenectady. It was built without capital, except as men worked out their subscription,-furnishing also materials and provisions. This enterprise, small as it may now appear, was what awoke the entire Northwest to this system of improvement; andl the people of Lenawee owe much to the indomitable energy of A. J. Comstck for initiating and pushing forward this great work to its final completion. The County has now completed and projected the following RAILROADS. The Lake Shore and Michigan Southern Railroad ('~Main Line"). Direct communication east and west with Toledo and Chicago. The Lake Shore and Michigan Southern Rilroad (" Detroit Division"). Running to Monroe and Detroit. The Lake Shore and Michigan Southern Railroad ("Jackson Branch"). To Jackson; there connecting with lines to Lansing, Saginnw, etc. The above roads are all in full operation, affording direct communication to all points of the compass. There are also the following proposed lines: The Adrian and Detroit and Adlrian and State Line Railroads. These are parts of connecting lines between the Gxrawnd,.Trunk Junction and Kokomo, and when completed will (with the Grand Trunk Railway and the line from Jackson) form an unbroken line from the seaboard to the Mississippi. The road from Kokomo to brand Trunk Junction is organized, and some thirty miles of the road east from Adrian graded and partially bridged. The Canada Southern Railroad runs about 5J miles south of Adrian. It is now contemplated to build a branch from Adrian to intersect this line. With its completed and projected rouds, the Counity-seat of Ljenawee will in a short time becoine a railroad centre of great importance, having three competing lines of througph trunk roads. SOIL, CLIMATE, AND SCENERY. It is also fortunate for the County that, with all these facilities for interoommunication, it is not in want of natural advantages in soil, climate, or scenery. A rich sandy loam, carpeted with green grass or golden grain, where the dairyman'8 cow, with sleek sides and overflowing udder, responds to the call of her keeper: where the sharp sickle clatters through the waving fields, and where magnificent forests furnish delightful shade for summer's heat and fuel for winter' cold, all combine to make it a "land of promise." Delightful lakes in the northwestern portion of the County furnish her sons and daughters with llsny an excuse to while away the happy hours in gliding o'er their silvery waters. Here, too, in her multitude of happy homes, amid beauteous surroundings, the honeymoon of life and the decline of old age are laden,-the one with real present joy, the other with memories of other days made sacred by the touch of friendship and love. POPULATION AND NATIVITY Relying for data upon the census returns of 1870, the population of Lenawee County numbers 45.595, consisting mainly of citizens born in the State of Michig;ln; a large preponderance of the remainder came from New York and Ohio. Of foreigners, the German element predominates (1657), with about equal numbers of English (1272) and Irish (1344). Nearly 800 claim nativity in the British possessions, 48 in Switzerland, 27 in Holland, 10 in Bohemia, 11 in Sweden,and Denmark, while 43 Frenchmen politely move among the giants of old Lenawee. All are industrious, being chiefly occupied in the cultivation of the soil. The population of the County for the last four decades shows the following healthy increase: 1830J, lY491; 1S8O, 17,889;j 1850, 26,372; 1860, 38,112; 1870, 45,595. AGRICULTURAL AND CIVIL STATISPCS. Lenawce County embraces 248,751 acres of improved land, the value of which (with farming implements) is set down at $20,439,365,beside live stock valued at $2,71S,:386. Her productions aggregate $4,504,164; and in 1870 the yield of wheat was 659,556 bushels. Lenawee ranks second only to Oakland County in corn and butter, and to St. Clair County only in cheese, while it stands third in the State in the items of hay and wool. the true value of real estate in 1870 was $32,961,867, and there was no County indebtedness. Under the new apportionment, Lenawee County is in the 2d Congressional District, comprises the 6th Senatorial District, and embraces four Representative Districts, as follows, viz.: 1st, the towns of Adrian, Raisin, Ridgeway, Macon, Tecumnseh, Clinton, and Franklin; 2d, Cambridge, Woodstock, Rollin, Rome, Hudson, and Dover; 3d, Medina, Seneca, Fairfield, Ogden, Riga, Blissfield and Deerfield; 4th, Madison, Palmyra, and the city of Adrian. It is also in the 1st Judicial Circuit. Its representation (1873) in the State Legislature is as follows: In the House by J. Watson, Legrand J. Smith, Arthur D. G}ilmore, and Charles M. Crosswell; and in the Senate by Charles E- Mickley. The names of the County officers, as well as the supervisors of the several towns, will be found in the tabular matter appended hereto. CHURCHES AND CHURCH BUILDINGS. Nearly every religious persuasion is represented. In an early day the state of society prevented organization into sects,-all met in some convenient place for devotion, without regard to denomination. Ministers were few; and the entire congregation assisted in the simplest forms of worship.- Men worshiped GoD in those days, and, whether beneath the stately elm or in the log hut, perhaps with much greater sincerity than we usually see manifested to-day in our stately edifices. The Rev. Noah M. Well* of Detroit, preached the first sermon On Loensee County, in the summer of 1825, at Tecumseh; and, what is remar-able, every adult person in the settlement was present except one,-a woman conK eAi t fber bed by sickness. In 1832 the Presbyterian Society built the Aft, a I. Vhil *3tBn l:;=, w i:;f f - - -

Page  11 i I I I - - - Adrian. On the 10th of October, 1833, the corner-stone of the Protestant Episcopal Church (known as St. Peter's) was laid at Tecumseh. The first church in Clinton was built by the Presbyterians in 1835, and Rev. E. N. Nichols was its first permanent pastor. In the southern part of the County religious influences were at work and organizations effected at an early day. The Methodists there, as elsewhere, were pioneers in that direction. On Sunday, November 15,1835, Rev. E. Warner, from Lewiston, New York? preached in Noah Cressy's log house, and organized a class, with Lorenzo L. Brown as leader, to whom he preached regularly, and also traveled largely through the surrounding country. It is a tradition of the early settlers that John Scotford and Alien Staples, on their way to Conference in 183fi, came through the Bean Creek country, and preached to the settlers as they traveled; and, as a consequence of their report at Conference, Bean Creek Mission was organized. If there is no mistake in the tradition they were then traveling as local preachers, for at that very session, 183S6, Alien Staples was received on trial and received an appointment, but John Scotford was not received on trial until the next year. But whether as a result of a report by them or not, Bean Creek Mission was formed at that session of the Conference, and Lorenzo Davis appointed Missionary. Its boundaries are not defined, but something of an idea of the field may be formed by looking at its surroundings. Tecumseh was the nearest appointment on the east, Coldwater on the west, Spring Arbor on the north, and on the south it had no boundary-the Missionary traveled through Medina to Morenci, and across the border into Ohio. It was a pretty extensive territory for one man to travel over, and that almost an unbroken wilderness. It does not appear where the mission headquarters was, but no doubt it was in the saddle; the village of Lanesville had scarcely began to be. He had one ap. pointment at Ames's Corners, then called Keene, and another in the Brown settlement. At the latter place the preaching was alternately at the houses of Father Elisha Brown, Noah Cressey, and Michael Dillon. Mr. Dillon was then a coimunicant of the Church of Rome, but his wife was a Methodist, and he opened his house for Methodist preaching. Mr. Davis served his large mission as well as its extent permitted, and at the Conference of 1837 was succeeded by John Scotford and Alien Staples. Mr. Staples had been received the year previous from the Adrian appointment of the Tecumseh Circuit, and appointed to Salem. Mr. Scotford was received on trial at this Conference (1837), and, although a year the junior of Mr. Staples, was placed in charge of the mission. In the winter of 1838, Mr. Augustus Finney, then keeping the pioneer hotel of the future Hudson, organized a class. At the Conference of 1838, Bean Creek Mission, reported to have ive hundred and twenty-seven members, was erected into Jonesville Circuit, and attached to the Marshall District, E. II. Pitcher, presiding elder. From some recently-published reminiscences we give the following: "These preachers, like their predecessors on circuit and mission, saw pretty hard times, both for bodily comfort and the facilities for inaugurating denominational work. The settlement was new; the people lived in small, incommodious log tenements. Where school-houses existed at all they were of the same material, but in the village of Lanesville there was not even a school-house in 1839 and 1840, the old log school-house having been burned. But these Methodist preachers, on their monthly rounds, preached in a log house standing in the vicinity of | Witherell's barn, on North Market Street. "The bouse had been used for a dwelling. It was the pioneer house of the town, the foundations of which were laid by Reuben Davis in 1834. It was about sixteen feet square, and had a hole about ten feet square underneath for a cellar. The floor was made of planks split out of bass-wood logs, sized on'the under side, where they rested on the sleepers. This split flooring was about eight feet long, and met in a continuous joint on the middle sleeper. One Sunday in midsummer, in 1840, the people had gathered here for divine service, and were calmly listening to the word from the lips of the Rev. Mr. Sabin, when all at once the floor gave way in the middle, letting the central portion of the audience into the cellar. The l preacher, leaning on the back of the chair which served him for a pulpit, waited patiently until the people had scrambled out, and then proceeded as though nothing had happened. "At the Conference of 1840, held at Marshall, MLr. Scotford was returned to Jonesville Circuit, now attached to Monroe District, with the Rev. Jonathan Jones for a colleague. This year there was a dividing up of religious influence and support, and denominationalism established. The religious condition of the people was somewhat peculiar. The country had recently been settled by people from the East, every one of whom had brought with them early religious impressions; and, in this sparsely-settled country, among the part that are religious at all were to be found adherents of all the prominent religious bodies of the East. " Religious privileges were so rare that all who cared about them at all had hitherto united in sustaining them. In the village of Lanesville and vicinity the Congregationalists and Presbyterians were the more numerous, but were unable to support continuous services of their own, and so sat under the droppings of the Methodist sanctuary on preaching days; but in the social meetings, in the Sundayschool, and iB:;society, they carried the sway and were the ruling power. Indeed, so late as 10 the Methodists of the Lanesville Class were completely subject to their neighbors, and denominationally without influence. "About that time some Methodists moved into the community who had not been used to wearing the yoke of ecclesiastical inferiority, and by earnest effort induced the Methodists to move independently; and very soon, with the help of i I I the Brown Class, they had a Sunday-school of their own started, and general independence followed. This in time stimulated the others, and very soon they had a Congregational minister settled here." From these small beginnings churches have arisen on every hand, keeping pace with the on-rushing tide of population. There are now seventy-eight chliurchorganizations in the County, as follows: MILITARY RECORD OF LENAWEE COUNTY.

Rev. G. B. McElrov, President; Hon. Norman Geddes, President of the Board of Trustees. It is the only college in the United States belonging to this denomination. The Raisin Valley Seminary, controlled by the Society of Friends, and located in Raisin Township. MIedina Academy, situated at Medina. There are two hundred and thirty-one public schools in the County (of which number fifty-three have brick and eight hare stone edifices), beside the incorporated schools of IHudson and Adrian City. There are only two log school-houses in the County. Several country school-houses are heated with furnaces, and furnished with all modern improvements. According to the report of ex-County Superintendent IT. Steamrs, to whom we are indebted for these figures, there are 345 teachers and 14,661 pupils; district libraries embracing 5,757 volumes, and township libraries numbering 7,56'3 volumes, an aggregate of 13,336 volumes. The school taxes for 1872 were 887,781. Total expenditures for school purposes, $*;119,280. Thus it will be readily seen that the interest in school matters in Lenawee County assumes proportions approaching that excellency sought by the best counties of the foremost States in the land. Men came here without that early culture so desirable, and, after suffering the hardships and privations throuogh long years of toil, they are determined that their sons and daughters shall receive thorough mental discipline. IHigh schools are being established in the villages of Clinton, Tecumseh, Hudson, and 1N\orenci, of the first order, where the graduates of the primary schools may obtain a knowledge of the higher branches; while in the City of Adrian is a high school of such character and reputation as to prepare students for the State University in scientific and classical courses. This excellent school, now under; charge of Professor W. J. Cocker as Principal, has the best chemical laboratory of any high school in the State, also a reading-room, furnished with all the firstclass dailies. Many of the rooms are hung with paintings, which of themselves are teachers of no mean order. The district has a library of four hundred volumes, which have accumulated within five years, the old library having been burned with the old high school building. Superintendent Payne has had charge of all the schools of Adrian for four years, and is universally honored. Professor Franklin Hubbard was the founder of the public schools of the city, having organized and put into successful operation, with proper courses of study, the entire schools of Adrian, and of which he was the Superintendent for eleven years.

In conclusion, we would refer the reader to the County and Township maps for much valuable information best shown in that connection. The physical geogrnphb of the County is there plainly seen, as also every farm, orchard, house, wagon-road, railroad, church, school-house, post-office, milt, manufactory, stone-quarry, cemetery, park, etc. The maps of Adrian, Hudson, Tecumseh, and other villages, show the additions in colors, the lots, blocks, streets, etc. The directory informs of the location and business of the leading men of the County. The lithographic views portray their homes, the portraits recall the lineaments, and the biographical sketches recount the deeds of the old settlers and representative mien of the County -events fast fading from the memories of the living; and when these personages shall have passed away, this volume will be all the more cherished by their sons and daughters for its many remnembrances of " home,'' which in Lennawee, as the world over, is the dearest spot on earth. In the Township histories, which follow this, Imany interesting facts may be found of early settlements and of local annals. i i i i i I r I I LIST OF POST-OFFICES AND POSTMASTERS OF LENAWEE COUNTY, MICHIGAN.

The first settlement of what is now known as Adrian Township dates back to 1826, at which time it was but the minor part of Logan Towrnship, which embraced nearly one-fourth of the County. Even so late as 1834 it was but sparsely settled, as is evidenced by the fact related by Samuel Gregg, Esq. (who was Collector for Logan that year), that the entire tax amounted to but $417. The first election of Logan Township was held May 28, 1827, and the following offiers elected: Elias Dennis, Moderator; A. J. Comstock, Clerk; Darius Comstook, Supervisor. Among the very earliest settlers were Anson HIowell, Warner Ellsworth, James Whitney, Walter Whipple, Osmeyer Salsbury, David Wiley, A. J. Comstock, and David Bixby. The first birth and the first death in Adrian was that of Leander Comstoek, son of Addison J. and Sarah Comstock, born August 9, 1827, died October 8, 1827. In 1825 A. J. Comstock purchased of the United States government the land upon which Adrian now stands, and his wifechristened the town after the Roman emperor. The first house, a log one, was built in 1826, and a saw-mill the same year, by Mr. Comstock. Rev. John James preached the first sermon, at the house of Noah Norton, in 1827. The year 1827 also witnessed the advent of the first doctor (C. N. Ormsby), and the first manufacture of brick, by. N. Norton. Andrew J. Webster finished the first buggy manufactured in Adrian. The "Michigan Exchange" was the pioneer hotel, in 1828, in which year also the first store was opened, by E. C. Winter. The first celebration of the Fourth of July ocurred this year, and all the inhabitants far and near, to the number of forty, got together and jollified. An amusing incident is told of this affair worth relating: Turner Stetson, the tall Vulcan of the village, bored and turned his anvil into a cannon for the occasion, which was a notable one, for after several salvos the anvil burst with a tremendous crash, scattering the Indians in all directions; squaws and all whooping and shrieking as if the very Indian devil was after them. i The first school was ket by Miss Dorcas Dean; the first school-house built in 1829, and the first churhe rected in 1832. Orange Butler built the first brick house in Adrian. In 183b the first lawyers settled in Adrian. Half a dozen stores and shops comprised all the business houses at that time. In 1834 the first paper in the Township (and claimed a-thbe first in the County) was issued,-the Lenawee Repulblican and Adrian Gazette, afterward known as the Watechtower. Adrian bad no railroad facilities until 1836, when the Erie and KEalamazoo Railroad was finished to Adrian, being the first road built in the State, or in the Northwest. Adrian was incorporated as a village March 21836, and as a city January 31, 1853; became the County-seat in 1S37, at which time its population was but 500. The Court-House was erected in 1839, but the County needs and deserves a new one. The post-office was established in 1829, and A. J. Comstock wase the firt to handle the mails. The first County fair was held in 1848, at the old Bradish warehouse. Dr. P. J. Spalding is the oldest resident physician, and X W. A. and A. Whitdey the oldest living residents in Adrian. Adrian Cj< was incorporated in 1859, and buildings commenced in 1860, a fine view of whicfi may be seen in another place. There are two churches and twelve school-houses in the Township, not including those in the City. Tatr CITY OF ADRIAN is situated near the centre of the County, in the southeast and northeast corners respectively of Adrian and Madison Townships,-the north boundrwy-line of the latter dividing the City into two nearly equal parts. It is seventy-four miles from Detroit, and thirty-three from Toledo, and contains a population of about 11,000. The City is built on high, rolling ground; its business streets ae well paved and lighted by gas, while good sidewalks and rows of ornamental shade-trees mark the City throughout. The buildings are mostly of brick, and some are very fine and costly. That both its public bunildings and private residen are equal to those of any Western metropolis will not be disputed after an examination of the lithographic illustrations of the Masonic Temple, business blocks, and residences of Messrs. Wilcox, Geddes, Doctors Andrews and Rimball, Mrs. Whitney, and others, found elsewhere in this work. The leading manufactories are the car-shops of the LakeShore and Michigan Southern Railroad, the Illinois Manufacturing Company, the Adrian Paper Mill Company, the Adrian Car Manufacturing Company, the foundries of HI. A. Angel, A. C. King, and James Farrar & Co., and three first-class flouring-mills, beside an organ-faotory, a saw-mill, three breweries, a tannery, woolen-factory, sash, door, and blind, spoke and hub and plow-factoriee, etc. There are over one hundred mercantile establishments, many of whom do a wholesale business, andl some of whose cards can be found in this Atlas. There are eight botels, ten churches, three banks, four newspaperes, two of which (viz.. Pres and Times) issue daily editions. The City boasts also an opera-house and several fine public halls, a military company, five fire companies, and two steamers; it has also a goodly representation of the Masonic order, Odd Fellows, Good Templars, and other civic societies and associations. The schools and school-structures are second to none in the country. There are also several fine parks, upon one of which is erected the Soldiers' Monument, fifty feet in height, constructed at a cost of about $10,000. Adrian now enjoys railroad communication with all parts of the country,-with other roads still progressing. The present postmaster is Jetome H. Fee. We give a list of the successive mayors since the organization of the City government: 1863, J. D. Campbell. 1864, B. Folsom. 1865, W. S. Wilcox. 1866, W. S. Samtmons. 1867, John Townsend. 1868, W. S. Sammons. 1869, Norman Geddcs. 1870, N. B. Eldredge. 1871, R. B. Bobbins. 1872, Henry A. Angell. 1873, W. H. Waldby. The value of real and personal property of Adrian City and Township, based upon the recent equalization, aggregates $6,966,927. MACON TOWNSHIP. The prevailing soil of this Township is a black, sandy loam, with some clay. Crops, in quality and yield, compare favorably with any of the other townships. The railroad facilities consist of the Adrian and Saline Railroad, now in course i of construction; the road-bed being graded through the whole Township. One of the earliest settlers was John Pennington. who moved into what is now Macon with his family, from Raisin, in 1831,.and entered the first land. The town was named in the winter of 1833, after a creek which flows through it from the northwest to the southeast. Israel Pennington and Dr. JosephHowell circulated a petition at that time to hare the town set offfrom Tecumseh, the present towns of Macon, Tecumseh, and Ridgeway then being one. The first religious services were held by Joseph Bangs, a Methodist minister, in a log house near Pennington's. The first frame house was built by Dr. Howell. Mary White was the first white person to die in the Township, in the spring of 1833. James and Gabriel Mills were the first to bring a stock of goods into the town to sell. Israel Pennington was the first postmaster. Among the earliest settlers not before named were Samuel Niblack, the first justice of the peace, James Collins and his sons, Wm. Hendersbott, and Peter Sones. The last named ("honest old Peter") broke the first ground in the Township. When Ira Stewart came in 1833, he hbad to cut his road for four miles through the woods to reach his place. Peter Miller, who settled in 1833, caught a deer by the horns while it was asleep, and in trying to hold it was dragged through the woods until his clothes were torn to shreds. Simeon Davidson, Peter Van Vlet, Daniel Clarkson, Wm. Cadmus, Abram and James Wheeler, Burtis Bird, Asa Bassell, and Captain Isaac Miller may be I mentioned also as early settlers of Macon. The valuation of farms, etc., of this | Township is $1,068,050, and of its productions, $250,000 annulally. Its school facilities are first class. There are three churches in the town, viz., Methodist, Baptist, and Reform. The eastern portion of the town is'well watered by artesian or flowing wells, some of which throw their waters twelve or fourteen feet in the air. A ridge runs through Macon nearly from northeast to southwest, which has indications of having once been the shore of a large inland lake. i MAcoN VILLAGE is a small hamlet in the northeast corner of the Township. LAKE RIDGE POST-OFFICE is located near the centre of the town.! TECUMSEH TOWNSHIP. The history of this Township has much to do with that of the County, and will i be found under that head. Among its early settlers were Musgrove Evans, Judge Le Baron, A. E. Wing, Dr. M. A. Patterson, E. F. Blood, S. Blanehard, General ty. W. Brown, D. Waring, S. Mangas, G. Griswold, E. Tindall, John J. Adam, Wm. Richard, J. G. Roberts, J. H. Waring, and the reverend gentlemen, Wells, Nichols, I and Boughman. Among the prominent men of the present is Perley Bills, Esq., who came in 1837, taught the public schools for years, and has been connected with them ever since their organization. He has been a member of the State Senate and of the Constitutional Convention; is now engaged in banking, and, with Judge Stacey and son, is foremost in fostering the improvements of the day. IMusgrove Evans selected the ground for a village, and was its first white inhabitant, as well as the leader of the first band of pioneers. Alonzo Darwin was the first settled minister of the gospel. The Township and Village derive their names from a famous Indian chieftain. Since Macon and Clinton were set off, I Tecumseh comprises onlyeighteen square miles, but embraces 7934 acres of improved land. The value of frmsndarmg implements, $869,470; live stock, $95,294; value of all productions, $150,365; number of bushels of wheat raised in 1870 was 33,137. The surface is generally level, very fertile, and covered with finely improved farms. In connection with the history of this Township, we cannot forbear a brief mention of the first house erected in Tecumseh. It was constructed by Mr. Evans in 1824, on the spot now occupied by the cooper-shop, a few rods north of the BrownvilLe Mill. It was without floor, as there was no saw-mill nearer than Monroe, and was covered with bark peeled from elm-trees. During the summer it had neither chimney nor fireplace; for cooking purposes a fire was made upon the ground, the smoke escaping through a hole in the roof. A bake-kettle supplied the place of an oven. Late in the following autumn a bedroom was added to the house, and a chimney and oven built, the latter being at some distance from the house. This house sheltered comers and goers, usually from fifteen to twenty persons. In the summer of 1825 Joseph W. Brown built a frame house,the first erected in Lenawee County. The " Tecumseh Mill," afterward known as the " Red Mill," constructed in 1831-2, was the only mill of the kind in the interior of Michigan Territory, and was patronized by all the inhabitants between that point and Lake Michigan. TECUmSEH VILLAGE is situated in the south-central portion of the Township, and is a thriving incorporated village of 3000 inhabitants. It is on the Jackson branch of the Lake Shore and Michigan Southern Railroad, ten miles northeast of Adrian and seventy-eight from Detroit. It is noted for its excellent public schools, fine churches, and first-class hotels. The Raisin River furnishes an excellent water-power, and drives a saw-mill, a paper-mill, two flouring-mills, a stave-factory, etc. It contains two thriving newspapers, and a goodly aumbe of manufaotories. Views of the 1rriage-factory, Temple's lumber-yard, Merchant's Block, Bidwrell's Block, etc., may be seen elsewhere in this work. There are four churches,-Baptist, Presbyterian, Episoopal, and Methodist. PUBLIC SCHOOLS OF TECUMSEH. The public schools of Tecumseh have long been noted for their excellent teachers and high scholarship, many of the most prominent educators in the State having been connected with them; and extra efforts are still being made to keep up the high standard heretofore attained by the employment of a very thorough and competent corps of teachers. The Central School building was erected in 185S, at a cost of $16,000. Beside this, there are three ward-schools in the district, with ample abcommodations. In these the studies are so graded that it requires eight years for pupils to pass through the full course to the high school here; there are four different courses of study, adopted to suit the various tastes and prefere nes of more advanced pupils. In this department also special attention is given to preparing pupils for the State University. The courses of study and lassification of pupils are so arranged that upon the completion of either of the preparatory courses, pupils are prepared to enter the freshman class without frther examination. A view of the Presbyterian Church and also the Union School will be seen in another paert of this work. The village was incrporporated in 1837. It now has a prospect of a seeond rilroad conneetion in the projected Detroit and Adrian Railroad; and the residents of the place are, with commendable enterprise, carrying on the work so bravely inaugurated by the early pioneers. CLINTON TOWNSHIP. This Township was set off from Tecumseh in 1869. Its first settlement dates * back to 1828. The first house was built by Alpheus Kies, in 1829, and the first store established in 1830, by Owen < Pomeroy, in the basement of the first frame house erected in the Township. The first land located was by John Tyrrelf, in 1825. The first white child born was Benjamin W. Fisk, whose mother is still living, nearly four-score years old,-one of the pioneer mothers of Leawee. The first church erected was the Presbyterian, in 1835, Rev. E. N. Nichols, pastor. - The first school-house was built in 1830. The oldest male residents now living are W. V. Fisk and J. S. Kies. Clinton contains 8936 sacres of improved land, valued at $769,770. Its live stock is valued at $76,822, and its productions aggregate $154,555. CLINTON VILLAGE, on the Jackson branch of the Lake Shore and Michigan Southern Railroad, four and a half miles north of Tec*msee, contains about 9W population. It is situated on the river Raisin, from which it derives water-power. i It has a woolen-factory, an agricultural implement manufaotory, and two good I hotels. The shipments from this place include woolen cloths, apples, eggs, butter, live stock, grain, etc. It was incorporated in 1869. S. B. Rose, Postmaster. Thl present village officers are: F. S. Snow, President: A. B. Van de Mark, Clerk; B. O. Randall, Treasurer; and Daniel Brooks is the prpent Supervisorof the Towrnship. NEWBURG is a small hamlet, on the river, midway between Clinton and Tocumseh Villages. FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP. Among the early settlers were the Rev. Henry Tripp, Branklin Osborn, Joseph and William Camburn, James B. Wells, William Bradley, David Edwards, Eri Whelan, Joseph Slater, a d Samuel Hubbard. Horace Case, it is said, made thte first improvement. The town was named after the eminent American philosopher and patriot, Benjamin Franklin. This Township contains 16,752 ares of improved I land, valued at $1,362,456, besides $158,000 of live stock. The value of productions of all kinds for 1870 aggregated $278,410. In the same year it raised 52,222 bushels of wheat, being second in the County; Raisin ranking as first. The Township is also noted for its wool-growing. The land is generally level, bAut undulating in the north. It has a number of beautiful lakes, which are becoming quite famous as places of resort during the summer. FRANKLIN CENTRE is the only hamlet in the Township, and there is located the Soldiers's Monument, erected by the unanimous cAntributions of the residents of the Township, and dedicated July 4, 1866. It is thirty-three feet in height, and a tribute of honor to the heroes who fell in attempting to stem the tide of rebellion, and also reflects credit upon the patriotism of the people of Franklin. A fine view of the monument may be seen on page 30 of this Atlas. The two churches of this Township are located at the " Centre.' CAMBRIDGE TOWNSHIP. The surface of this Township is rolling, with many pictpresque lakes, giving variety to the landscape. Wolf Creek meanders through a portion of the town. i Some of the first settlers were F. ] and C. H. Dewy, Thomas H. Mobwer, 8tepbe Wheeler, Sylvester Walker, C. A. Blackmar, Peter Onstead, F. Reed, and WilHiam Geddis. Cambridge, one of the wealthiest Townships in the County, eontains over 13,000 acres of improved farm lands, the value of which, with agricultural implements, is about $1,000,000. The live stock figures up a total of $141,915, while the productions net about $263,000. The average annual yield of wheat is about 45,000 bushels. The wheat raised in this Township is superior J that of most towns of the County. The soil is a sandy loam. —easioni| gravelly.

Isaac Powers built the first frame house in Cambridge. Dr. Moulton was the first physician. George R. Allis is the present supervisor, aview of whose residence, as well as those of many of his fellow-townsmen, will be found on these pages. SPRINOVILLE, a village of 200 inhabitants, is situated on Wolf Creek, a branch of the Raisin, and contains a flouring- and grist-mill, a hotel, several stores and shops. The principal shipments are flour, wheat, and wool. The country around consists of oak-openings, with a soil admirably suited for grain and grass. WOODSTOCK TOWNSHIP. Named after the village of that name in Vermont, by Charles McKenzie. About one-fourth of its area is covered with timber; a portion is also very broken and rugged. It contains also a dozen or more of picturesque little lakes, the largest of which are entitled Devil's, Goose, and Silver Lakes. " Prospect Hill," near the eastern boundary-line of the Township, is one of the highest elevations in the State. The number of acres under improvement, though not large (viz., 11,851), exceeds that of six other townships in the County, while it leads nine in the yield of wheat; the figures for 1870, according to the census tables, being 36,427 bushels. The valuation of its farms and live stock exceeds $1,000,000. Among the early settlers we may name Jesse Osborn, Charles McKenzie, and John Talbot. ADDISON VILLAGE, situated in the southwestern corner of the Township, and northwestern part of the County, contains about 400 inhabitants. It is about twenty miles from the County-seat, and commands the traffic of a large area of fine farming country. Its chief exports are wheat, pork, and wool. The postoffice bears the same name as the Village. KELLY'S CORNERS and Post-office is located on the north line of the town, at the junction of Sections 4 and 5. ROLLIN TOWNSHIP. This town embraces 11,556 acres of improved land, valued at $1,000,000. Its productions yield annually nearly a quarter of a million of dollars' and the annual yield of wheat alone is over 3000 bushels. The country is rich and beautiful, and produces largely of all kinds of grain and dairy products. It is a well-watered Township, with Bean Creek coursing entirely through it from north to south, Mil Creek emptying into Devil's Lake in the north, Posey and Round Lakes, and several small streams, in the east and south portions of the town. The TownHouse, and Methodist Episcopal Church, on opposite corners, are situated in the geographical centre of the Township, while the Friends' Meeting-House is located one mile farther west. In the centre of Section 20 is found Perkins's Mill, the nucleus of quite a little settlement. " Deacon" Bennett, Nelson and Orson Green, Joseph Beal, Nathan Town, Jonathan Ball, Alfred Belcher, John Poster, Josiah Mills, Salem Vosburg, Mr. Bonny, Warner Ellsworth, W. Hathaway, and Wilson Wood were among the earliest settlers. The old Indian trail from Devil's Lake to Maumee ran through this Township. ROLLIN VILLAGE: is on the Tiffin River, about five miles north of Hudson Village. It was settled in 1835, has saw- and grist-mills, and does a thriving business with the surrounding country. A post-office bearing same name is located here. GEBXBVA POST-OFFICE is located on Bound Lake, on Section 10. ADDISON VILLAGE lies partly within Rollin Township, in Sections 5 and 6. ROME TOWNSHIP. This Township was named in 1834, by Lyman Baker, presumably after the famous capital of the ancient Roman empire. Prior to 1834 it was a part of Logan. The earliest settlers who came to this Township with their families were Sturgis L. Bradley, J. B. Schureman, Alien Hubbard, and Joseph M. Baker, who came in 1833, from New York State. William Luther also settled in 1833, and T. Luther in 1834. The first town-meeting was held in 1835; John Schureman was elected the first Supervisor, and T. Luther, James Allen, and John Bates, Assessors. The first grocery was opened by Messrs. Knowles &H alstead. Rome is one of the best agricultural districts in the country, and yields large crops of wheat, corn, oats, etc. The farmers are mostly well-to-do, and possess fine residences and comfortable homes, as a glance at the views in another part of this work will readily make manifest. Its 16,000 cultivated acres, worth $1,250,000, yield annually from 40,000 to 45,000 bushels of wheat alone. Although possessing no railroad facilities, nor having any large commercial mart within its borders, yet it has a rich soil. an enterprising population, and all the elements of a thrifty farming district. There are five churches within this town, located on Sections 6, 12, 14, 17, and 25, and ten school-houses. The little village of ROME is situated in the centre of the Township, and hence is often called "BRomue Centre." RAISIN TOWNSHIP. Raisin, an agricultural town, derives its name from the river which flows midway through it. Its soil is mostly a sandy loam, easily cultivated, and very productive. The census report of 1870 gave it as the most prodnctive Township in Michigan for that year. It is settled principally by Eastern people, a majority;JS whom belong to the Society of Friends. It is a very peaceable, moral, and:I~nteigent community, as is obvious from the facts that no litigated suit has everbeen carried through in itir that constables are no more elected at town-meetings; that neither drunkards nor rum-shops are found within her borders. On the contrary, it has the finest of school-houses and churches. The Friends were the first to hold religious services, and their meeting-house was the first church edifice in the Township. The Congregational Society was organized in 1835,a brick church erected in 1843; in 1868 it was changed to Presbyterian; this church is a very superb edifice, as may be seen from the view on another page. Noah Norton settled in "the valley," cleared some land, and built a log cabin in 1825. He was followed next by Darius Comstock and his son Milo in 1829. Mr. Comstock soon gathered around him some thirty or more families of the Society of Friends, and after that the Township was rapidly settled, it being a "land of promise." Among the early settlers we may name Joseph Gray, Thomas Sisson, William Tilton, Benjamin MeBea, J. B. Patterson, Thomas Chandler, Daniel and Hiram Kidder, D. M. Clapp, John Lovett, Aaron Comfort, A. Doty, Rufus Raymond, Samuel Conklin, John Pennington, William Camburn, Reuben Satterthwaite, 0. Rogers, P. C. Haviland, and others* -The Township was christened in 1832. At the first annual meeting of the electors of the Township, held at the house of Amos Hoag, April 7, 1834, the following officers were elected: GABRIEL WELLS-Supervisor. AMOs HOAGa-Clerk. JTOSEPH 8TOBTH TH, RICHARD HORTOx, REuTBEN SATTERTHWAITE-Assessors. SIDiEY Dzm%=amRBesm -Collectr. DAMUltS COMsToc, THOMAS SISON-Directors of the Poor. EPHRAIM REELZB, J,.

JosEPH GIBBOws, R. L. HALL, W. WIlPlpL, T. L. OHANDLZBB, JOSEPH SOUTHwoRTH-Sohool Inspectors. A list of the successive supervisors since 1834 will be found in another place. One of the most prominent manufacturing establishments of the Township is the Raisin flouring-, grist-, and saw-mills, Woolston Comfort, proprietor. The sawmill was built in 1838, by Samuel Satterthwaite and Tilton Curtis, and the gristmills in 1847, by Satterthwaite and Aaron Comfort, all of which the present proprietor purchased in January, 1864. He at once thoroughly repaired both mills, replacing the old machinery by the very best that could be procured, placing them in the front rank for doing good work. Mr. Comfort has followed his avocation i in these mills continuously since 1852, and is now carrying on a large business, with a determination to excel in his branch. A fine view of the mills, and their owner's residence, may be found among the Raisin illustrations. Another enterprise worthy of note is the Union Cheese-Factory, an extensive undertaking, and a successful one so far as we can learn; a sketch of their building may be seen on page 53. H. M. Bailey has recently established a jelly manufactory. The Town-House is situated in the centre of the Township. We have already referred to their fine schools, but we must not overlook the "Raisin Valley Seminary," located in the western central part of the town, on Section 19, and a representation of which may be found on page 51. It is controlled by the Friends, and is *in a flourishing condition. CHASE'S is a station on the Jackson branch of the Lake Shore and Michigan Southern Railroad, three and a half miles north of its junction with the main line, and five miles northeast of Adrian. RAISIN CENTRE POST-OFFICS, the only one in the Township, is located at the common corner of Sections 27, 28, 33, and 34. LITTLE HOPE is a small hamlet, about equidistant from the river, Chase's, and Raisin Centre. RIDGEWAY TOWNSHIP. i Ridgeway was set off from Macon March 5, 1841. The first election was held in the village of Ridgeway, and the first supervisor elected, Augustus Montgomery, received eighty votes. The first town clerk was Timothy Baker. The first settlement within the present limits of Ridgeway i- ts made in 1831, by George Drown, J. 0. Dennis, Jonathan Clark, and Robert Wilson, who were soon followed by John Palmer, Francis Coats, Stephen V. Miller, George Brown, Cecil Clark, J. F. Schreeder, and others, many of whom are still living in the Township, while those who have passed away are represented by their children. The population of the Township is about 1000. The town derives its name from the natural ridge which runs diagonally through it, and is supposed to have been formerly the shore of Lake Erie, or other inland water. Only about one.third of the land is tillable, but the 77S0 acres under cultivation make a goodly show, according to the last census, viz., 21,741 bushels of wheat raised; value of all productions, $173,484; value of farms and live stock, $686,139. There are three churches in the Township. Ridgeway contains a small unincorporated village, and a post-office, both bearing the name of the town. Its population is about 300, and its shipments consist principally of grain, wool' lumber, and fruit. It has a daily mail; Peter Sharp the present (1874) postmaster. BLISSFIELD AND DEERFIELD TOWNSHIPS. Blissfield was organized in 1827. It then included the present Townships of Deerfield, Palmyra, Ogden, and Riga. William Kedzie, of Delhi, N. Y., entered at the United States Land Office, at Monroe, on the 3d of May, 1824, the first government land in this town, but did not occupy it until October, 1826. Hervey Bliss made a purchase in June, 1824, and in December following moved on to it with his family, being the first white resident of the town, which was named after him. Gideon West settled near Mr. Bliss in 1825, and was the second resident. Soon after, George Giles, Almond Harrison, and Samuel Buck came; and in 1827 quite an emigration set in, viz., Benjamin and Daniel Clark, Jonas Ray, Anthony McKey, and Benjamin Tibbets, who settled near the present village of Deerfield; and Morris Burch, Isaac and Samuel Randall, Ebenezer Gilbert, Edward Calkins, Jacob and John Lane, Ezra Goff and sons, and John Preston, who settled near what is now Blissfield Village. The first town-meeting was held at Bliss's house, May 28, 1827, at which Wm. Kedzi'e was chosen Supervisor, and Ezra Goff Town Clerk. There were twenty offices to fill and only thirteen electors to fill them; so that every man had two or more offices. The expenses of the town for the first sixteen months were less than $37. Petersburg was the nearest settlement, and Monroe was the nearest market, —the nearest place to get provisions, milling, medicines, doctors, or magistrates,-with little or no conveyance but the tramp line. Henry Bliss, about this time, opened the road from Petersburg to his settlement. The first two marriages occurred on the same day, November 23, 1826, —Samuel Buck to Miss Margaret Frary, and George Stout to Miss Delight Bliss; the ceremonies being performed by a justice of the peace, who came from Monroe on purpose. -Miss Lucinda Buck, now wife of Fred. Cannon, was born October 3, 1827, and was the first infant presented to this pioneer colony. The first adult death was that of William Kedzie, which occurred in August 1828. Rev. J. A. Boughman, Methodist, from Monroe, preached the first sermon. In February, 1829, Rev. Alanson Darwin, from Tecumseh, organized the first church: Presbyterian. The first post-offices were established in 1828, at Blissfield and " Kedzie's Grove." Chester Stuart, from Monroe, taught the first school in the first school-house (built of logs, within the present limits of Blissfield), at thirteen dollars a month. The second school-house was built near the present site of Deerfield, in 1829, in which Miss Caroline Bixby was first teacher. In November, 1830, Miss Eliza Clark, aged sixteen, got lost in the woods, and was three days without food or shelter before she found a settler. At the territorial election, held July, 1831, there were fifty-eight votes cast for Delegate to Legislative Council, Darius Comstock, of Lenawee County, receiving thirty-one. In 1834 the first saw-mill was built- by A. Harrison, with one run of stone attached, for grinding corn, superintended by Seymour Barrett. Mr. Harrison also pnt in a small stock of goods. About this time Mr. Bliss started a plat for the village, and a survey made for the "corduroy turnpike" across "Cottonwood Swamp." Mr. Gotlieb Crapp erected the first frame house in Blissfield; it is still used as a residence. A boy by the name of Tubbs was stolen by the Indians from the Blissfield colony in the early day, with whom he remained for many years before he returned to his home and civilized life. The following named early settlers came between the years 1827 and 1835: Ruel Payne, Samuel Stewart, James Fowle, Thomas F. Dodge, Caleb Wheeler, Ralph Bailey, Solomon Harrison, John Randall, Jared Pratt, Peleg Pettis, Norman Torrey, John Sherwin, Abner J. McWilliams, Ezra Newton, Nathan Austin, John Eddy, William C. Clark, Avery Pool, Johnson Haywood, Darius Mead, George M. Hubbard, 0. A. Sackett, Horace Pierce, P. T. Davenport, Charles H. Gilmore, John Payne, George Ferguson, William Tenant, and Albert R. Hickox. Blissfield and Deerfield are both generally level and heavily timbered. Soil, clay, with occasional sandy ridges. Deerfield Township was set off in 1867. BLISSFIELD VILLAGE contains about 1000 inhabitants, and is on the Toledo division of the Lake Shore and Michigan Southern Railroad, ten miles from Adrian and twenty-three from Toledo. It is also on the river Raisin. It is incorporated, and contains a fine new steam fiouring-mill, a large tobawoo-factory, beside roanu factories of staves, broom-handles, and furniture. Lumber, brain, and frut are the staple articles of shipmentt DEERFIELD VILLAGE was incorporated in 1872, and is also 011 the Lae Shore and Michigan Southern Railroad, at the point where it intersects tho Chi&ago and Canada Southern Railroad. The completion of the latter road will no doubt make Deerfield a place of some importance. It contains about 600 inhabitants, and has a fiouring-mill and manufsatories of broom-handles, staves, wooden bowls, etc. PALMYRA TOWNSHIP. This Township derives its name from Palmyra, New York, from whiah point many of the first settlers came. It is a good farming district: has f ribi, pr0 -ductive soil. Wheat, grain, and potatoes are the leading products. The shipments consist of grain, potatoes, brooms, handles, shingles, etc. The cenisu of 1870 shows that this Township had 10,088 aroes of improved land, and raised19,826 bushels of wheat. The value of the live stock is rated at $123,000. -aImyra was set off from Blisisfield in the spring of 1834, and included also the present limits of Ogden Township. Ezra Goff and Henry J. Paddock are-sapposed to have been the first actual settlers in 1826, followed soon after by T, B. Goff, Wm. Foster, Benjamin Mather, Americus Smith, Nathan Gibbs, Jr., J-Tuus Gibbs, Daniel, Lester P., and Walter P. Clark, Jno. Comstock, Wait OCapin, andWm. Beldin; and prior to 1834, Benjamin Clark, N. D. Warner, Alonzo Mitobell, Horace Whitmarsh, Robert Craig, Orrin and Nathaniel Gleason, Dr. 0. C. Bobinson, Reuben Tooker, Rollin Robinson, David Buck, George and BrasUla Hg-E. vey, Gersham Noyes, Alex. R. Tiffany, Asahel Brown, George Colvin, Edin Holloway, and Edward Underwood. George Crane was the first supervisor. The first saw-mill was built in 1834, at the present village of Palmyra, and the first grist-mill at the same place, by a Toledo company, in 183-7; it had four run of stone, and cost $60,000. It was burned in 1870, and has not been rebuilt The first. marriage was that of Eliah, Franklin to Miss Lu~cy Noyes, the notice of which was published in the first paper issued in- the County. Lyman Li. Goff, son of Judge T. B, Goff, is supposed to have been the first child born in Palmyra Township, it being as early as September 3, W1029. Mrs, Sarah Welch (widow) and Mr. Stewart, both residents of Palmyra, are upward of one hundred years of age. The first purchase of land in the Township was made by N. W. W"sWortb, from Connecticut, October 7, 1823. In 1837 Palmyra had a mild experience of a wild-cat bank, but it only did business for a few month*. PALMYRA VILLAGE is on the Raisin, six miles southeast of Adrian. Its population is about 200. It contains a saw- and grist-mill, manufactories of brooms, handles, shingles, and barrels, and some stores and mechanics' shops, A factory, under the Alden patent, was established last year (1873) by a otock company,. for drying fruits, vegetables, herbs, etc. Palmyra has a daily mail.. WELLSVILLE is a small hamlet and station on the Lake Shore and Michigan Southern Railroad, near the eastern Township line, and about seven miles east of Adrian. Population, 40. Post-offloe of same name. MADISON TOWNSHIP. The first settlers of this Township were Nelson and Curan Bradish, who came in 1827. They were soon followed by Samuel Carpenter, Nehemiah Bassett,.L. Edmunds, William Brooks, Stephen and Cassander Peters, Elijah Johnson, Reuben Mallory, Samuel and Reuben Davis, John and Joel Fitcb, Levi and Josiah Shumway, Nathaniel Cole, Aaron Baker, Lewis Nickerson, Calvin Bradish, and many others. Some of these men still live in Madison, and the prosperity of others remain to keep up the progressive tide of civilization. The Towtship was organized April 7, 1834, and called 14sawee, but in 1838 the name was changed to Madison, owing to the fact that very many of her citizens came from Madison, in New York State. The first saw-mill was built by Calvin Bradish. Isaac Colvin was the first town clerk, and Garrett Tenbrook the first supervisor. The first school-house was a log one, built in what is now Madison Cuntre; Ebenezer S. Carpenter was the first to teach in it, but Miss JEmelivi Bi1by was the pioneer teacher of the town, —teabing at C. Peters's private house.'Myron, son of Nelson Bradish, was the first white child born in Madisons, in April, 1830. Nelson Bradish built the first log house,, and his 1E6 was the first white woman in the Township. Madison is a fair alter nation of opnings and heavy timber.; soil, sandy. There are over 13,000 a&rs of laud under cultivation, and in amount of productions Madison stands the third township in the County, aggregating $288,039 in 1870. A..W. Bradish was Supervi.4orin 1861-and 1862, and Township Clerk from 1845 to 1861 inclusive, and for the last four years; to him we are inrdebted for many items from the town records. DOVER TOWNSHIP. This Township is generally level, with a elay soil and well improved lands. It is one of the foremost agricultural districts in the County, embracing 14,491 acres of improved land, valued at $1,175,597. Its productions in 1870, as given in the census tables, equaled $257,057, and its yield of wheat was given at 38,4 09 bushels. The aggregate of real and personal property of DoV-er is $1,4.09, 04" The first entry of land we an find on the records for this Townsdip was made by Israel Pennington, May 27, 1830. Samuel Warren, of 'Ontario LCoanty, JN6w York, entered the second piece only four days later. In 1834 MIxr.obb kept*, tavern near the centre of the town, on the road from Adrian to Kiddeeys Mil4l,a log house of two rooms; and al lold settler" who stopped there says they had no bedsteads, but slept on the fdoor, and that half a dozen persons, fille te etire sleeping apartment, except the corner in which stood the whiskyj barrel, their apology for a bar, —the other room being used jointly as kitchen and diningroom. Things have changed some since those days. Now AS fine farms and residences are found there as can be shown in the County, i2 proof o which we offer a few illustrations on the sucfeeding pages. CLAYTON VILLAGE, on the town-line of Dover and Hudson, with about equal portions in each, contains some 500 inhabitants. It is on the Michigan Southern Railroad, eleven miles west of Adrian. It was frst settled in 1836, and ineorpo,~ I rated in 1870. The shipments are mostly agricultural products, including batter, cheese, eggs, and live stock. 1 UDSON TOWNSHIP. This is a good farming Township, and yields largely ofwheat, wool, pork, and other produce, for which the village of Hudson is an important market.' The first settlement, which dates back to 1833, was on the banks of Hill"dale C0reek, and was known as the <f Ames-Kidder settlement." The Ames's made a clearing aud commenced to put up a log house, but before it was completed proevioua gave out; Alpheus Pratt and Ezra Antes were dispatched to Adri&n for supplies, a trip they accomplished in five days, sleeping under their wagon Bights. They got provisions and reaehed home safely; but this trip helped them in another and marked manner: it made known their existence andlocaftion as a settlemen t to the Adrian people, and soon land-lookers ia large numbers visited their SW_. tion and located with them, thus rapidly settling the valley. The house above. referred to, and the first erected in the settlement, was 16 by 22 feet, and sheltered twenty-six persons, wlio slept on the foor in two rows. In 1834 Alpbeus Pratt z I i'I I ~" ff'1 __ __ _ __ ~ _ _ __ -- -II -I I =:::I:.: I-'

Ai - --- -- ---.. - _1__1____1 _ Gaylord Tabor, and several others, put up houses, while Reuben and Samuel Davis entered land on what is now the north side of Main Street, and commenced building a saw-mill. Simeon and Wm. H. H. Van Aken, Beriah Lane, John Davenport, and Sylvester Kenyon came in about this time. Among other early settlers we may mention Daniel Hudson, after whom the town and village was named, Nathan B. Kidder, and Wme. Young, Jr., from Ontario County, New York, in 1833. Indians, bears, and wolves were plenty, the latter being the most troublesome. All had hard work to get enough to eat; no pork could be obtained nearer than Monroe, sixty miles away, and then it cost $30 a barrel, and flour at Adrian was $16 per barrel. Reuben Davis commenced, and Beriah Lane finished and occupied, the first house erected in the village of Hudson. After that there was a lively time in building log houses. The Indian trail from Maumee to Devil's Lake ran through this town. The Indians were not removed until a late date comparatively. The Township was organized in 1836, the first town-meeting being held on April 4, at the house of B. H. Lane. Simeon Van Aken was chosen Supervisor. Prior to that date Hudson was a part of the town of Logan, and afterward of Lenawee Township. Aug. Finney, from Vermont, opened the first hotel in Hudson, in 1838. Dr. Cleveland was the first medical practitioner. The first marriage was by Justice Purchase, and the contracting parties were George Saulsbury and Abbie Dickinson, in 1835. In September, 1835, Ames's wife died of consumption, the first adult death in the settlement, followed very soon by the decease of Reuben Davis's mother. The first religious society established was the Methodist, in 1835; and Rev. E. Warner, from Lewiston, New York, preached the first sermon in N. Cressey's log house, in the fall of the same year. Lorenzo Davis, John Scotford, and Alien Staples were pioneer missionaries in Hudson and vicinity. The first schools were established in 1841. on the east and west sides respectively, and for a time were also used for church purposes; with this in view, the west school-house, in rear of B3oies's store, had a tower,-for several years the only steeple in the town. The first of the present churches were erected by the Baptist and Congregational denouninations about 1847, the latter edifice now being occupied by the Wesleyans. The aggregate value of the real and personal property of Hudson is over two and a half million dollars. IHUDSON VIrLLAGE, the second place in importance in the County, is situated on the Tiffin River, and on the Lake Shore and Michigan Southern Railroad, ninetyone miles from Detroit,-and one hundred and ninety-four miles from Chicago. Population about 3000, and is a wide-awake, enterprising place. Has several extensive manufactories, viz., a spoke and hub factory, a butter-tub factory, two foundries and machine-shops, chemical works, carriage, door and blind manufactories, and a flouring-mill. It has a good share of mercantile houses, and supports two weekly papers,-Post and Gazette. The trade of Hudson is large in proportion to its population. It contains seven churches,-Methodist, Baptist, Episcopal, WTesleyan Methodist, Congregational, Presbyterian, and Catholic, each of whom have good edifices. Its schools are superior, and include a fine high school. Hudson was first settled in 1S34, and until 1840 was known as Lanesville, when the name was changed to Hudson, after an old and honored settler. In 1854 it was incorporated as a village, and since has had a steady and healthy growth. Augustus Kent is the present President of the village, and J. J. HIogaboam, Town Clerk. MED1NA TOWNSHIP. This Township was formed out of the territory of Seneca, from which it was set off in 1837, and the following year was added to it the strip of '3 south, 1 east. Medina was first settled May 24, 1834, by Nathaniel VW. Upton, who cleared the first land in the town. The next settlers were John Foster and wife, in June following, and between that time and the month of October, same year, John Knapp, Cook IHotchkiss, William Walworth, and William Cavender camne into the town and joined their fortunes with those who bad preceded them. It is claimed by some that Wmn. Walworth built the first house that sheltered white persons in Medina; but we think this an error, and that the honor belongs to either Mir. Upton or Mr. Foster. But the above named were the first to dispute the sway of the "red men of the forest" who so long roamed its valleys. John Knapp erected the first house in what is now Medina Village. Samuel Gregg and Orrin Pisley were, with Mr. Cavender and Wm. Walworth, the earliest settlers in the northeast part of the Township. Other early pioneers were Newton Dawes, Suffrenus Dewey, Noah K. Green, John Gould, Benjamin Hornbeck, and Lewis Shepardson. Rollin RIt. Ilill was the first supervisor. Mr. Bushnell built a log store in 1835, at Canandaigua, and the first saw-mill was erected the same year. The first store in Medina Village was opened for barter in 1836. The first school held forth in a log cabin, at Canandaigua, in 1835. The first town-meeting was held at Medina Village, in January, 1836. The first couple married were John D. Suttont and Abigail Knapp; the first birth was Henry F. Foster; and the first death that of Lauren Knapp, in August, 1836. It is claimed that MIedina has the honor of having sent more men to the State Legislature than any other town in the County, and names Lauren Hotechkiss, Ebenezer Daniels, and Artemus Alien, each one term; Philo Wilson two terms, beside office of Judge of Court of Common Pleas; N. K. Green three terms, and Dr. R. Kibbe a senatorial term. The real and personal property of the town is figured at $1,640,793. The population is about 2000. There are two villages in the Township, with post-offices bearing ^same naies, viz.: MEDINA, a small village of two or three hundred inhabitants, five miles south of Clayton, on the stage route to Morenci, and seventeen miles from Adrian, in a rolling, timbered, well-watered country. The Tiffin River furnishes it good water-power. It has two churches,-Baptist and Methodist. A large cheesefactory is its leading manufacture. It has a daily mail. 16 CaUANDAIGCsA, a small village in the northeast part of the town, and named after a village of same name in New York (as likewise was Medina), contains about 300 inhabitants. It is on the mail route between Clayton and Morenci, about five miles south of the former and six miles due north of the latter. It is situated on a branch of the Tiffin, in a good agricultural region. It contains a hotel, three saw-mills, manufactories of carriages, hay-racks, wagon-felloes, etc. | SENECA TOWNSHIP. The present town of Seneca was part and parcel of Fairfield up to 1836, which also embraced Medina (since set off), as well as town 9 south, 1 east, the disputed Ohio territory out of which grew the ' Toledo War." For a year after the divorce of Mledina the fractional Ohio strip remained under the jurisdiction of Seneca; after which time it was legally united to Medina. Two settlements were made in the town almost simultaneously: one known as Hayward's, in the east part of the town, and the other in the western portion, led by Gersham Bennett and others. However, it is believed that Archibald Brower and Roswell J. Hayward, who settled in 1833, built the first houses in the Township. Among other early pioneers we mention Jacob Baker, Simon Wilson, Micajah Hayward, Amos, Samuel, and Richard Kinney, Dennis Wakefield, Jefferson Dunn, John Knapp, Stephen Spear. John Stockwell, etc. After their advent the town settled up quite rapidly. In 18.34 Simon Wilson and a few others cut a road from the southwest part of town to the Hayward settlement, thus opening communication between the two points. The first town-meeting was held at the house of Jacob Baker, on the first Monday in lMay, 1836, of which meeting Elias J. Baldwin was Moderator, and by which he was chosen the first Supervisor; J. H. Sweeny, Treasurer; and Simon D. Wilson, Town Clerk. The Highway Commissioners for that year were John Knapp, William Lee, and Amos Franklin. The first magistrates of Seneca were E. J. Baldwin, Cook HIotchkiss, Alanson Briggs, and William Lee, the last two residing in town 9 south, I east. The year 1835 was a trying one to the settlers: there was a great scarcity of provisions, so much so that many persons went up to the Adrian settlement and procured materials to make nets, and therewith caught fish from Bean Creek, which were unusually plenty that year. Beside these mullets they had little to eat; some of the settlers even dug up the potatoes they had recently planted, in order to keep from starving. Wolves were plenty, and many thrilling stories are told of them, or held in memory by the first settlers. E. J. Baldwin tells of being followed in the fall of 1835 by a pack of wolves all the way from the woods south of Morenci, where he was erecting a log house for his future home, up to the very door of the house in the villa-e where he was temporarily stopping. But the wolf bounty soon thinned them off. Archie Brower's first wife was the pioneer white woman of Seneca, and Almin Brower the first birth. The first victim of the King of Terrors was Judith P. Hayward, who died in January, 1835. The first weddings in the two respective settlements of Senecn were celebrated over the nuptials of HI. N. Wilson and Phebe Wakefield, in 1836, and Stephen Hayward and Jane Sanger in January, 1837. James II. Sweeney was the first disciple of Ysculapius, and he had plenty of ague patients in those days. The first school-house was erected in the spring of 1835. The Methodist denomination were the first religious society to organize, and they erected the first church in 1841, in Morenci Village. The first saw-mill was set in motion in 1S35, and the grist-nmill at Morenci, which for twenty-two years has been grinding away, is probably the oldest flouring-mill. William Sutton was "< mine host" of the first tavern, established at Morenci in 1836, and whose sign-board was a barrel-head nailed to a post. In 1836 Jeph Whitman built a log store where Morenci now stands. Seneca derives its name from Seneca, NTew York, fromnt which point many of her citizens emigrated. It is a good farming country, grain being the chief production, and woolen goods the principal manufactures; these articles, together with butter and cheese, being the leading exports. The dairy interest is increasing fast, there being now three cheese-factories in the town, whose aggregate production for 1873 was about 250,000 pounds. In the Township there are five churches, representing the Methodist, Baptist, United Brethren, and Congregational denominations. At Miorenci is located D. C. Gillis's cheese-factory, i only established in 1873, but already doing a flourishing business. IMoRENcr, the only village in Seneca, is said to contain about 1500 inhabitant?, and is situated on the Tiffin River, near the Ohio State line, in the southwest corner of the town. It was settled in 1835, and incorporated in 1871; contains two hotels, four churches, a number of stores and factories, and since the opening of the Canada Southern Railroad bids fair to grow, and become a very considerable village and trading-point. FAIRFIELD TOWNSHIP. The Township of Fairfield was settled mostly by people from the State of New York. The first land entered in the town was by John WV. Austin, Jr., 80 acres, on Section 10, October 7, 1830. The first house was built in 1831, on the southeast quarter of Section 10, by John Arnold. In 1832 there were several log houses I erected. The first school-house was put up in District No. 1, and located on the southeast corner of Section 3. The first church was built by the Baptist denomination, on Section 7. Up to 1834 Fairfield was an integral part of Blissfield Township. The first Township-mneeting was held in the house of J. H. Carpenter, in the spring of 1834, there being at that time thirty-two electors present! Andrew Mlillett was chosen Chairman: votes were cast in a hat, in lieu of a ballot-box, and in the contest between John Baker and John H. Carpenter for the office of supervisor, the formner was elected by one majority. Moses Cook was elected the first town clerk. The first saw-mill was built on Section 9, by Levi Shumway and Andrew Millet. The first cheese dairying was commenced in 1S52, by Samuel Horton, who carried it on with success during his life, and established the fact that as good cheese could be made in Michigan as in New York. The first cheesefactory was put in operation in 1866, by Rufus Baker, a view of which may be seen on another page. The Township is devoted mostly to grazing, either to make milk fur the dairy or to fatten cattle for the shambles, large farms being used for the latter purpose. There are now about 700,000 pounds of cheese made in the Township annually. The first post-office was established in the winter of 1835-6, and was called "Baker's," Orrin Baker being the postmasters-a duty he fulfilled for eighteen years. John Baker was the first man that contracted to carry the mails from Baker's Corners to Adrian, a distance of six miles, and the first few mails he carried tied up in his red bandanna. There are now seven churches, thirteen schoolhouses, four cheese-factories, four steam saw-mills, one steam grist-mill, and two planing-mnills, two shingle-mills, and one cheese-box factory, in the limits of Fairfield Township, which embraces three villages within its boundaries, viz., Fairfield, Jasper, and Weston; the former being popularly known by its original name, "Baker's Corners." Among the many fine illustrations of residences in this Township will also be seen A. N. White's carriage manufactory, and Alger & Higgins's business block, located in Fairfield Village. As a contrast between the early day and the present state of things in this part of Lenawee County we will give one item, viz.: just prior to the organization of Fairfield from the territory of Blissfield Township, Orrin Baker and a few others accompanied a surveyor, who chained a line from what is now Blissfield Village through to Defiance, on the Maumee, woithout filnding a settler in the whole distance! OGDEN TOWNSHIP. This Township was first settled by Moses Volentine, from New York, in the fall of IS26; he was soon followed by Joel Woodward and John Underwood. Erastus Brockway moved into this Township in the spring of 1835, and is the oldest settler new living in Ogden,-he never has missed voting at any election or townmeeting since its organization. In the fall of 1835 Ephraim Hicks settled with his family on the farm where he now lives. Clark Angel, William Paul, and Ruel Thayer came the same fall, and Norman B. Carter in 1836. The Township was organized in the spring of 1837, and Ephraim Hicks chosen the first Moderator; thirteen votes being cast at said organization. Amanda Volentine, now MIrs. Chester Randall, of Blissfield, was the first white child born in the Township, and the first death was that of Lvdia D. Paul, in 1838. The first saw-mill was built by Calvin Bradish, in 1837, on Gleason Brook. The Township is naturally low and level, and heavily timbered with maple, oak, walnut, ash, whitewood, etc., from which large amounts of timber have been taken. By large outlays in draining its lands have been made fertile, and are constantly improving. The value of its farms and farming implements is $602,000, beside $88,000 of live stock. The value of its productions aggregated $211,325 in 1870. Ogden has no village within its borders, but has two post-offices, named Ogden Centre and West Ogden. The value of real and personal property of this Township aggregates some $900,000. RIGA TOWNSHIP. This Township was first called Pottsdam, after a village of the same name in New York. Zebina Smrnith, fromn New York State, was the first actual white settler in Riga, in 1836, who was followed, the same fall, by Reuben Tredway and E. S. Guernsey. Mr. Smith is deceased; the others are yet living, in adjoining townships. The first settlement in Riga Township was in its southern portion; but Roswell Wr. Knight moved into Pottsdam, from Blissfield, in 1839, and erected the first house in the north part of the town, now the site of Riga Village; and the same year, with soine others, cut a road through to the settlement in the south part of the town; \vhile thus engaged, his son Almon killed a bear, weighing two hundred and five pounds. Among other early settlers we may mention Armon Barrett (the oldest settler in Riga), Rufus Wells, Levi Eddy, John Dings, James and George Westerman. The first white child born in the Township wats Martin Van Buren Tredway, who served as a volunteer in the 47th Ohio infantry regiment, and was killed in the battle of Resaca, Georgia. The first mill was built by D. D. Sinclair and T. G. Templeton, in 1858. The first church in the Township to rear its spire heavenward was the German Lutheran, in 1865. The Indians were very tenacious of their " happy hunting-grounds," in this part of the country at least; up to 1552 they made the southern portion of i Riga their abode. Rig-a is settled mostly by the German element,-a sturdy, thrifty race, and from whose ranks have cornme many of the leading business men and some of the prominent officers of the County. The soil is principally loam, with a clay subsoil, while some portions are sandy. The old maps, which made this Township nearly all swamp, were greatly in error, there never having been a foot of that undesirable variety of surface in the Township. On the contrary, as a grain-growing and stock-raising town it is not excelled in the County. It is also noted for its heavy yield of fine grass. RIGA VILLAGE is on the Lake Shore and Michigan Southern Railroad, in the northern part of the Township. It was founded by Roswell W. Knight, about the year 1855. Mr. Knight gave the railroad company the land for the erection of depots, etc., and the station was named, in his honor, Klnight's i but after his death it was changed to Riga. Population about 300. It contains a steam sawmill, a stave- and heading-factory, several stores and shops, a hotel, two churches, and a fine brick school-house costing $10,000. The only post-office in the town i is located here, and bears the same namne. In concluding this history, we would say that very many interesting facts and reminiscences are given in the biographical sketches which follow this history, and therefore are omitted in this connection to avoid useless repetition.

This gentleman was born October 30, 1807, in Paisley, Scotland. At an early acre he attended Wallace Hail Academyv afterward graluuatin- at the Uniiversity of Glasgow, in 1826. He was a classnate of Wy. E. Gladstone, Prime Minister of Great Britain, with whom he wvas a cornlpetito~r for prizes in Greek exercises in a\ class of between three and four hundred, Mr. Gladstone taking the first prize, and Sr. Adam the second. About two months after he graduated be left for America, landing at Baltimore, but soon after taking charge of the BIeadville Academy, in Pennsylvania, a position he held sone tine, living there and in W~yoming Valley until he came to Michigan, in ]831, settlinc, in Lennaee County, of which he has been a resident since. He bass been prominently identified with the history lind growth of the Territory and State of Michigan. He at first purchased some hald in what is noW Franklin Township, but which was then included in the organized town| sip of Tecunmseh. During the winter of 1831-2 for. Adam tauglht the district school at Clinton, then just beginning to be settled, not having until the following winter acquired even the convenicnce of a. separate post-office. In the spring of 1832 Mr. A. went out as a vol nteer private in Captain Nixon's co7panly, to serve durin, the Black Hawk War. The company only went as far as Niles, but were held subject to orders as (" minute-men" for the balance of the month after their return hoil-e. He afterw rd took part in the "1 Toledo War," as second lieritenaInt, and for his gallant services, we suppose, on both these occasions, was alppointed p~nymaster of the fifth division Michigan militia, and in 1841 aid-de-camp to General Davis Smith of the same command. In 183;5 he was elected as one of the eight delegates from. Lenawee County to the Convention, which met in any of that year, to frame the first State Constitution for the then proposed State of Michigan. He was the VODunDest member of' that body, but as the journal of tile Convenition showsv, le took an active, part ill its proceedings. For three years next succeedinc the organization of the State he was Secretary of the State Senate. In 1839 lie was a member of the House of Rcpresentatives from Lenawec County, and in 1840-1 a member of the Senate from the Second District, composed of the counties of Monroe, Lcnawee, and EHilldale. In Janluary, 1842, he aits elected by the Legislature to the office of State Treasurer, for the unexpired term of the then incumbent) and Was twice reelected to the same position, for the four succeeding years. But in May, 1845~, at the solicitation of Governor Barry, lie resigned the office to take the appointment of Auditor-Genernl, vice Charles G. HAmmond, resigned. In 18,'47 Mr. A. wits again. a member of tile House of 11-eresentattives froic Lcnawe County, find beside his special duties as Chairman of the Comllittce oil Wys anld heans and services on other commnitteefs, took al active part in the location of the capitol at Lanesing. For his sins (as, hlen regarded by some) in that action, he was solicited by Hon. D. V. Bell, his successor as Auditor, to ace t ax re-appointment as Auditor, to enable Mir. Bell to resign and accept a situation with the Michigan Central Rlilroad. Mir. A. finally concluded to accept, and in MInrch, 1848, during tie first session of the Legislature at Lal)sin;, was commissioned again as Auditor-General, and served lentil January, 185l. Beside the regular duties of his office during that time, he superintended the exp enditure of a small land appropriation for the opening of a road east from Capital Square to the Grand River Road, and the erection of a bridge on tale samle, oter Grand River. From the expiration of this term until 1871 he was not officially connected with the administration of State affairs, bei g for the most of that time in the service of the Michigan Southern and Northern Indiana Railroad Company: first as their coilstruction agent during the building of the Jackson Branch, the Three Rivers Road, the Air-Line, and the Detroit and Toledo Road; and afterward, as patlymaster, and for the last ten years prior to his resignation, in 1868, holding the position of auditor of the company. In the fall of 1870, having. at the solicitation of friends of both politicsl parties, consented to run as a candidate for Representative from his district, he was elected, and served with'credit during 1871-2, winning the respect and friendship of all his colleagues. -Mr. A. was also one of the first Board of Regents of the Michigan State University, and for several, ears treasurer of that institution. He was the first treasurer of the Michigan State Agricultural Society, for which service he holds their diplolna. In all the positions of trust and responsibility in which he has been placed, we believe le has served with ularked fidelity. In 1873 he participated with Governor Bagleyf and his associates on the committee of arrangfements for the laying of the corner-stone of the new capitol at Lansing, officiating as vice-president for the Sixsth Senatorial District. THOMAS H. M;OSHER, CAMBRIDGE. John Mlosher, father of Thomas H., was born in Washincrton Counts-, New York, in I 788. He studied medicine, and in 1809 w;ts elected a member of tie Cuntyv -Medical Society; in 1810 removed to Cayuga County, New York, then a wilderness, where as a physician, merchant, and faithful public officer, he was held in the highest estimation. In 1842 he removed with his fanily to Somerset, Hillsdale County 'Michi gan, where as a physician he Soon obtained an extensive practice. In 1850 he was a member of the Constitutional Convention. He died at Addison, LenRwee County, November 5, 1860, in his seelty -third sear. IHis wife, '3arv S. M3osher, was born in Connecticut, fnd is still livin- at an advanced wgre with her daughter, at Hudson, Michigan. This couple reared a fainily of nine children, five sons and four daughters,-Thomas H., the subject of this sketch, being the second child. After attendinm the public schools of his vicinity, he remained one year at the Cayugp Academy, at Aurora, New York; and in 1831 comnmenczed his mercantile career behind his father's counter. In Au-ust, 1836, in company with John Hart, he renmoved to Springville, Cambridge Township, and brought with them a large Stock of general merchandise, which h d to be drawn from M, onroe to Sprin-ville, forty-two niles, over roads almost impassable. In 1842 he returned to Cayguga County, New York, where, on the 7th of Juiy, he married Harriet N. Ioon, daubhter of Henrv and Rachel S. Moon, of Springport, New York. Henryvl Mon was one of a family of four children who removed fron Long Island to Cayuga County about 1790, where his father located a large tract of land, which WAS eventually divided between the clildren, the homestcad being occupied by Henry, who was born il 1-83; his wife, Rachel Stewart, to whom he was married in 1804, was born in 17w88, tend by whoml he had ten children, six sons and flour dalughters. Henry took part in the war of 1812, was higrhly esteemed as an upright citizen. and died in 18337, mourned by a large circle of relatives and friends. His widow was left with a large family of children, whom she supported by her own labor Ulltil they were table to care for themselves. She died at Aurelius, Ctayuga County, New York, Julv 2, 1861, aged sevrenty-three years. Thos. H. Mosher continued in ausiness, passing through various comniercies crises, never to be forgotten by those in business during the days of "1 wild cat" and ' red dog" moniey until 1848, when the firm of Hart & d Ifosher Was dissolved; the senior partner occupy ing tle old plaice of business. During the fall of 1848-9, 3ir. M~osher built the store occupied by blim at the present tine. In 1856, with A. S. Berry, he commenced the erection of the "' Lake '\Mills," near Sp:,ringville, and after encountering many obstacles, had it comp)leted and runining on the last dayv of the year 1857, at a cost of $11,000. In 186:5 3Ir. M\. became the sole owner of these mills, which contain three run of stone, adapted fur flouring, wheat gristin-, and coarse grain. The flour from this niill has gained a deservedly high reputtotion, not only at home but in Newt York, where he annually ships from 2000 to 2;00 barrels of his "ch oice pastry." He has been engaged in business upward of forty-two years. Since 1849 he has disposed of over $250,000 of general merchandie, annd has purchased over 430,000 pounds of wool; conimencing in 1849 at 1025 pounds, and incrcasin- in 186;; to 7900 pounds. His mill requires annually a capital of $10,000 to carry it on. Tlhis business is large, talking into consideraltion that it is tie work of one noun in a so-called " coLIntry-store.".Ir. Mosher and wife have only one child, Rachel; she attended the Monroe Female Seminary for four years, and there excelled as a student. For twelve yearrs past she has been a valuable and trusted assistant to her father it his extended business. Although Mr. 31. hbts never been a political aspirant, he has been favored with many offices at the huand.i of his fellow-citizens. Il 1844 he ably represented his constituents in the State Legislature, he was postmaster of Sprin-ville for ten ears, and has held various other positions of trust. One of the earliest settlers of Lenawee County, from. the days when the countrS was new and sparsely settled down to the present time, he has always been among the foreriost, to work for thc best interests of his county and town. Blessed with an abundance of this world's goods, he uses of his mnenns freely for all worthy objects. He is an active, successful business man, and stands high in the affections and esteem of his fellow-townsmen. JUEDGE C. A. STACE3Y, TECUMSEU. Few who are familiar with Lenawee County and its surroundings but are more or less acquainted with the history of the man. whose noble record is herewith briefly given. Consider A. Stacey wits born in Hanlilton, M1adison County, New York, January 6, 1817. His father, Consider H. Stacey, was a native of New Salem, Hampshire (now Franklin) County, 31nss., and born in 1794, on a farm near the mountains, where his ancestors had lived for a number of generations. He removed to Mladison Coulnty-, New York, where he studied medicine and practiced the profession of a physician until his death in 1840. His wife (mother of Judge Stacey) was born in Berkshire County, AUassachusetts. Young Stacey had limited opportunities of~ securing an education, compared with mans of the public men of to-dna, but those oportunities were made the most of,-a few yc'rs at the common district scho0ol and at the academy at Hanmilton were all the superstructure of his future success in life, save an inherent desire to attain a name and honorable position among his fellow-men, and a rare gift, not easily described, which intakes of its possessor a self-made mall. In August, 1836, lie removed to MIichigan, and took up his abode at Tecumseh, in this County which has been his home ever since. He was married in August, 1838, to Biss Ma ry Walker, of Broome County, New York, her parents being also nAtives of 31asacl)usetts. Seven children have blessed this union, five of whom are living, viz.- Scovel C. Stacey, a graduate of Michiian UCniversity, and lawyer; Alphbnzo D. Stacey, clerk and book-leeper; Lonna L. Staccy, wlho resides at home with her narellts; James A. 'taceiy, a Student at 3ichicban Univclrsity; and George N. Stacey, attending school, and living at home. Judg-e Stace commenced the studs of law at the are of seventeen, and with such perseverance that three years later-in April, 1837-he was admitted to the bar. This was his advent to public life, and a nost Suspicious one. The wooden railroad was then just completed, the struggle over the County-seat was elded, and the future of Lenawee looked bright; but years of bard work and earnest effort were yet required to achieve the res;ult. MlNr. StRcey was, made justice of the peace at Tecumseh, and served in that capacity four Years, until 1842. From that time onward he was not onlv a zealous co-worker with his fellowtownsmen, but the ftaitaful servant of his fellow-citizens in Lenowee Countv. Although practicing his profession, he was continunily giving of his tilne, money, and talents to acivance the interests of this commu nity. For twelity-six years be was a member of the School Board of Tecumlseh, his eldest sor succeeding him in that capacity. He was also a member of thie State Board of Education, and participated in the organization of the _INfchipan State Normal School at Ypsilanti, and in the efforts to secu e tbe erection of buildings for that institution. He was prosecuting attorney for several consecutive terms prior to 1848, and spared neither friend nor foe when the public good was involved. For twelve! cars he served his constituents as judge of probate, commencing his duties in 1845. Beside all his varied (official duties he has practiced his profession il this Counts for upward of thirtv -six years, bas interested hin-iself in the upbuildinX, of his oxn township, and shared in enterprises callculated to benefit the County. As a member of tie Democratic party, lie took a prominent part in its campaigns; during its dominance he was the "1 war-horse," of the County, find being an able speaker on the stump, lie did efficient service. But he was not a pro-slavery man,-his symuathies were always with the poor and oppressed,-and nore than one fugitive from Southern thrl*Xdom has reason to bless him for aid rendered theni while traveling the underground road front slavery to freedom. As a lawver he ranks as one of the ablest in the County. He is a vigorous reasoner, able debater, quick in perception, and versatile' in natural talents. In social life he also wields a large influence. The ripples which circle off from his endeavoring break on shores beyond his b eatrincr. The unconscioiis power of anv man, even of one whose life is narrowed to the channel of a single outgoing, is very great. Bilt the sublject of this sketch is one not so limited,-his is a mind not hedged in bv tle artificial confines and the busy routine of society. Pre-eminent in his callilt-, bh is Yet enabled to outreuch it, and find an intelligent slmpathyv with humanity. He has a bost of friends; possessing personal qualities that endear him to a large circle of intimate acqualintances, and have earned fo~r l] im the r elect and esteem of the wthoele conmunity. His warm-hearted sympathy and his friendly counsels give him an ease of U}pproacb, even to the most humble. High and low, ricih and poor, receivc alike of his courteous treatment. To the poor especially he was a alwasa il " friend in need;'" and in tie hearts of many such will he be held in loving remembrance. It is not attemped to analyze the mental cliaracteristics or moral qunlities of Judge Stacey, nor would sbch a portrayal, however ftaithfull- drawn, cornpass the estinate of his most intimate associates. It is not too much to say, however, that his nature contains no atom of asceticism, and very few are fully aware of the busy and energetic life he has led slaid still leads in the line of his daily walk and labors. In personal appearance the Judge is about the medium height, with light-brown hair, and an intelligent, expressive countenance, every lineament of which is an index to) the force of character that marks the man. A sprinkling of gray in his hair, and the lines that miark the lofty forehead, tell of advancing years; but the strong voice and undimmed eve bespeak future usefulness. The portrait of the Judge may be seen among the pages of this 5work devoted to the " Representative Men of Lenawee County." It is not the purpose of this brief sketch te speak of errors or faults, fronm which nlo mlan is altogether free, but in this instance no conmmendation is given to which he is not justly entitled. It is much that any mlan his so liv ed as to have earned the respect and love of a whole comlnlUnit7; and it is a goodly tring toy have so lived and labored among his fellow-men? during many ve'ars, that now, throughout Lenawee County, there dwells no well-wisher of its prosperity who does not bope for a long continuance of his usefulness. HO-N. J. K. BOIESY HuDsoN. John K. Boies was born December 6, 1828, at Blandford, in the motlntainous region of Western Matssachusetts. His father died when he was quite Vourly, and his mother soon after sold the mountain farm and moved -1 _ __ __ _ ___ ___ ____ _

Page  19a PERSON A L STKETC HES. 1;1 I i i I i i i I i I i i L - - _ __ ___ ___ __ to Westfield, a thriving village in the Connecticut River valley. There his boyhood was spent, attending school winters, and, after he became fourteen years of age, working for farmers in neighboring towns during the summers. His youthful ambition had been to acquire a collegiate education, and hearing of the advantages and facilities of " Oberlin," he came there and entered that college in the spring of 1845. He remained there until November of the same year, when he came to Hudson, Mich., to visit his brother, Henry M. Boies, then established in the mercantile line at that place, but now in Chicago, of the wholesale grocery house of Boies, Fay & Conkey. Hudson was then in embryo, but, with the railroad recently completed to it, began to show signs of becoming a prominent point of traffic for a large region of country. Solicited to remain and engage in business with his brother, and attracted by the novelties of pioneer life in the new country, after a short experience as clerk for his brother he was so well pleased with it that he concluded to make Hudson his home and give his attention to business. Since that time he has been engaged in commercial pursuits, and identified with the interests and welfare of that place,-dealing largely in merchandise, buying extensively of wheat, wool, and the other products of the country, besides having large interests in real estate. In 1856, with his brother and Nathan Rude, he established the " Exchange Bank" of Boies, Rude & Co., which, still in the same proprietorship, has deservedly enjoyed the confidence of the community as a sound financial institution. He has twice been President of the village of Hudson. For four years he was a member of the State House of Representatives,-the last two years being Chairman of the Committee on Banks and Incorporations,-and for two years a member of the State Senate. In the latter body he was Chairman of the Finance Committee; and used his influence in that position against lavish appropriations and in favor of retrenchment in expenses and reduction of tarxes. He was the author of the law providing for the application of surplus funds in the Treasury to the payment of unmatured State bonds, under the provisions of which over a million of dollars of State indebtedness not due, including nearly the entire war debt, has been paid off and interest stopped. It was said of him, as a legislator, that he was "honest, clear-headed, and sagacious." He was appointed by Governor Baldwin in 1871 a member of the State Board of Control of Railroads, which position he now holds. He has been an adherent of the Republican party since its organization; and was four years member of the State Central Committee, and President of the State Convention held at Detroit for the nomination of State officers, in the fall of 1870. He has always been interested in the educational and moral enterprises of his locality, and contributed towards each of the seven church edifices of Hudson. Is at present serving on the School Board of said place. Mr. Boles was married October 22, 1852, to Sarah Amelia Spear, of Hudson, a most estimable lady, with whom he lived in the happiest of relations until her decease, on the 2d of January, 1871. He has three children,-his oldest daughter is now attending Olivet College, the other daughter and son are students at the public schools of Hudson. AUGUSTUS KENT, President of the village of Hudson, was born in Derry, N. H., November 6, 1820, and is the son of Richard Kent, born at Newburyport, eMass., in 1786, who moved to New Hampshire when fifteen years old, and in 1835 removed to Michigan, settling in Logan (now Adrian) Township, where he died in 1867. Augustus, being fifteen years old when he came to Michjgan, remained with the family, working on the farm until he was twenty-two. In 1845 he went to Pittsford, Hillsdale County, where he commenced on a new farm. In 1848 he married Fanny A. Day, of Pittsford, and daughter of Samuel Day. Mr. Kent remained on the farm until 1865, when he moved to Hudson, and soon after engaged in the shoe, leather, and harness business, his store being located on Main Street, near Comstock's Hotel. He is one of the pioneers of Michigan,one who entered into the earnest work of bringing Southern Michigan from its natural state to what we find it to-day. NOAH K. GREEN, MEDINA. In writing the biographies of the oldest pioneers and most prominent men of Lenawee County, a link would be missing, the chain incomplete, should we omit a sketch of the life and services of the gentleman whose family and personal history we now give in the following lines. Noah K. Green dates the origin of his family in this country to Henry Greene, who, with his wife and three of his brothers, came from Greenwich, England, to America about the year 1629, in one of the eleven vessels whose passengers founded the memorable colony of Salem, Massachusetts. The name of this family was formerly written " Greene," but the final "e" has been dropped by most members of the family since the commencement of the present century. Henry and his wife, spoken of above, were blessed with eleven children, among whom was Henry Greene, Jr., the second son, who married Juda Gile, and by whom he had eight children, one of them being Hezekiah Greene, the grandfather of the subject of this biography. Hezekiah was born in Windham County, Connecticut, November 12, 1733, his parents having moved to Connecticut from Massachusetts a number of years before. Hezekiah, in the year 1755, married Alice Leavens, of Windham County, who was born August 13, 1782, and by whom he had eight children. He continued to live in 'Windham County, following the calling of a tiller of the soil, until about 1780, when with his family he emigrated to Berkshire County Massachusetts, where his wife, Alice, died in the year 1796, and where he also died in the year 1826, at the advanced age of ninety-two. One of their children, Alice, married Bezar Whitman,and their son, Marcus Whitman, born in the year 1800, after being educated as a physician, was sent in company with Rev. H. IH. Spaulding and wife as missionaries, under the care of the American Board of Missions, to the Oregon Indians. From a sketch written by Mr. Spaulding in regard to this mission, and published in one of the leading papers of the country, we make the following extract. He says, is My wife and Mrs. Whitman were the first white women that ever crossed the Rocky Mountains;" and this was I some six years earlier than Fremont, the celebrated Pathfinder, crossed these mountains on the same trail. Eleven years later Dr. Whitman and wife were killed at Waulatpa, near Wallawalla, at the time of the Indian massacre at that station. Hezekiah, before mentioned, was cousin to; General Nathaniel Greene of Revolutionary fame,-a prudent and brave j general, the hero of many battles, one of the most distinguished sons of the Revolution, and a personal friend of Washington. Noah, father of the subject of this record, and son of Hezekiah, was born on August 20, 1761, in Windham County, Connecticut, where he lived, working during his boyhood days on his father's farm, until the I wrongs inflicted upon the oppressed people of the American colonies were too great to bear; and when they rose in their might be, although scarcely in his teens, joined the Connecticut State troops, and as a private soldier j served honorably and faithfully to throw off the yoke of bondage imposed by the British king. After our freedom from British rule had been gained, he emigrated with his parents to Berkshire County, Massachusetts, where he lived the life of a good citizen, serving the people faithfully for twentyone years in succession as justice of the peace, and representing them three times in the Massachusetts Legislature. In 1791 he married Becca Converse, who was born in 1769, in Windham County. She died in 1803. This union was blessed with three children, but only one lived to manhood, viz., Oren, who was born in 1792. He followed his father's calling, farming. In 1820 he married Sarah Loomis, of Ontario County, New York, she being a sister of Elisha Loomis, who went with the first missionaries, under the care of the American Board of Missions, to the Sandwich Islands. Oren was on board the ill-fated steamer Erie, which was destroyed by fire on Lake Erie on the 283d of August, 1841, and with many others suffered death. In 1804 Mr. Green married his second wife, Sarah Davis, of Windhamn County, the mother of Noah K. Green, the subject of this record. She passed from this life to the better world and eternal life in 1815. In 1817 Mr. Green married his third wife, Miss Betsy Harwood, of Hampshire County, who was born in 1790. The results of this marriage were Harriet F., Cutler L., and George H. Harriet F. and Cutler emigrated to Wisconsin, where they reside at the present time. George H., developing a talent for study, attended Hamilton College, New York, where he graduated with high honors. After graduating he went to Mississippi, where he engaged in teaching, and where, at Raymond, in Hinds County, he died in 1850, when but twentytwo years of age. Mr. Green, by his three wives, became the father of fourteen children, but five of whom lived to mature age. Noah K. Green, the subject of the following sketch, and the son of Noah and Sarah Green, named above, was born in Berkshire County, Massachusetts, on the 24th of December, 1808. He passed his early days on his father's farm amid the rugged hills of Berkshire County. Availinghimself of the few advantages which the common schools of his early days afforded, he by close application gained a fair education, which, together with those precepts that his parents taught him while young, contributed largely to fit him to take that position in private society and the important part in public affairs that he has since filled. In November, 1834, he married Miss Esther E. Baldwin, of Berkshire County, Massachusetts. At this time the tide of emigration was setting strongly toward the West, and Mr. Green determined to seek a home in Michigan, and closing up his business, he in the following spring, with his wife, moved to Medina Township, Lenawee County, where he was to make his future home. Here Mr. Green bought land in the wilderness of woods, which he commenced to clear, and upon which he erected a rude log house, that served him and his family as a home for many years. The rising generation can hardly realize the many discouragements and various privations which the early pioneers met with. Sickness, and the want of the common necessities of life, visited the households of the early settlers day by day, and long and arduous has been the work of the pioneers of Lenawee County in bringing the forest-covered land, upon which they settled at an early day, to its present high state of cultivation. Mr. Green commenced work in his new home with an earnestness and untiring industry which overcame all obstacles, and brought in after-years its own reward, a fine farm and a happy home. He added to his first purchase various lots of land, until he has at the present time (January, 1874) four hundred and eighty acres of land, nearly all of which is under a high state of cultivation, and gives excellent crops of all kinds. On the farm where Mr. Green resides, a view of which is given elsewhere in this work, there are hundreds of maple, walnut, white willow, and elm-trees, that have been set in regular rows along the fences, and which give a pleasing variety to the scenery and shade to the fine herds of stock with which his farm abounds. He has a comfortable house, and his farm is supplied with improved laborsaving machinery and other conveniences of a modern enterprising farmer. Four sons have been born to Mr. Green, viz., Oren E., born November, 1835; Noah T., October, 1837; George D., February, 1842; and Henry E., November, 1849, all of whom are enterprising and successful business men. Mr. Green has held many offices of public trust, and the highest expectations of his constituents have been fully realized in the part he has taken in all measures relative to the public good. For thirteen years, between 1848 and 1861, he was supervisor of Medisa Township, and during the sessions of the Michigan Legislature of the years 1850, 1861, and 1863, he was one of that body, and as a sound reasoner and good! counselor on public affairs, was held in high esteem by his fellow-members. When the dark cloud of rebellion settled over the land, and the life of the republic was in danger, foremost among the patriotic men of Lenawee County stood Noah K. Green, and with his generous contributions, loyal zeal, and social influence, he imparted courage to those who went forth to uphold the flag and maintain the country's honor. When the smoke of battle hid the IOld Flag" and its defenders from loyal loving eyes, and the months lengthened into years, and the earth drank deeper and deeper of the blood of her gallant sons, with hopeful words and open hand he went forth among his neighbors, cheering the despondent, caring for the widowed, and sympathizing with the wounded. His were words and acts not recorded 'mid the stirring scenes of battle, but engraved upon the Master's tablet, approved by the Great Captain, and remembered for aye by the recipients of his kindness. A look at Mr. Green's portrait, which may be seen elsewhere in this work, shows a countenance full of intelligence, indicating firmess of purpose and energy of character. In all the relations of public and private life, Mr. Green has lived a respected citizen. He has discharged every duty that devolved upon him with the strictest fidelity, and stands among the foremost of the most respected and prominent men of Lenawee County. 'May the example of such men encourage others I may it increase respect for small beginnings, and serve as a guide to those who would live respected and die regretted I 5 ELIAS J. BALDWIN, SENECA. The ancestors of Mr. Baldwin were of English descent, and settled at Woburn, Mass., in the seventeenth century; of their immediate descendants there were four sons, one of whom remained on the old homestead in Woburn, while the others went West and South. Samuel, grandfather of the subject of this sketch was born July 28, 1743, married Millicent Cutler, and died July 9,1826. He was a prominent man in his day, and raised a large family of children, of whom Anna and Samuel, born respectively in 1764 and 1776, both died in Riga, New York. Jonas C., the eldest son, born in 1769, was the founder of Baldwinsville, N. Y., and died there in 1825. Ephraim, father of Elias J., was born in 1771; married Triphena Moore, of Stillwater, N. Y., in 1795, and died June 28, 1839, at Windsor, Mass. Mrs. B. was born August 17, 1776, and departed this life July 20,1811. Cyrus was born in 1773, and died at Atlas, Mich. He was a prominent physician in Baldwinsville, and settled i in Macomb County, Mich., in 1836, where, with his saddle-bags, he went | among the poor settlers as a healer, without fee or reward, through the sickly season of that early day; "sA good man and a Christian" is his, appropriate epitaph. Of the remaining children, Lydia, Millicent, and j Lucy, born in the years 1775, 1777, and 1780, none are living,-Lucy, the youngest, having died in 1869. Elias J. Baldwin, the oldest child of the above-named Ephraim and Triphena B., was born at Windsor, Berkshire County, Mass., July 14, 1798. Of his four brothers and three sisters, but one brother and two sisters are now living; of the latter, one is the wife of Hon. N. KE. Green, of Medinn, the other (since deceased) the wife of Simon D. Wilson, of I Morenci. Born and raised on a farm, he was put to work at an early S age. He had a common-school education, and was designed to go to colI lege, but feeble health prevented its consummation. He began teaching when he was but nineteen, and taught the " young idea how to shoot' for several winters. In his younger years he had a decided taste for the military, and " trained" from 1816 to 1828 in the militiaof his native, State, in the grade of orderly sergeant. In 1821 he married Miss Olive i Paxne, also a native of Massachusetts. Shedied July 25,1857. Before leav-; ing Massachusetts he also served for several years as town clerk, selectman, and justice of the peace. To preserve the peace and administer justice seems to run in the Baldwin blood, for as far back almost as the birth of the nation his progenitors held such offices. His grandfather was a surveyor, and had set his mind on having Elias follow the same calling; on his death-bed he solicited and obtained a promise to that effect. Accordingly Elias studied and practiced surveying for over twelve years in his i native State, which he left in the fall of 1834, when he came to Michigan, and settled in Seneca Township, on land which still embraces his farm and residence. In common with our other early pioneers, he passed through the trials, privations, and hardships incident to the new country, -nearly died of ague,-but finally came off conqueror. His log house was replaced by a substantial frame one, and his land changed from nature's wilds into fertile fields, yielding tribute to his persistent effort. Since then he has seen the red man retire, his place being filled by men of enterprise from the Eastern States, and the beautiful village of Morenci has sprung up on the borders of his farm. Mr. B. was again married April 5, 1859, to Miss Nancy Ingersoll. Mr. Baldwin has led since he came to Michigan, as before that date, a very active life,-crowded full of official as well as private duties. He was moderator of the first township-meeting held in Seneca Township; has served as justice of the peace and supervisor of his town for over fourteen years, and was chairman of the board one term. In 1851 he was elected to the State Legislature, and served the first term after the adoption of the Constitution of 1850. During the war he was an enrolling marshal for the town of Seneca, and that he faithfully performed his duties the quotas filled and sent out bear witness. The patriotism of Mr. B., who has lived through three wars,-that of 1812, the Mexican War, and the Rebellion,-is undoubted. Politically he was a Whig, until the formation of the Republican party, of which he is an adherent, and most of his official honors have been thrust upon him, unsought, while zealously supporting that party. He has reared a family of nine children,all living but two,-the three youngest having been born in Michigan. Of his five daughters, all but one are married, his eldest to Mr. F. W. Butler, of Morenci. Mr. Baldwin has also surveyed over most of the south part of Lenawee County, beside carrying on a large farm, which embraces two hundred and eighty-five acres, beautifully situated on both sides of the Tiffin River, just south of and in the outskirts of Morenci Village, Seneca Township,-as fine a homestead as can be found in Lenawee County. He is now seventy-five years old, and says he feels very lazy; yet, "by their fruits ye shall know them," is as true to-day as when uttered by the Saviour nearly two thousand years ago. GEORGE C. HARVEY, ESQ., PALMYRA. Among the honored list of pioneers of Lenawee County whose genealogy and life we chronicle in this volume, we deem it, indeed, befitting to connect the name of George C. Harvey, Esq., of Palmyra Township. He can trace definitely his ancestry only to grandparents, yet family tradition runs them back to English origin. His grandfather, on the side of his father, was David Harvey, and on the side of his mother, George Crane. Both grandsires were born at Taunton, Mass.; and there each, also, grew up, married, reared families, and finally died at an advanced age. Mr. Stimpson Harvey, father of George C. Harvey, was born April 80, 1780, and in the year 1806 gave his hand in marriage to his life-long I *i - _ _

Page  19b 19m P:ER S O NAL. S KIET C HE S. t — I - - - school-mate, Miss Polly Crane. For four years after this union of hearts and hands they remained in the land of their birth; after which time, getting the " Western fever," they removed to Ontario County, N. Y. During this period Providence bestowed upon them two sons, the subject of this sketch, who was born December 28, 1806, and a little brother, whom they named Brazilla J., who was born September 29, two summers following. Succeeding their settlement in their new home in the State of New York, three other sons were added, viz.: David S., born August 20, 1811; Henry H. (who died in infancy), born April 20, 1817; and John C., born October 22, 1820. Here they accumulated property, and were, in general terms, prosperous and happy until March 2, 1828, the day on which that kind husband and father, Mr. Stimpson Harvey, passed from the shores of time, mourned by his widowed wife, four sons, and a vast circle of endeared friends. George C. Harvey was, at this time, in his twenty-second year. He had enjoyed good opportunities at school, and was, considering his age, pretty well qualified for business; and being the eldest son, his father's death threw the care of the family and the management of business upon him. This responsibility he continued to bear until 1832, four years after the decease of his father. Three of the brothers were now of age, and it was full time, as they thought, to "strike out" and seek their own fortunes. The query was, Where should they go? Like their father before them, they cast their eye Westward. They resolved to go and look. Accompanied by their uncles, George and Turner Crane, George C. and Brazilla J. pointed their travels in the direction of Michigan. Halting in Lenawee County, they were not slow in being enamored with the country, nor tardy in selecting a homestead from the same. Each made a purchase; and the subject of this sketch then (1832) bought the same tract of land, in a wild state, on which he still resides. His brother, Brazilla J., bought the tract still owned and occupied by his widow and heirs (he having died September 25, 1863). At this visit their stay was brief; returning to their homes at the East, to prepare to emigrate in the following spring (1833), with all movable possessions, to their future homes. The returning sunshine of joyous spring brought about the anticipated journey. And when their destination had been reached a cabin was erected upon the previous purchase of Brazilla J.; the entire Harvey family for a time settling in the same. ' In due time, however, David S. made a purchase in Ogden Township, which is still owned by his heirs (he having died July 27, 1846). Mrs. Polly Harvey (their mother) also made a purchase in Madison Township; keeping with her, upon remd to it, her youngest son, John C., who was then under age. Said John C. still resides upon the estate, it having fallen to-him at his mother's death, which occurred February 11, 1845. In the mean time George C. was "clearing" and improving his purchase; remaining "single-handed" until September 30, 1835, when he wedded Miss Rebecca Turrell. They immediately took up their abode at their forest home, and have ever since lived there, contented in mind and united in heart. Four children have blessed their fireside, two sons and two daughters. One son and one daughter still live to comfort their declining years, viz., Stimpson G. and Sarah H. The former served his country faithfully for three long years, during the late rebellion, in the 18th Michigan Volunteers. He is a ready man of business, and now serves the government as head postal clerk on one division of the Lake Shore & Michigan Southern Railroad. He has married since the war, and been presented with one little daughter (May Rebecca). Sarah H. is also married, but still resides with her parents. Nor must we omit to mention Mr. George C. Harvey's personal record. We may truly class it as of a high order: proof of which is in the trust and confidence which has been so largely reposed in him by his fellowcitizens. As an agriculturist he is practical. As a pioneer he has been vigilant, thorough-going, and fearless. Morally he is upright;.officially, economical, faithful, and just; while publicly he is enterprising, patriotic, and benevolent. He has been a servant for the people, until of late, nearly all the time since his first settlement, and only ceased when he positively declined on account of age. Besides numerous minor offices, with the exception of six scattering years he served as supervisor of his township from 1840 until 1862, and was chosen in 1850 as one of the delegates from his County to the Convention which revised the Constitution of Michigan. Let us ask, then, Has he not an honorable record? and has he not a laudable genealogy? Do not the families named belong to the selfmaking element of our country? Is not such an example worthy of remembrance and even of imitation by the generation yet to be in Lenawee County? A view of his residence, and a portrait of himself, can be found on other pages of this Atlas. ORRIN BAKER, FAIRFIELD, was born in Palmyra, New York, February 21, 1801. His parents emigrated from Massachusetts in 1799, and settled in Wayne County, N. Y., the county then being new, and opportunities for education limited. The only select school he ever attended was an evening grammar-school one winter. In 1832 he moved with his family to the Territory of Michigan, and erected the third house that was put up in the present town of Fairfield. In 1836 he was appointed postmaster of the first office established south of Adrian, in Lenawee County, which he held for eighteen years. His first wife died in 1829; his second marriage occurred in October, 1831, to Melinda Foot, who survives him, residing upon the homestead. a fine view of which may be seen among the Fairfield illustrations. He was a member of the Society of Friends, strictly adhering to their principles, a man of sterling integrity, and beloved by all. He lived to accumulate a handsome property, and departed this life January 30, 1871, being nearly seventy years of age. Portraits of this honored pioneer and his worthy relict may be seen on page 29. GEORGE W. WESTERMAN, ADMIAN. Captain George W. Westerman was born in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, in 1882, and at the age of seven years moved into the country, and became a farmer-boy. Here he attended the common school, making such improvement of his time as to be able to commence the important work of teach ing at the age of eighteen. For seven years he taught during the winter, thus laying the foundation for that peculiar knowledge of human nature so necessary for a public man. On the 20th day of October, 1852, he was married to Miss Catharine Scott, and in April of the following year he moved to Michigan, and purchased a farm, which he still owns, in what is now Riga Township. During the years following he was elected to each of the different offices in the township, the duties of which he discharged with such acceptance on the part of the people that, in 1859, he was elected to the important office of supervisor, which position be held until the breaking out of the War of the Rebellion, when he resigned his office and with it the pleasure of an association with his brother officers, and the still dearer ties of the home circle, to engage in the active duties of war as a private soldier. Upon receiving his resignation, the Board of Supervisors adopted and ordered to be inscribed upon the journal the following resolutions, which passed by a unanimous vote: | Resolved, That we tender to our friend and brother supervisor, George W. Westerman, who has volunteered to fight the battles of our country in the support of the Constitution and the Star-Spangled Banner, our best respects for his kind and gentlemanly deportment while in discharge of his public duties as a member of this Board. " Resolved, That we view his departure with mingled emotions of regret and pleasure,-regret, to be deprived of his valuable counsels, and pleasure, that he possesses that degree of patriotism that induces him to leave the endearments of home and family circle, and his numerous friends, and share in the dangers and fatigues of military life. Our best wishes go with him. II I Mr. Westerman joined the 14th Ohio Infantry in the fall of 1861, the regiment being then in the field in Kentucky. The second day after his arrival he participated in the fight at Wild Cat Mountain, and subsequently in the battles of Fishing Creek, Pittsburg Landing, Corinth, etc.; and was promoted from the ranks to the esponsible position of regimental quartermaster in March, 1862, which rank he held for more than a year. In 1863, while on the march, his train was attacked by rebels, and while gallantly defending his position, his horse fell on and completely rolled over him, breaking several of his ribs, and thus rendering him hors du combat. He remained with his command for some time, but was finally discharged for disability, and returned home to his family. In 1865 he was re-elected supervisor, and held that position until 1866, when be resigned it to accept the office of County clerk. In January, 1867, he entered upon the duties of his office, which he held for three successive terms, at the last election running ahead of his ticket. The Captain is now President of the " Odd-Fellows' Mutual Relief Association of the State of Michigan." He now resides in the city of Adrian, with his family, admired by a large circle of friends and enjoying the well-merited rewards of an honest and industrious manhood. COLONEL SYLVESTER B. SMITH, ADRIAN, was born in Raisin Township, on the 19th day of September, 1832. He lived on a farm until he was sixteen years of age, attending a common school, where he stood at the head of his class, especially excelling in mathematics. He also attended the Adrian public school for nearly a year. He taught school two winters, teaching his first term when he was but seventeen years of age. He early manifested an aptitude for mechanics, and engaged to work at the cabinet-making business, without any previous apprenticeship. At the age of twenty-one he engaged as a bookkeeper in the city of Adrian, and in 1855 he moved to Morenci, where he officiated as general clerk and book-keeper in a dry-goods house, and afterwards in the same capacity in a hardware store until the breaking out of the war. During his stay in Morenci he served as town clerk and as justice of the peace. In the fall of 1861 he joined the Union army, as captain of Company F, 11th Michigan Infantry Regiment. He served in that capacity until August, 1862, when he received a commission as major, this being the first promotion from the line to a field office in the regiment. On the 31st of December of this vear he received a gunshot wound in the lower jaw, the ball passing through and shattering the jaw, coming out at the I side of the neck; this was at the battle of Stone River. On the 7th of I January the Major was promoted to the rank of lieutenant-colonel, but the wound received at Stone River disabled him for active service, and on the March following he resigned, preferring a private life to his rank in the Invalid Corps. Through all the marches, skirmishes, and engagements of the regiment, the Colonel bad been with his command, ever at his post, brave and zealous; and, the Invalid Corps presenting no attractions, he returned to Seneca. The dust and cloud and smoke of battle were exchanged for the quiet of home; but the Colonel was not destined to be ' let alone." In the spring of 1863 he was elected supervisor of the township of Seneca. In the fall of 1864 he was elected sheriff of Lenawee County, and served in that capacity for four years, being re-elected in 1866. In 1870 he was honored with the office of County treasurer, which position he now holds, having been re-elected in 1872. He is also Chairman of the Republican County Committee. In September, 1864, he was married to Miss Mary Norton, of Morenci, Michigan, by whom be has two sons, Ernest and Louis. In addition to his other duties, the Colonel is interested in the hardware store of the firm of Todd, Smith & Jewell, of Adrian, whose reputation as hardware merchants is thoroughly established in the County. |r COLONEL RICHARD A. WATTS, ADBI, z the subject of this sketch, was born in Mercer County, Ohio, in 1888, where he lived until his nineteenth year on a farm. He attended school winters, but the duties of the farm debarred him of the advantages of schools during nine months of the year. In 1856 he came to Michigan, with the purpose of securing an education; and by practicing the strictest i economy and industry, teaching district school winters and laboring during vacations, he graduated with honor at Adrian College. On the 16th of April, 1861, the Colonel left college and enlisted as a I private soldier in the 1st Michigan Infantry. He remained with his j regiment until the first battle of Bull Run, where he received a severe { wound, being the first soldier from Lenawee County wounded in the War of the Rebellion. During the time he was recovering from his wound be continued his studies, graduating in June, 1862. He immediately re-enlisted in the 17th Michigan Infantry, and was commissioned second lieutenant in Company A. The Colonel served with his regiment until the spring of 1864, and waS present at every battle in which his command participated. On the 12th of May, 1864, at the battle of Spottsylvania, his regiment was surrounded and captured; Colonel Watts (then holding the rank of adjutant) refused to surrender, and seizing the State colors in his own hands, he rallied about twenty of his regimentmostly Adrian boys-around him and cut their way out, capturing and bringing out with them about an equal number of rebel soldiers, among whom was the general commanding the rebel brigade that surrounded them. On the next day after this battle Adjutant Watts was detached for duty on the staff of General Hartranft, the present Governor of Pennsylvania, in which capacity he continued to serve until the close of the war. Of the esteem in which Colonel Watts was held by his commanding officer the following is a sufficient guarantee: " HEABiQUARTm IsT Bria., 3D Drr., 9TH A. C. " WSear Petersburg, Va., June 21,1864. " To whom it may concern: lt Lieutenant R. A. Watts, aid-de-camp on my staff, is a most worthy officer. He was in every engagement in which this corps has partici. pated since the beginning of the present campaign up to the 1 7th instant, when he was severely wounded in the shoulder. His daring bravery and gallant conduct on the numerous fields of action have won for him the love and admiration of all who know him. Any attention that can be shown him by the Medical Department, and by those with whom he may be associated during his illness, will be duly appreciated by me. " J. F. HARTRANIFT, " Commanding Brigade.f During the war Colonel Watts was wounded in five different battles; the first time being at the first battle of the war, and the last time at the final storming of Richmond and Petersburg, which was the last real battle of the war; and he was three times promoted by the President of the United States for gallant conduct on. the field of battle. During the summer of 1865 Colonel Watts served as assistant adjutant-general of the post at Washington, which had charge of the Lincoln conspirators, from which duty he was discharged in the following fall. After his discharge he returned to Adrian, and commenced the study of law in the office of Hon. Andrew Howell. In the summer of 1866 be was appointed Assistant Assessor of Internal Revenue for the First District of Michigan, which office he held until it was, annulled by Congress in May, 1873. As his official duties would allow, he continued to read law, and was admitted to the bar in 1869. In 1871 he formed a partnership with his law preceptor, Mr. Howell, since which time-1e has been and still is in the active practice of his profession. Fhor the years 1871 and 1872 Col. Watts held the office of city attorney by appointment of the Common Council of the city of Adrian. COLONEL R. B. ROBBINS, ADRIAN. I Colonel R. B. Robbins, the subject of this sketch, was born in the State I of New Jersey, where, from the time he was old enough to hold 04 -plow until sixteen years of age, he worked on a farm, He was the naprenticed to a blacksmith and learned that trade. Believing that the West was the place for a young man, he strapped his worldly effeta on his back and started afoot and alone for the then distant State of Oblo. Having been deprived of the advantages of an education (being at thai X time unable to read or write), and keenly appreciating its necessity, he-: entered the school of the Rev. Samuel Bissell, at Twinsburg, Ohio; ftt which place be stayed about five years, paying his way by his owa manual labor. In the fall of 1853 he landed in the village of Palmyr_ in this County, and tpent the winter in teaching writing and- -reading Blackstone. The spring following he went to Tecumseb, and entered the law office of Stacy & Wood; making his home with Dr. Hamilton, and X doing chores to pay for his board. Subsequently be moved to this city, | and for some time wrote in the probate office of the Hon. C. A. Stacy, then judge. The Hon. P. C. Beaman succeeding Stacy as Judge of ProI bate, Mr. Robbins remained in the office as clerk, devoting all his spare time to his legal studies, and was finally admitted to the bar as attorney, etc., May 2, 1859. In 1860 he was elected justice of the peace in this city, and was engaged in the active discharge of his duties when the War of the Rebellion broke out. Believing that the country needed his services, he obtained a second lieutenant's commission from Governor Blair, with authority to raise a company for the 4th Michigan Cavalry, then organizing. He raised his company, and was mustered ino the Unid States service as captain August 13, 1862, and went at once with the regiment to the front. He participated in over sixty engagements and skirmishes, including the hard-fought battles of Stone River, Chickamauga, and Mission Ridge. At Shelbyville, while leading a charge, he had hi} horse shot under him, and was complimented in general orders for gallant conduct. He was promoted to major August 23,1868, and continued on duty with his regiment until May 18, 1864, when, at the head of his battalion in an engagement near Kingston, Georgia, his left arm was shattered and rendered useless by a Mini6-ball. Being at the time some A three miles in advance of the main line of battle, and becoming weak I from the loss of blood, it was with the greatest difficulty that be reached a point of safety within the Union lines. After spending some time;in the hospital, and being permanently dlisabled for active duty, be was detailed as a member of a general court-martial, then sitting at Jack-son in this State, and was subsequently made commander of the camp in that city, and remained on duty until the war was over. On the 18th of I March, 1865, he was made lieutenant-colonel by brevet for 1' gallant and meritorious services in the action near Kingston, Georgia." While on duty at Jackson be was again elected justice of ibis city, and served two terms; bis second expiring July 4, 1878. In 1872 he was elected major, by a fair majority, in one of the hottest campaigns ever held in this city. In all the various positions of trust which the Colonel has held, he has always discharged his duties faithfully and honestly. Being educated to hard labor, his sympathies have always been with the laboring class, l -Sg I

To be the devoted guardian of human life, to remove or alleviate the physical evils which afflict the race, this is the physician's divinely appointed mission; and the public owes a debt of gratitude and honor to such men as the subject of this sketch, who at the sacrifice of much that is dear to them give their lives to the work of alleviating human suffering. Dr. N. H. Kimball, of whose life we chronicle a few incidents, was born in the town of -Martinsburg, Lewis County, New York, September 6, 1823. There he lived on a farm until he attained his sixteenth year. He then went to Toledo, and for a year worked at his trade, that of a carpenter. Thence he went to Galena, I11., and continued at his trade. But during this time he bad the practice of medicine in view as his life's mission, and continued his manual labor in order to obtain the means necessary to fit himself for that profession. He left Galena in 1843, and came to Adrian, where he continued to follow his trade for three years. In 1847 he realized the 11 beginning of the end:" he commenced the study of medicine with Drs. Spaulding and Barnard, alternating his study with manual labor; and in 1850 he graduated at the Cleveland (Ohio) Medical College. He was married to Miss Abbie J. Jones, of Adrian, in 1850. Since that date he has been a resident of the city of Adrian, and, after having overcome many obstacles, now enjoys the practice of a well-earned profession, which is that of the 11 regular" school. He has made surgery a prominent feature of his vocation, in which his prominence is well conceded, and has received the appointment of surgeon for the Michigan Southern Railroad. The personal qualities as well as professional methods of Dr. K. endear him to the mass of our people, while a clear judgment, close analysis, steady purpose, and independence of action mark both his medical treatment and social intercourse. He is not ambitious for civic honors, but nevertheless has been chosen alderman for the Second Ward for two successive terms. He has a large practice, a warm heart, but a cool, self-poised character. His early physical toils and trials imparted discipline and courage, much-needed qualities in the successful physician and surgeon; and enjoying, as he does, good health, many years more of usefulness appear probable for him in the profession to which he has dedicated himself. CAPTAIN JEROMNE H. FEE, ADRIAN, the subject of the following remarks, was born in Clermont County, Ohio, in the year 1835. He left his native town and went to Cincinnati, where he engagel in the grocery business, as a clerk. He remained there but a short time, when he returned to his home and assisted his father, who was engaged in general merchandise. In 1858 he caine to Michigan, with the purpose of at tending school at Leoni College, in Jackson County; but he remained there only a short time, and upon the opening of Adrian College be came to the city of Adrian, to complete his education at that institution. When the war broke out and the call carne for volunteers to defend the nation's life, with patriotic ardor he enlisted in the Adrian Cadets, for three months' service, with the 1st M-Hichigan Infantry Regiment. When this time had expired lie returned to Adrian, and finished his college course in 1862. The Captain, nothing daunted by his previous army experience, re enlisted, selecting this time, however, a different arm of the service,-the artillery. He became a member of the 1st Independent Ohio Battery. He was with his company through all its operations in the campaigns in East and West Virginia, and finally ended his services in Kentucky. While the Captain was defending the Union he received a commission from the government as captain; and being assigned to a command in one of the newly-organized regiments of Colored Troops, he left his comrades in the battery with the good wishes of all,-accepting a more responsible and lucrative position, which called him farther west. The Captain %AS not long in his new command when his health began to fail, and in July, 1865, on account of his ill health, was reluctantly compelled to resign his office in the army and return home. His health continued to be poor for some time, but at the expiration of twelve months he had nearly or quite recovered. The Captain's life experience had taught him, no doubt, that it was not well to be alone; he therefore surrendered gracefully to Miss MAary J. Backus, of Hillsdale County, M3iichigan, in 1866. After his marriage he removed to Indiana, where for some time he was associated with his 'brother-in-law in teaching a select school. In the month of -March, 1867, Captain Fee returned with his family to the city of Adrian, and immediately after his arrival purchased an interest in the Times and Expositor. M3r. Fee succeeded Mr. Rogan, and the firm became M1essrs. Lowrie, Applegate & Fee. Several years I since the two last-named gentlemen purchased the whole interest in the * paper, since which time it has gradually increased in circulation and influence, and now claims to have the largest weekly issue of any paper in the State, outside of Detroit. Its weekly circulation is about two.thousand, and thli daily edition has a circulation of between six and seven hundred subscribers. The Times office is fitted out with presses j and type for doing all kinds of first-class printing, and its publications are all well conducted. Perseverance and talent combined have given this establishment a high rank among the successful journalistic enterprises of the State. Captain Fee was chosen, at the last re-organization, as a member of the Republican State Committee, and in the spring of 1873 he received the appointment of postmaster at Adrian, which office he has acceptably held, and now manages, in connection with the various duties of his business life. The Captain's family consists of four,-himself, wife, and two children, named respectively Harry and M3ay. In personal appearance Captain Fee is a well-proportioned man, a trifle above the medium height, with light-brown hair, full beard and moustache, and a face beaming with intelligence. Affable in his manners, courteous in bis bearing, and reliable in his dealings, he has deservedly won hosts of friends, who, with unanimity, trust he may Iong live to enjoy the rewards-the otium cum dignitate —of a successful career. ORSAMUS LAMB, ADRIAN, was born January 23, 1819, in Erie County, New York, where hi youth was passed upon a farm. In October, 1834, being only fifteei years old, he came to -Michigan, and settled on the old thoroughfare tha led from Detroit to Chicago, in what was then called Franklin Township but is now known as Woodstock. The country was almost a wilderness bears and wolves abounded, Indians were more numerous than whites and there were but few houses in the whole township. But as a pionee he bravely endured the hardships incident to a settlement in a new and undeveloped country. He made him a home, and by years of industry impelled by a laudable ambition, has not only made his way in the world but attained an enviable position among the leading self-made men ol Lenawee County. When but twenty-one years of age he wass chosen school inspector, which office he creditably filled for six years. In hi; twenty-third year he was elected justice of the peace, a position he held for twenty-six years. He was also supervisor of the town of Woodstock for nineteen consecutive years,-resigning it when he came to the city of Adrian, in 1868. But.Mr. Lamb was not to go without official honors having been chosen drain commissioner of Lenawee County, which, after six years' service, he resigned, in 1873, to accept an equally respon sible post,-that of justice of the peace. His term of office does not expire until 1877. Mr. Lamb was married March 13, 1839, to Miss Caroline Osborn, whose father was one of the first settlers in Lenawee County. Their children, four in number, are all living (except the first born) and happily married. 'Mr. Lamb is now in his fifty-fifth year, but hale and hearty, and held in high esteem by all who know him. HON. DANIEL D. SINCLAIR, ADRIAN, the subject of this brief sketch, was born the 16th of April, 1806, in the town of Broad Albin, Montgomery Cotity, New York, where he spent the first twenty years of his life, most of the time serving his apprenticeship at tailoring in Albany and Schenectady. When his time was out he, with his mother and the rest of the family, moved to the town of York, Livingston County, New York, where he did business at his trade for three years. In the yoar 1830 he removed from there to Albion, Orleans County, New York, where he remained for a short time, j then coming to Toledo, Ohio, in October, 1834, where he went into business, dealing quite largely in real estate. In 1835, after disposing of his property in Toledo, he came to Adrian, where he has been a resident and one of the representative men ever since. During the first three years in this city he carried on an extensive clothing business. In the spring of 1839 he was elected justice of the peace, which office he held for nine consecutive years. During this time he was elected County treasurer, in which capacity he served for six years in succession; and in the fall of 1848 he was elected State Senator, filling the office for one term. Soon after he returned to his home, in 1850, he was employed on the Michigan Southern and Northern Indiana Railroad, in the capacity of assistant superintendent, which place he held for eight years, under Superintendents Williams, Ashley, William H. Mloore, and James Moore. After he left the railroad, in 1858, he was employed in Pinkerton's detective force of Chicago until the fall of 1859, when le returned to his family in Adrian. He was soon after elected supervisor, which office he now holds, and has continuously held for the last thirteen years. Mr. Sinclair was married in Lockport, New York, October 2, 1834, to Miss Elizabeth Hyde. He is now in the enjoyment of good health, and is the father of five children, three sons and two daughters, all living. His eldest son, Henry H., is in the employ, as clerk, of the Adrian Car M1anufacturing Company; his second son, Edward W., is principal clerk with 31eyer Bros. & Co., wholesale druggists, St. Louis, on a salary of twenty-four hundred dollars a year; while his youngest son is engaged. in the drug business in Troy, Kansas, under the firm name of Bickford & Sinclair. His oldest daughter, MAary Elizabeth, is the wife of General jWilliam Humphrey, present Auditor-General of the State; his youngest daughter, Harriet Maria, is the wife of Thomas Applegate, firm of Applegate & Fee, of the Ad-ian Times and Expositor. iMr. Sinclair is of Scotch descent, his parents emigrating to this country in 1798, and locating in M1ontgomery County, New York. iHON. PHILO WILSON, ADRIAN, the subject of this record, was born in the town of Kent, Connecticut, -March j 29, 1809. He resided there until his eighteenth year, when he moved to Palmyra, New York, where for eleven years he owned and managed a; boat on the Erie Canal. In 1838 he came to the village of Canandaigua, | in this County, and established a general retail store, which he continued for thirty vears. He served as town clerk, and aided in organizing the township of M1edina, after which he was elected justice of the peace, and served as such for sixteen years. In 1842 he was elected to the Legislature, and in 1850 was re-elected to the same. He was chosen County judge in 1847, and remained in office four years, until the law was repealed. In 1860 he was a delegate from this State to the Democratic National Convention at Charleston, which was an important epoch in his history. Thus far his life has been crowded full of official honors and duties, and, although sixty years of age, he still enjoys unusual vigor of mind and body. RICHARD H. WHITNEY, AMRIAN, was born at Harvard, Massachusetts, in 1808, being at the time of his death fifty-nine years of age. Twenty-nine years ago last May, in the year 1838, lie took up his abode in what was then the little village of Adrian, although in August of the year previous he had paid this place a short visit. During his long residence in Adrian he uniformly held the confidence and esteem of his fellow-citizens. He was elected mavor of the city, and held the office of justice of the peace for ten years, both of which positions he filled in the most praiseworthy manner. He was a; Roval Arch -Mason, beloved and respected by his brethren of the order. He leaves, beside his widow, five sons and one daughter to mourn the death of a loving husband and an affectionate father. He bad been in poor health for two years previous to his death, and paralysis was the form of disease which proved fatal to him. In his death Adrian sus3 | tained an almost irreparable loss. One after another of the patriarchs a n are called to their long homes, and who is there among us worthy to fill t j their places? Richard H. Whitney was a man of incorruptible integ^ rity. His public career was blameless, and his private life was adorned; with all those virtues which made him the loved and honored centre of ^ an interesting and happy family circle. No man could accuse MNfr. r Whitney of having wronged him. He was the tried friend, the confldant, the adviser of the poor man, and many in straitened circumstances ~ have cause to bless the memory of Richard H. Whitney for efficient help rendered them in time of need. He was a loving husband, an indulgent f parent, a kind and faithful friend,-yet bis heart, once so warm, now lies I still and cold in death. He has gone from our sight, to the presence of 3 Hini who tries all hearts, to meet his reward. -May his survivors emuI late his many virtues H He obeyed to the letter the injunction of the poet: "So live that when thy summons comes to join The innumerable caravan, that moves To that mysterious realm, where each shall take ~ IHis chamber in the silent halls of death, Thou go, not like the quarry-slave at night, $ ~ Scourged to his dungeon; but, sustained and soothed ~ iBy an unfaltering trust, approach thy grave, Like one that draws the drapery of his couch About him, and lies down to pleasant dreams." WILLIAM WALLACE BRUCE, ADRIAN, a descendant of the Scottish heroes of that name, and one of Adrian's sterling financiers, was born near Buffalo, New York, in September, 1827. The place of his nativity was his residence until 1864. At the early age of twenty he engaged in mercantile pursuits, under his own name, and continued them very independently and successfully for four jyears, when he was elected Cashier of the Merchants' Bank of Erie County, New York, which responsible post he retained for twelve years. About this time (1864) he removed to Michigan, and located in Adrian, of which place he has since been a resident. In December, 1869, he organized the "1 Lenawee County Savings Bank," under the statutes of the State. From the opening of the bank to the present day the institution has had the entire confidence of the people of the County, as is proven in its remarkable success. He is also a stockholder and director in tb 4i Michigan State Insurance Company." For integrity, accuracy, a good sound judgment in business affairs, especially in finances, -Mr. Bruce ranks among the first in the County; and as a private citizen he is held in high estimation by all who know him. NICHOLAS VAN BRUNT, ADRIAN. Supervisor Nicholas Van Brunt, of Adrian, one of Lenawee's representative men, was born in Romulus, Seneca County, New York, the 22d day of December, 1825. In 1827 his parents moved to Vienna, and, four years later, removed to Geneva, in the same State. Geneva, pleasantly situated on the shores of one of the most beautiful lakes in America (on account of its beauty named after the farmous lake of Switzerland), was his home until he was about twenty years of age; and the scenes amid which his boyhood was passed had, no doubt, a great influence upon bis future career; for after coming to MKonroe, Mich., in the fall of 1845, he was engaged on a steamboat for a considerable time in the capacity of clerk. In the fall. of 1848 he moved to Adrian, which place has been his home ever since, although during that period he was located for a time in Chicago, and engaged in railroad work for the Cbicago and Rock Island, and Chicago, Alton and St. Louis Railroad Companies, and for a brief season was interested in the commission bisiness in that city. He then came to his family in Adrian, where, in the year 1857, he engaged in farming, which honorable calling he still follows. WThile lie tills the I soil, he furnishes others with homes and farms, being largely and well known in connection with the real estate and insurance branches of business. He was elected supervisor in the spring of 1869, and has so fitly represented his constituents that he has been re-elected every succeeding term, and still enjoys the honors of that office. He was married in September, 1851, to Miss Anna E. Wright, and has three children, the eldest of whom, Walter, is officiating in an abstract office in the city of Cleveland, while his daughter, Mary, is atteIding school at Lero, N. Y. His youngest cliild, Willard, is still at home. Mr. Van Brunt is yet in the prime of life, being- only forty-eight years of age, with the promise of many years of usefulness yet before himn j but more than half of his life has thus far been spent in Lenawee I County, where he is well known and highly esteemed both as a public nian and as a private citizen. JOHN G. MNASON, ADRIAN. In speaking of the representative men of Lenawee County, we must not overlook a personage whose name has been so well and favorably known in this section for the past thirty years, and who at the present time holds the important County office of sheriff. John G. Mason was born in the town of Richmond, Ontario County, N. Y., July 9, 1835. His earlier years were spent upon a farm in his native State. In 1840 he removed to this County, which has since been his home. He settled first in the town of Fairfield, which for fifteen years was his residence; b he then moved to the town of Ogden, where he resided up to the time of coming to the city of Adrian, in January, 1873. He was united in the bonds of wedlock February 3, 1856, to Miss Amanda D. Carter, daughter of Norman B. Carter, one of the pioneers of Lenawee County. They have been blessed with two children, both of whbom are living, and are named Glendora E. and Stella D. Mr. Mason lhas held various offices of trust, and as a steward of the people he has always proven himself " a good and faithful servant." He was elected to the office of school inspector, in Ogden Township, in the spring of 1859, which office he held for four years, to the satisfaction I] j I j i.I i II I _ _____ ___ ____ __ _ _

He served in t'titt capacity from 1865 to 1869, when be received the ap~pointment of undersheriff. After four years' ineunibency of that office be wras elected to the responsible position of slieriff, which position be yet holds. This list of honors, the gift of his friends and fellow-citizens, is a better tribute to his integrity and zeal than any. words we might attempt to write in his behalf. 31r. Maston's vocation primarily is that of a farnier; he has always lived upon a farm, and now owns a pleasantly-Lsituated and well-stocked farm in the town of 0 den. But whether engdsed in aggricultural pursuits or performing the duties of a guardian of the public weal against its criminal offenders, industry, deterniination, and sterling integrity have always markted his conduct, and brought to him the prosperity and influence he now enjoys. S. M. BABCOCK, ADRIAN, was born December 9, 1833, in Onondagan County, New York, where he remained on a farm until lie was eighteen years of age; lie then left home and came to Adrian, where he was employed for two years as turnkey of the Lenawee County jail. On the expiration of this office be returned to his native SFtate, and for two years was clerlr in a dry-goods store in the town of Jordan. In 1856 lie ret~urned to Adrian, to make it his home. His first employment was as clerk in the drug store of Re~l'Dgton rS- Niles, for a year; he then wits appointed deputy sheriff, and served for two years anicer which he again entered the dru-s store of Reeinilgton BeBnnett, and was in their employ up to the time of his en~listment as a private in Company F, 26th Mlicbi an Infantry, on the 6tb of Augrust, 1862. He was mustered into the 12th Mlichigan Infantry Regiment, February 25, 1863, as second lieutenant, which he resigrned M1aIrch 29, 1864. Subsequently be raised a company, and was mustered in as first Iieltenaunt, Company D, 30th 3liebi an Infaintry Regiment, with which he remained until June 30, 1865. Since the war be has served as policeman for six years prior to 1872, wheni he was elected marshal of the city of Adrian, which position he now holds. TI.3,10THY P. RANDALL, ADRIAN. Timotbv P. Randall, fourth son of David R. and Sarah A. Randall, was born JanUary 31, 1837, at New Fane, Niagara County, N. Y. His parents were natives of Alassaebhusetts; his father, boirn in 1806, was married in 1830, at Bennill-ton, Vt., reared a family of ten children, and in 1836 removed to New York. The subject of this sketch came to.INIieigann at the early of fourteen,-se~ttled first in Wayne County, and, in 1855, in Lenawee. In 1856 his parents removed to Wayne CountV, where tliey now reside. MSr. Randall engamed in the nursery business in Adrian for nearly nine years, having charge for five years of Berry's nursery, on the west side of the river, at that time the leadin- one in the County, and for four years more was connected with the nursery of RIC1111 dell &t Loud, until 1866, when tliey brolie up the business. In1 1864 be was elected constable of the Third Ward, and appointed a policeman. For five successive Nears be was elected street commissioner, by constantly inlcreasing majorities, until an e'?eute, growinga out of selling the engrine tearns, caused his defeat; but, after a brief retirement, he was again elected, in 1873, by a large majority, to the same off~ice, —being a virtual endorsement of his past official career by the public, whose ftaithful servant be has been and still is. That his duties have been zealously performed the spleindid condition of streets, reservoirs, bridges, find culverts bear witness. He is also an inventor, having patented a machine for sharpening horse-shoes, which has proven a practical success. Ailr. Randall was married in 1864 to MIiss Emily S. La Fevre, of this City, and a native of Nuew York, the result of which union is one child, Charles H~enry, aged six years. 3&~r. R. resides on College Avenue, where the halcyon days of his life are now being passed. LIEUTENANT R. H. BAKER, ADRIAN, the subject of the following narrative, was born November'30, 1840, in the town of Dexter, Washtenaw County, 3~lichigarn, where he remained for the first two years of his life; then, at the sad occurrence of his fatber's death, he removed with his mother to Ontario County, New Yorklr, being there about ten years, intervening~ly sypending pari of his time in MIichigan, although maikin- New York Stnte his home. In 18,53 lie removed to Adrian. He entered the high school at the age of fifteen, artd in 1859 he entered the University of Mlichimin,1 in the sophomore year; but did not complete his course, as be enlisted in the Ist Miichigan Volunteer Infantry Regiment (Compnny lL), in April, 1861. The reg~iment with which he was connected~ was the fi~rst one in uniform from west of the Allegbanies that entered WTasbirimton. After the battle of Bull Run be returned to the University,, and graduated in the classical course June, 1862, at the early age of twenty-one. But not content with bavin(- served his country once, lie re-enlisted the nionth after lie graduated, as a private in Company C, 18th M/ichigan Volunteer Infatntry, in which be remained until the close of the war, in July, 1865. But his loyalty to his country was not without its rewards: be was promoted several tim-es, to the r~ank; successively of corporal, sergeant, first sergeant, and lieutenant. He served in all the engagements in whicll his company participated, and also on the staff' of General Granger for about a year. After returning to his homie, at the close of the war, he engaged in the bat trade for about thiree years, during which time he was married to M~iss Mi. A. Beman, daughter of H-on. F. C. Beman. Their union has been blessed with one child, L. Beman, whose age is nearly three years. In 1868 Mlir. Baker was appointed Deputy Collector of Internal Revenue fotr the First District of Mlichigran, comprising the counties of Wayane, M~onroe, Lenawee, and Hillsdale. Il~e retained this position for two years and then resigned. During this time be was clerli: in the po~st-offlee at Adrian, under WV. A. Whitney,; postmaster; and in September, 1872), was appointed assistant postmaster, wh~ich position be still retains. Lieutenant Baker is a wor~thy man in the right place; fraithful to duties, courteotisiunmanners, and unassumint in his life, E Hehas manv friends, young and old, who will be alad to read of the incidents connected witb this youngr man's life. Elis career is one wortby of imitation by the youngs men of the present day, and not only illustrates the fact tliat merit will be rewarded, but that integrity, perseverrtnce, and enenwy, when brougrht to bear in the common tasks of life, will be a certain augury of success. Lieutenant Baker is a public-spirited man, taking an activ-e interest in education and all measures lookin- to the progress of the CitV and country; and we confidently expect thatt thle future years will add new honors and lustre to his already well-earned fame. JARED ANTONY VAN AUK(EN, ADRIAN, was born in Dover, Lenawee County Miebi-ian. He remained on a farm, in his native town, until be was seventeen years of age, when he came to Adrian with his father. Since that time the Counity-seat hass been his home. He was not to be satisfied with rural retirement nor the pastoral life of his boyhood; he resolved to fit himself for the more active scenes in the stirring drama of life. He accordingly attended school at Adrian Colleae for six years, graduating with the class of 1871. In the mean time, following the bent of his genius, be read law with the Hon. A. L. i-lillurd, and subsequently attended the law department of the University of Michigan, where be graduated with honor in the class of 1872. Ht~is studious zeal was early rewarded, for he was admitted to tile bar, at the Supreme Court, in April of the same year, and is now en-aged in the active practice of his profession in the oncec of A. L. Millard. f Prominent on the pages of Lenawee's future history is lik~elv to appearr the name of this 19 Antony,"' one of her advocates at the bar of Justice. JOHN W. FINCH, D.D.S., ADRIAN, a record of whose life we now give, was born in Arcadia, Wayu!ne County, New Yorkr, June 6, 1826. His boyhood was spent upon a farm. In his ninth year he moved to Orleans County, New York, where he followed the p~low, and attended school summers and winters. In 1844 he removed to WVayne County, New York~, and the three succeedingr years engaged in the dalguerreian business, teaching school winters. He was thus em i ployed until his twenty-first year,-tbhat era of independence to which all youth aspire,-wbhen he left his native State, wended his way westward to Ohio, and settled in MIedina C'ounty, where lie taugsht school the four fo~llowing winters. He spent Iiis summers in Illinois, find was a contractor on the Illinois Central Railroad; but not affiliating with the fever and ague prevailing there, he gave up the work, returned to Ohio, and resumed teaching. The summer lIfullowii - e went to WYestern Virginia, where be was employed on the Baltiniore and Ohio Railroad; but in the fall he gravitated back, not only to Ohio, but to his former Calling, and taught the same school he bad charge of the precedingr winter. During this time he became acquainted with ICIiss Frances 31. Thorp, whom lie afterwards married, in 185-5. He then went to Chicago, and for two y-ears en-aged in the grocery business. In that city his oldest son, Sherman F., was born. Hle next went to Minne —~ota, residing there duringr its first year's existence as a State, 18,57-8. The Doctor then returiied to Ohio, where lie engaged in dentistry, residing in Cleveland from 1858 to 1862, when he removed to Adrian, and established himself in his profession. Here his second son, A4rthur E., was born, February 8, 1863. The Doctor. has been quite a rover, but after a ten years' residence in Adrian he considers himself, if not an " old settler," at least settled for the future. He can be found tit his office (in tlie -Richigan State Insurance building), where he is always ready to meet his friends or any ' others suffering froin toothache, and whose decayed and offe~nding men-1 bers he extracts without pain. Althougrh be does not aspire to wear tile to-a of the senator, the laurels of the poet, or the sword of tile warrior, he may well be ranked arnong the public benefactors of Lenawee County. EDWIN COMISTOCKC, ADRIAN,, was born in Farnmington, Ontario County, New Pork,JJuiyvl6, 1816. At the age of nine years he went to Lockport, where be remained three years ppon a fa~rm.; In the year 1829 he removed to Mlichi tin, and settled in Adrian Tuwnship, which has since beci his hoi-ne.

To place before the people of Lenawee County the record of such a man as Hiram N. Fellows, and to do full justice to him and that band of pioneers of whom he is one, is no light task; for it is to such men as he that the people of this County are indebted for much that they now enjoy. In order that we may more fully appreciate the services of ourpioneerI in making from an almost unbroken wilderness what is now one of the finest and wealthiest counties in the State, and that we may know something of the trials, privations, and hardships which these men endured in the it pioneer times," we record in this sketch a brief history of Mr. Fellows,-one who knows by actual experience what our early settlers had to contend with. But little is known of the ancestors of Mr. F., further than that they were of English descent. His father, Judson Fellows, married Miss Hannah Andrews, and the result of this union was six children; all of whom are now dead except him of whom we write, who was born September 7,1818, in the town of Brutus, Cayuga County, New York. His boyhood days were spent upon the farm. At the age of seventeen, being imbued with that indomitable energy and perseverance which characterized a large number of the pioneers, and being possessed of a hardy constitution and a strong muscular organization, he severed the associations which bound him to the home of his boyhood and emigrated to what-was at that time the Territory of Michigan, locating in Medina Township, in this County. Here for a number of years he worked upon a farm by the month; and in pursuance of his cherished object, "a farm of his own," he carefully saved all that he earned, and bought land. As an illustration of what he has had to pass through in order to obtain the comfortable home that he now enjoys, we mention the freshet of June, 1886, which we presume is still fresh in the minds of those who were residents of the township at that time. After a continuous rain of fourteen days the country was nearly inundated, and the family for whom he was at work at the time got completely out of everything in the line of provisions except some dried venison. The want of the common necessities of life had visited the household many times before; but isolated as they were, and the country overflowed with water, their situation was really desperate. A family consultation was held, and young Hiram ofered to go to the nearest neighbor, thirteen [ miles away, and borrow something upon which the family could subsist until the water subsided. Arising the following morning, and breakfasting from a piece of dried venison, he started on foot. He was obliged to walk nearly the whole distance through water, which in some places was waistdeep. He arrived safely and found that the family had some flour, of which he borrowed twelve pounds, and started to return, carrying his! flour and protecting it from the rain with his umbrella, and making the round trip in one day. In 1841 Mr. Fellows was married to Miss Maria Perry, daughter of Abel Perry, Elsq., of Medina Township. They have j been blessed with four children, all of whom are now living, and named | respectively in the order of their ages as follows: Abel, Frank A., Alice M., and Ulysses.Grant. In 1851 he moved from Medina Township to Rome, and from thence to Hudson Township, where he now lives. He has a fine farm of eighty acres, all under a high state of cultivation and well stocked. In politics Mr. Fellows is a staunch Democrat; has never forsaken the principles which he believes to be the only sure and safe foundation of a free government. In closing our sketch it only remains for us to say that Mr. Fellows has the reputation of being a thoroughly honest, true, and good man, who has the confidence and respect of every one with whom he is associated. HERVEY BLISS, BLISSFIELD, son of Israel Blias, and grandson of Timothy Bliss, who settled at Roy alston, Mass., about the year 1770, was born at the above-named place in 1790. In 1814, with his brother Sylvanus, he came to the far West, and settled in Huron County, Ohio; married, in 1815, Nancy Woodbury, a native of Vermont, with whom he lived until his death, and by whom he had seven children,-six of them now living. In the spring of 1816 he removed- to what is now the city of Monroe, then a hamlet of four families, in the Territory of Michigan; and a year later, with several other families, settled on government land thirteen miles up the river Raisin, from which, in 1819, he, with some dozen other families, were driven off by the Indians who claimed the land, subsequently set apart as the((Macon Reserve." So he moved to Raisinville, three miles below, and resided there until 1824, when he moved some twenty miles up the Raisin, cutting his way through heavy timber from Petersburg, a distance of ten miles, and which was the nearest point whence supplies could be obtained, —settling on land now occupied by the village of Blissfield, of which he was the founder, and which was named in his honor. He was a t{ ruling elder" in the Presbyterian Church, which he joined in 1829. In 1827 he was commissioned by Governor Cass as justice of the peace, which office, with that of town clerk and postmaster, he held at the time of his decease, irr 1841, aged fifty-two. He left four sons and two daughters, all living. The eldest son, William W. (whose portrait appears on another page), is engaged in mercantile pursuits in Blissfield, with his oldest son, W. Irving Bliss. The younger son, A. L. Bliss, is interested in the real estate and insurance business in Adrian, in connection with Charles M. Bliss, son of W. W. Bliss. The remaining sons of I erVey Bliss are farmers, located at Deerfield and Ottawa Lake, Mich. I was a thorough student, and in his early manhood a successful teacher | and public officer. He emigrated to this County in 1830 with his wife and two children; the elder, Papira, a girl of three years, who in early maidenhood married William S. Blackmore, of the town of Cambridge, in this County, and while his wife she was taken to the better land, a wholej hearted Christian, beloved in life and lamented in death; the younger child being a bright boy, one year old, Daniel C. Blair, who in after-years became one of the leading men in Franklin, and is now a worthy, energetic, and Christian citizen of Napoleon, Jackson County. Two more children were afterwards born to him. One of them is now Mrs. E. M. Blackmore, of Napoleon, who is an active supporter of all benevolent enterprises in the village and vicinity where she resides, and an ardent worker for the interests of the Congregational Church and the cause of Christ. The youngest is named Josephine, now the wife of Charles Graves, with whom the widow of Charles Blair now makes her home, and upon whom she leans in her declining years as a substitute for the support and comfort of a kind-hearted and noble husband. As a school-teacher, Mr. Blair never whipped but one scholar, althougbh he taught in a day when whipping was the rule; and though his family government was perfect, he never struck a child of his a single I- blow. Having previously selected one hundred and sixty acres of good land in Franklin, Mr. Blair moved upon it with his family December 1, 1830, and built a log house three miles from the nearest neighbor, where he lived for several days with the house half roofed, with blankets for doors, mother earth for a floor, and the blue canopy of heaven as a shelter from the storm. On this farm he lived until the day of his death, beautifying and improving his home; an important item of which was the | building, in 1848, of the finest residence then in the town of Franklin. In this work he was greatly aided by the assistance and encouragement of his faithful wife, without whom he could not have braved and overcome the many severe trials of sickness and privation incident to pioneer life. In politics he was a Democrat of the old school, a firm believer in equal rights, and an active and earnest advocate of his political and religious views, but tolerant and charitable to the views of others. Elected supervisor of the old town of Tecumseh when it embraced the whole northern part of the County, after Franklin was organized into a separate township he was elected supervisor of the latter town for a series of years, though often a majority were opposed to him politically. In 1842i and again in 1845, he was elected to the State Legislature, and served with credit to himself and great usefulness to the community. He was an earnest supporter of the "two-thirds law,'" for the benefit of debtors, and a firm advocate of the abolition of capital punishment. In all his relations he was pre-eminently an honest man, faithful to his friends, honest and conscientious in the discharge of every duty: a noble example of that band of upright farmers of the generation just past, who left their impress upon the country's history, and made honesty and integrity the rule for the politician and statesman, instead of the exception. Every just cause had in him a generous supporter, every honest young man a warm-hearted and trusty friend. He peacefully met his death on the 28th day of July, 1852, on the farm where he first settled, and where his widow still resides, in full reliance on the goodness and mercy of God, beloved and lamented by all who knew him. His mortal remains were the first which found a burial in the new and beautiful Franklin Cemetery, and rest beneath a plain monument, bearing the expressive inscription: "His was a noble spirit, Good, generous, and brave." These extracts from private letters show the high esteem in which he was held by his intimate friends: 99 He was all that you state in your letter, and no man in the town, to my knowledge, stood higher in public esteem, or was more universally respected by all his neighbors and acquaintances. JOHN J. ADAM." II I am glad to do this much for an old, true, and noble friend. Your letter recalled to my mind his many deeds of kindness to me, when I first came to Tecumseh a poor and needy boy. His encouragement to act conscientiously and right have always left their impress upon my heart. C. A. STACY." WILLIAM WEATHERBY, JR., FAIRFIELD. William Weatherby and his wife, Relief Miller, were born in Massachusetts, in the years 1769 and 1775, and married in 1797. They came to the Territory of Michigan in 1831, when the country was a wilderness, and settled in Blissfield (now Fairfield) Township, where they died in 1835, within one month of each other. Mr. Weatherby, son of the above, was born in Manchester, Vermont, in 1813; married Sarah Carpenter, December 31, 1835; she being born in New York, in 1815. He came to Michigan with his parents, entered eighty acres of government land, comprising part of his present farm, and to which he has since added to the extent of two hundred and sixty acres. For over forty years he has followed the vocation of a farmer, in the same location, and by hard labor has established a fine farm, and erected a large house in the place of the one destroyed by fire a few years since. A view of his residence may be seen on another page. His wife is still living, but he has neither father, mother, brother, sister, or child living,-all having died since he came to Michigan. GEORGE HALL, Ju., BLISSFIBLD. Mr. Hall, while yet in his <( teens," came to Blissfield, in 1841, where and when he began his real career, upon a farm, at four dollars a month. In 1849 he bought forty-nine acres of wild land, upon which he still lives; he now has one hundred and fifty acres under fine cultivation, including ten acres of apple-orchard, and feels a true pride in having the finest in the County. His theory in regard to fruit culture is to manure high for nourishment, and never prune,-to this, and careful management, he at tributes his success. Mr. Hall is truly a self-made man, and has the respect of his neighbors for practical management and energy of character. A view of his residence may be seen on another page. ISRAEL S. HODGES, OODBN, was born June 29,1810, in Onondaga County, State of New York. Was the second son of Zebedee and Alice Hodges, and was reared to the tune of industry, both on the farm and in the saw-mill. His only schooling was in the log school-house, but by close application to study he acquired an education which enabled him to teach in the common school of his day. Observation, reading, and home study afterwards persevered in, made him a practical business man and scholar. At the age of twenty he joined his fortunes in matrimony with Miss Parmelia M. Rathbone, who is still his faithful companion. They have had four sons and seven daughters, of whom three sons and four daughters are living. In September, 1835, he emigrated with his family and small fortune to Lenawee County. Settled first in Palmyra Township. Soon after went to Hillsdale County, and remained there, farming and sawing hlmber, till December, 1850, when he returned to this County, and settled where he now lives, in Ogden Township. He is now well-to-do. Besides the responsibility of domestic and private matters, he has always taken a forward part in the support of his church (United Brethren) and in public affairs, both of his town and county,-enjoying the respect and confidence of his fellowcitizens to such an extent that he has been honored with many offices of trust. He was justice of the peace, road commissioner, etc.; for six years served as supervisor of his township, and one term (1861-2) as a member of the State Legislature. During the war he was unanimously chosen to take charge of filling the quotas of volunteers of his township. One of his sons served upward of three years in the army of the Union. A view of his residence will be found in this Atlas. SAMUEL HOPKINS, OGDEN, was born June 26, 1818, in Preston County, West Virginia. His father, Levi Hopkins, was the third- son of Rev. Samuel Hopkins, D.D., the great preacher of Revolutionary times. His father and two of his father's brothers bore a heroic part in the Revolution, one of them being a commissary. His grandfather was a cousin of Stephen Hopkins, signer of the Declaration of Independence, and a direct descendant of the Puritans. Levi Hopkins was born and married in Connecticut; was first married to Miss Abigail Stephens, with whom he moved, to improve their health, to the mountainous region of West Virginia, in 1795. Having lived there several years, his wife died, and in 1811 he married Miss Elizabeth Yantz, the mother of the subject of this memoir.' She presented her husband with four children (two sons and two daughters), of whom Samuel was the youngest. Levi Hopkins was educated, like bis renowned father, for the ministry, but decided not to follow that profession; although a pious, devout man, he chose to follow the vocation of farming. Living in so rural a district, he had poor facilities for educating his family. Mr. Samuel Hopkins married Susannah Loar in 1838. In 1855 he removed with his family and few worldly possessions to where he now lives, in Ogden Township. He has eleven children, all living. He is now a wellto-do farmer; has given his children opportunities for acquiring an education to the extent of the facilities of the district, so that those who have gone from home to act for themselves now fill useful and respectable places in society, and are successful business managers. Mr. and Mrs. Hopkins are devoted members of the United Brethren' Church. EBENEZER HARMON, MACON, was born in Phelps, Ontario County, New York, September 6, 1809. At the age of twenty-one he left his parents' roof and went to work for Luther Root, in the village of Phelps, with whom he remained nearly four years. In November,.1832, he married Miss Sally Burges, and in the spring of 1834, with his wife and child, emigrated West, and settled in the town of Macon. Mr. Harmon found his new home to be in the midst of a dense wilderness. He purchased eighty acres of land, and it may be mentioned that after buying his land, and a third interest in a cow, a yoke of cattle, and a wagon, he bad but three dollars left. He was the first person to go through on the Ridge Road from Ridgeway to Mooreville with a team and wagon. Mr. Harmon added to his farm until he had three hundred and twenty acres of land, well improved, and which he has divided among his children, retaining eighty acres as a homestead. His farm is one of the best watered in the County, having upon it several flowing wells, one of which throws its clear and crystal-like waters upward of twelve feet in the air. Mr. H. is a respected and honored citizen, a kind husband and loving father,-a man looked up to by all as a kind-hearted, public-spirited townsman. WILLIAM B. HILL, PALMYRA.

Born August 1,1834, at Leon, Cattaraugus County, he removed with his parents to this County, at twelve years of age. During the year 1849 he paid a visit to Toledo, Ohio, and there engaged as clerk in a mercantile house, for two seasons, reserving the winters to attend the public school. Experience in the employ of others, added to his privileges at school, had now (1851) prepared him to manage for himself; and from this on to 1859, in the same city, he successfully applied his energies in two successive copartnerships. December 1, 1857, he was united in marriage to Miss Exena E. Ingersoll, the fruits of which have been four children and a happy home.

All of the above children are now living, with the exception of Ernest W. and Ethel N. Mr. Blanchard's farm consists of two hundred and eighty acres of land, and such is the high state of cultivation and improvement to which he has brought it, that it has more the appearance of being a well-kept garden than a large farm. An illustration of Mr. B.'s farm may be seen elsewhere in this work. For several years he has given much attention to raising fine blooded stock, and the result is that some of his cattle cannot be surpassed in the County, if in the State Among his Durhams may be mentioned the " Duke of Hillsdale.' The fine residence, long rows of shade-trees, well-kept fences, the pleasant surroundings, all form a home that cannot be described by the pen, but which point out Mlr.

His early education was only that of the common schools, and h wealth had to be carved by his own hands in a new, wild, and uttdeveloped country, where years of toil and hardship were the prerequiiesof attaining the otium cum dignitate so much desired by all. He is an exarple of the self-made man, of which our western country furnishes si many notable illustrations, and is highly esteemed for his integrity by *all -hE om he is in any way associated.

SPEAR, SENECA, was born in Palmyra, Wayne County, New York, in 1808. His father and mother came from. Massachusetts to New York in an early day, and, pushing forty miles into the wilderness, they wrung from the-dense forest a home, where they lived and died; having in all a family of nine children, the author of our sketch being the fifth. Stephen Spear was educated in the Common school, lived with his father until he was twenty-one, and then, with the true spirit of his father, struck out on foot and alone, having twenty shillings in his pocket when he reached Lenawee County. He halted near Adrian, then in its infancy, in 1831. Here he worked out for a year and a half, and then took up one hundred and sixty acres of land. But the West furnished no helpmate, and in 1888, led by instinct as true as needle to the pole, be found himself returning to the source of attraction. It was Miss Lucinda Powell, daughter of the Rev. R. Powell, of Palmyra, N. Y. In the spring of 1834, supported by the presence and love of this excellent lady, he again set out for the new life in the new home. To exchange the culture and refinement of the East for the society of wolves and Indians was no small undertaking, but the tide was swelling, and the great West was to be made to blossom in the presence of civilization.

He went to Connecticut at the age of ten, and at the age of thirty married Miss Lucy Davis, with whom he lived until her death, which took place in her seventieth year. Mr. Wilson survived her but five years. A family of seven children sprung up around them as flowers in the wilderness, yet not like the tender plants, to wither and die. Inured to hardship, Simon D.

When Mr. Wilson came to Fairfleld (in 1884) there was but one family on the north within five miles, and on the west none under thirty miles, while on the south it was fifteen miles to -the nearest neighbor. The three adjoining townships had no white man within their borders. Wolves made the night hideous with their unearthly howling, while the yell of the savage, mingled with the strange, weird-like music of the winds, were not cheering companions for the pioneer in his log house. Yet there were bright spots and many pleasant hours amid this solitude. The music of birds, the blazing fire in the huge old fireplace, and the occasional deer brought down by the crack of the rifle, together with the frugal meal and the rehearsal of bygone days, made up a chapter full of honest joy. Mrm Wilson died in February, 1864, and Mr. Wilson was married to Miss Alcinda Hooperjn the November following.. Mr, Wilso- n ha been identified with. the educational Interests of his town, and foremost in the ranks in pushing on the car o f progress.

ALVAH HOLT, SmfzcAIn the town of Hollis, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, on. —the 17th day of Marceb 1808, while the furious wind-storm was drifting the white snow against the fences and piling it to the window-sill of'the bouse of Nathan Holt and his good wife Sybil, a faint cry came fkmro within,-it was the first effort of Alvah Holt, the subject of this sketch. Twenty-one years passed over his head, and the boy of March 17 became a man. He graduated in the old log school-house and the shop of his father. For eleven years he cut stone in Onondaga, New Yor&. In his twenty-fifth year be united his fortunes with Miss Mercy Shapley. This union was crowned with fve children, three of whom oly budded to bloom in the garden of flowers beyond the grave. Helen and Nettie are married, and live in Dundee, Michigan. Mr. Holt canie to Seneca in 1884, and took up one hundred and sixty aresaof land, two and a half miles north of what is now Morenci. There-were then only seven families within twelve miles. At Maumee Mr. H. took an Indian trail, following it to Bean Creek, bridging his way over logs and swales through the dense forests of Michigan. At nightfall he gathered the family around him, and, taking the chart that guides the traveler through the wilderness of this life, he read, and, kneeling on nature's wild, yet sacred soil, committed to God his earthly interests. Time wore on, the sunlight found its way to an open field of the first ten acres cleared; but in the midst of opening joy came the cold and clammy sweat of death. The three children, before referred to, were taken in a single week. One of them being his only son, a noble boy of twelve summers. Now Mr. Holt was left to fell the forests alone. In June, 1864, the silent messenger again entered, and took from him the companion of his manhood. Already gray hairs bad intertwined themselves in his locks, and the down-hill side of life was reached. Miss Nancy Shapley, the youngest sister of his wife, having lost her father, consented to become the partner of his joys and sorrows, and they were married in the October following. Henry Smith, a grandson of Mr. Holt, was a soldier during the 'ebellion, and took part in the battles of the Wilderness and before Petersburg, and was present when General -Grant dictated terms to the lwat rebel army under General Robert E. Lee. Henry was wounded in the hip at Fairfax Court-House. Miss Linda M. Cooper, a granddaughter, is now living with Mr. and,, Mrs. Holt, who recognize her as entitled to their tenderest sympathy and love. Mr. and Mrs. Holt are members of the Church of the UnitedBrethren, and esteem a Christian life as pointing to the life to come. Although Mr. Holt is seventy, yet he handles the organ easily, playing common church-music at sight. AMOS A.

The father remained in Sussex County until 1824, when he removed' t Canandaigua, New York,;where he purchased a farm of fifty., acreo-6-C land. Amos lived on the farm with his fatber, using the old-fashioned IMIt plow, which was then supposed to be the greatest -invention of- theage* With pride he now looks back upon those dayso6f primitive siimpli i when the bard-working farmer ate his frugal meal with a clear co_science, and wiped the sweat from his brow with the silk handkerebilef_ of the past. Amos was scarcely twenty-one years of age when es had. a. longing for more congenial companionship. He told his secret toWAs Mary Ann Hayward, and all know the result. They bade f ta-rewelto friends, and, packing their few earthly goods into a wagon, they started for the far West. For eighteen days they jogged along through the wilderness, and on the 18th day of February, 1885, reached Seneca and took up eighty acres of land. He has since purchased three hundred and twenty, and has now the premium farm, of Le-nawee County, with exwe_lent buildings. On the 15th day of SeptenxN^- I84, the sun passed unde - a cloud, and the shadow of death mantled the doorway. Mrs. Kinney, once the bright and beautiful Miss Hayward, whom none knew butto love, passed through the midnight of death to the noonday of life beyondr the river. Charles, their only son, is now in St. Charles County, Mo,. 1 1849 Mr. Kinney was married to Miss Lucinda M. Stuck, with whomfee now lives and by whom he has had three children: Margaret,-_who married Colman Youngs, in December, 1868, and whose farm joins her fatherls,-Frank, and John, aged respectively eleven and six, who Arareat home. Mr. Amos Kinney never allows a hungry stranger togo frozm htt, door, and is wide-awake to all the improvements of the day. His money is not his god. Such men are of real value to a community. RICHABD H. KINNEY, SaMSCA, was liorn December 8, 1820, married Miss Wealthy Ann Buck June 18, 1845, who died June 21,1866, leaving five children, namelyr, ra Odell, Ida, Ira, and Clarence. All are now living. M, Koineny masx ried his second wife, Miss Mary Waggoner,, une. 15, 1869, Theyl- -now live on the old homestead, a good farm of one hundred and sixty acres worth about seventy dollars per acre. Mr. Kinney is fiftyb-two.y*ears age, and his wife forty-six. With others, they have caused the mwiderness of Michigan to blossom as the rose. As "lfith with0ut workIt*1 dead," so has this life of a luxuriant vegetation been brought about3l| toil and care. I dSa _ i__ __1 _ __ ____ `71777 -1 4 "; --------— ~

In 18&2 he came to America, halting one year in Geneva, N. Y., and then, hearing the ominous words, 4 Go West, young man," he found himself in Hudson, Mich., in 1853. In 1861 he enlisted in Company F, 11tb Michigan Volunteer Infantry, Colonel Wm. L. Stoughton. Accompanied his regiment to Louisvillet thence to Bargetown, where they went into winter quarters. In 1862 the regiment tent to Nashville, Tenn., and were employed in following the notorious Morgan during the summer. In December and January following they were engaged in the battle of Stone River. They followed General Bragg to Tullahoma, fought four days in the battle of Chicamauga, where Mr. Jibb lost a brother, but came out himself unscathed. The regiment were engaged in that memorable fight among the clouds at Chattanooga, where, according to Miss Anna Dickinson, the privates left their generals and plunged into that terrible cloudy sea, wringing victory from the astonished rebels. The regiment were in numberless skirmishes, and were mustered out at Atlanta, their time having expired. Mr. Jibb received two gunshot wounds, from wbich he recovered, only to receive a wound near the heart by Miss Pauline Hewitt, of Medina, to whom he surrendered November-24,1864. They have two children, Wm. F., aged three years, and Robert B., four months. Mr. Jibb is engaged in blacksmithing at Morenci, where he is doing a good business. S. B. TREADWELL, SENECA, was born in Monroe County, New York, in 1821. He worked on the farm summers and attended school in winters, and at the age of thirteen came with his father to Adrian, Mich. He was married in September, 1848, to Miss Lydia Stephenson, by whom he had two children, Mary L. and Carrie E. Carrie died in infancy. Mrs. Treadwell died in December, 1870, and M:r. Treadwel was married to Mrs. Margaret A. Burleigh, August 24, 1871. Mr. Treadwell enlisted, in December, 1863, in the 6th Michigan Heavy Artillery, and served with that regiment till the War of the Rebellion closed. In 1853 he came to Seneca, and bought eighty acres of land on Section 28, on which he now lives. Nellie M. Burleigh, a daughter of Mrs..Treadwell, lives with them. K1S-. ROSE3 ANN GOULD, S1NBCA, formerly Miss Hayward, was born in Farmington, New York, in 1811 She was married to Mr. John Gould February 21, 1836. Mr. Gould was born October 16,1809. Two years after marriage Mr. Gould removed with his family to Michigan, and settled on Section 23, in the town of Seneca. They had two sons, Boswell James, who enlisted in the 11th Michigan, and died at Belmont Hospital April 25,1862, and David Henry, who was married to Miss Sarah A. Brower in 1866. They have two children, John, seven, and Inez, five, years of age. John Gould died May 27, 1862, having contracted a disease while caring for his son in the hospital. David Henry is on the farm with his mother, who is sixty-two years of age. They have a fine farm of one hundred and sixty acres, worth seventy to seventy-five dollars per acre. MOSES VAILE, SpecA, was born on the 25th day of January, 1801, in Dover, New York. His father and mother, John and Hannah Vaile, came to Dutchess County at the close of the eighteenth century. When Moses was fourteen years of age the family moved to Onondaga County. His early education was confined to the common schools. He was married March 28, 1826, to Miss Amanda Blowers. They commenced life, in this blustering month, on the farm, and in addition to this Mr. Vaile made fourteen hundred cradles, not for babies, but for men, during his stay in New York. Inr,1886 all hands came to Seneca, and purchased two hundred and forty acres of land on Section 6, on which Moses now resides. Eight children have blessed their home: Hiram, born March 21,1827; Delia M., in 1828; Henry N., in 1881; Helen, in 1888; Moses W., in 1836; Hannah, in 1838; Hervey, in 1840; and Celestia, in 1843; which last, as the name implies, was the crowning delight of all. Here we see first -a son and then a daughter until the number is complete. This needs no comment, the arrangement being perfect. Henry died at Victoria, Vancouver's Island, in 1863. Hervey enlisted in the 18th Michigan Infantry, and died near Covington, Kentucky, in 1862, and Moses died in infancy. Mrs. Vaile died December 17, 1868, and Mr. Vaile married Mrs. Susan Moore, of New Jersey, in November, 1864, with wbom he now lives. On the 26th of January of each year the entire family meet at the old house. Their first gathering was celebrated by a poem, composed by Hiram and read by Mr. Baker, of Baker's Corners. These gatherings are looked to by all as the choicest hours of the year. A ALBERT OAMB BRN, FaAHKLNr, was bom August 12,1828, in Wayne County, New York. His father moved to Michigan when Albert was eight years old, and bought one hundred and sixty acres in Raisin Township, but finally sold out and purchased one hundred and sixty acres in Franklin. By energy Albert obtained an education so as to teach school, which he followed four terms. On March 22, 1848, he united his fortunes with Miss Elvira German, and settled on Section 80 in 1861, where he now reside. In August, 1862, he enlisted in the 18th Michigan Volunteer Infantry, and served with his regiment for three years; first in the Army of the Ohio, then in that of the Cumberland, and finally in the Division of the Mississippi. This regiment made some of the most severe marches, and was kept constantly scouting Surprised Patterson at Pond Springs, Alabama, capturing many prisoners and camps; was in the advance at Courtland, where Patterson was again put to flight; headed off General Roddy at Athens, marched to Florence, skirmishing with Wheeler; two hundred and thirty of them were attacked by General Forrest, with four thousand men, whom they bravely held back for five hours, when but few were left to tell the tale. They were in the fight against General Hood, at Decatur, and in skirmishes without number, never showing the white feather. In 1865 this regiment was mustered out, and Mr. Camburn returned to home and family, and with energy and care has made home beautiful, gathering around him not only the necessaries, but many of the luxuries of life. HENRY TRIPP, FRANK;LIN, was born in 1784, in Bristol, England. When a young man he served in the American navy, under Commodore Preble, also in the English navy, under the great admiral, Lord Nelson; remaining until the battle of Trafalgar. In 1810 he was married to Miss Hannah Stoneham, and went to Jamaica as a Baptist missionary, where Henry Tripp, who now resides in Franklin, was born, June 28, 1819. Mrs. Tripp died in 1822, and Rev. Mr. Tripp returned to England, where he was married to Miss Elizabeth Stoneham, and was engaged in building; taking a prominent part in the agitation of the " Reform Bill" and the abolition of West India slavery, by means of which he became unpopular and lost his business, thus suffering financial martyrdom while upholding the right..In 1829 he came to America. In Cleveland he fell in with a number of Baptists, with whom he came to Michigan. His comrades, however, failed to settle in the wilderness, but turned back. This did not discourge the man of iron will, but empty-handed he shouldered his axe, and struck the bark that was to make his dwelling-place. For months the face of the dusky warrior alone was seen,-no white man passed his "log mansion in the West." It took him seven days to go to mill,-but the man who had received a medal for services in the war against Napoleon feared no danger, and readily underwent all hardships. He cast the first vote in Franklin for the Liberty party, and when the strife against slavery came, he was lost to all else but the triumph of truth and right. When Lincoln's proclamation was read to him, he expressed a desire to live till the war closed; but the shadows of death stole over him, and he awoke beyond the roar of battle. On the 19Lh day of July, 1863, this man of almost undying energy bade farewell to his family and friends. The neighborhood was in mourning,-a father had been taken from them. A family of four sons and three daughters recount the incidents of early life in Michigan, when even the days of the week were lost, and the reverend gentleman went to his appointment on Monday only to find that he had been burning brush on the Sabbath. Joseph, John, and Henry Tripp, his sons, are still living, and have enterprise enough to perpetuate the memory of the father. CAPTAIN JAMES R. CAIRNES, FRANKLIN, was born at Seneca Falls, in Seneca Countey, New York, on the 28th day of August, 1882. His father moved to Michigan when James was four years old, and died in 1840. After his father's death James worked with and for his brother, attending school during the winter season, until he was twelve years of age, when he hired out to his brother for four years. I At the age of sixteen he commenced to work at the carpenter and joiner business, which, with the exception of a short experience in milling, he has followed all his life. He now owns a fine farm, and lives more easily than by the use of the jack-plane. In his twenty-third year he married Miss Emily A. Greenleaf, by whom he has had four children: Jennie A., born June 15, 1858; Ellsworth, February 28, 1862; Nora Delle and Dora Belle, born September 24, 1871. The twins are the pride of Mhe family, although very mischievous. In August, 1862, Governor Blair sent a recruiting commission to the Captain. He assisted in raising a company, took the position of first lieutenant, and joined the 9th Michigan Cavalry at Coldwater. This regiment was assigned to General Coleman, Department of the Ohio. In the spring of 1863 they fought Everett's guerrillas, totally routing them at Triplet Bridge, Ky.; followed Morgan from Stanford to Bufflington's Island, where the most of his forces were captured. At this point Lieutenant Cairnes, assisted by Sergeants Doke and Burnett, created a wonderful excitement by marching Colonel Basil Duke and Colonel Dewitt Howard Smith, and about one hundred men, into camp, they having surrendered to the Lieutenant in the presence of the sergeants. In August, 1868, this regiment crossed the Cumberland Mountains with Burnside, where they surprised the garrison and took Knoxville, then marched to Cumberland Gap, where General Frazier, with sixteen hundred men, surrendered. During this winter they were almost constantly skirmishing with the Rebel cavalry. March 16, 1864, Lieutenant Cairnes received a captain's commission. In April, the regiment mustering only one hundred and eighty men for duty, they were sent to Nicholasville to recruit. The winter previous had been one of severest hardship; hardly a tent was pitched during the entire season. Horses died from starvation, and officers and men suffered disease, which followed exposure to the dews, fogs, frosts, and sleet of a winter in this locality. Captain Cairnes was one of the sufferers; a rheumatic fever closed in on him, and although he put spurs to his horse, yet there was no escape. He was discharged on account of physical disability January 26, 1866. He is now town clerk of the town of Franklin, and deputy sheriff of Lenawee County. GIDEON D. PERRY, FRANKLN, a sketch of whose residence is in this Atlas, was born in Palmyra, Wayne County, New York, October 25,1811. His early education was obtained in the common schools and Cazenova Seminary. At the age of twentytwo he entered the work of the ministry in the M. E. Church, and for some eleven years was a member of the Genesee Conference, receiving his appointments at Brockport, Lima, Canandaigua, and elsewhere, after the order of his church. His health gradually failing, he was finally induced to leave the active duties of the ministry, and give himself to some pursuit better suited to his physical condition. In 1843 he came to Michigan, and settled upon the farm where he no, resides, in the township of Franklin. He has been married twice,- u 26, 1839, to Miss Rebecca Buckley, of Milo, Yates County, N. Y., died December 27, 1841, leaving no issue; January 26, 1843, he was married to Mary Osborn, of Ovid, benedi County, N. Y., who is still living, and by whom he has five children: M. Alice, born November 13, 1844; Thomas O.,born February 28,1847; Maggie R., born June 16, 1850; Jennie M., born February 27, 1856; Eva A., born November 23, 1857. An object of chief concern for several years past has been to give to his children a good education. His only son has received from the Michigan University four degrees, A.B., A.M., C.E., and M.E. Mr. Perry has never been known to ask or express desire for place or preferment, but has several times received favor and evidence of esteem from the citizens of his locality. He has been justice of the peace, supervisor, Chairman of the Board of Supervisors, member of the Michigan House of Representatives, and also a member of the Michigan State Senate. CHARLES DEWEY, CAMBrIDte, was born in Concord, New Hampshire, July 25, 1823. From Concord his father moved to Hanover N. H.; in 1830, with his family, emigrated to Tecumseh, Lenawee County, and from thence to Cambridge, in 1840. In 1843 Mr. Charles Dewey, the subject of this sketch, married Miss Elvira Moulton, of Cambridge, who has blessed him with three sons and two daughters. For fourteen years Mr. Dewey was supervisor of his township; he has also been school inspector for twenty-one years, and during the years 1864-6 was President of the Lenawee County Agricultural Society. At the breaking out of the Rebellion Mr. Dewey entered the enlisting service, and put in the field one hundred and nineteen men. In 1869 he, with his oldest son, commenced a mercantile business in Cambridge, in which they are still engaged. ROBERT WOODEN. The grandfather of the gentleman named above was one of four brothers who served throughout the Revolutionary War. After peace had been declared he settled in the town of Newburg, Orange County, New York, where the father of the subject of this record was born, in the year 1780. From Monroe County he moved to the town of Phelps, Ontdto;County, N. Y., where, in the year 1800, he married Miss-Sarah Widner, of the same place, who was born in New Jersey, in the year 1782. The fruits of this marriage were fourteen children, all of whom lived to mature years, and among whom was Robert Wooden, the subject of this biography, who was born in 1812. He lived with his parents in the town of Chili, Monroe County, N. Y. (where they bhad moved in 1811), until 1830, at which time he married Miss Lydia A. Sickner, and moved from Chili to the town of Gates, in Monroe, where he lived until 1846. He then moved with his wife and four children to Lenawee County, Michigan, purchased two hundred acres of land, and commenced farming. Mr. W. had no advantages while young to gain an education, but being naturatlly of an inquiring mind and quick to learn, he has overcome those deflciences, and also gained a useful practical education. Before Mr. Wooden came from New York he had commenced to preach the UJniversalist faith, and since his home has been in Lenawee County he has done much for the church to which he belongs. He has a farm of one hundred and sixty acres of land, well watered, and under a good state of improvement. Mlr. W. and wife have a large circle of friends, and are esteemed for their warmheartedness and benevolence by all of their many acquaintances. * GEORGE SHEELER, CAMBIIDGE, is one of the oldest settlers of Cambridge Township, he having moved to this township in 1885. He was born in Sussex County, Newton Township, New Jersey, in 1806. While young Mr. Sheeler never had an opportunity to gain an education, the nearest school-house being several miles from his father's house. Although Mr. Sheeler's advantages were very limited for gaining an education while young, he has, by application and observation, since gained a good education. In the fall of 1828 Mr. Sheeler married Jane Onstead, of Sussex County, New Jersey, and she accompanied her husband to his new home at the time mentioned. Upon his arrival in Cambridge Township he located eighty acres of government land, on which he built a rude' log house that he and his family lived in for nearly three years, when they moved into a large and better house, built of hewn logs. BMr. Sheeler at the present time has a farm of five hundred and twenty acres of land, upon which are raised excellent crops of all kinds. Mr. Sheeler is anindustrious man, a good and worthy citizen. FRANCIS A. DEWEY, CAMABrIGE, was born February 26,1811, and resided in New Hampshire until sixteen years of age; he then attended for three years Captain McKay's military school, at Buffalo, New York. In 1829 he moved to Tecumseh, Michigan, but three years later bought government land in Cambridge Township, where he made his home. In 1836 he married Mary A. Smith, of Woodstock, Michigan. Of their six children, the eldest is dead, four have good farms in Cambridge, while the remaining son, having a taste for learning, graduated at Michigan State University, and now receives a yearly salary of two thousand dollars in the northern part of the State. Mr. Dewey has been drum-major of the 8th Regiment Michigan State militia for ten years, road commissioner and justice of the peace for seven years, and supervisor for three years. He has followed the avocation of a farmer for forty years in Lenawee County, of which he is an honored pioneer. He has a pleasant home, and has raised a family of five sons, in whom he takes commendable pride, and who are truly an honor to their parents. I * k. - -.:1.:T ~- -le - \s~i_~ I..- l r — I

The ancestors of the subject of our sketch came from Germany during,* 5e War of the Revolution, and settled in Pennsylvania, where Jacob J., ir, the father of Edwin W., was born. Jacob married Jane Uptergrope, in Livingston County, New York. The result of this marriage was ten children, one of whom was Edwin W., he being born in Livingston County, N. Y., June 18, 1831. In 1834 Jacob with his family emigrated to Lenawee County, Woodstock Township. The County, when Mr. Lair moved here, was thinly settled, and at times the people were sorely pressed for the common wants of life. Sickness, at certain seasons of the year, was to be found in nearly every family in those early days. Many were their privations and sufferings, but with brave and willing hearts they worked, and are now reaping their reward, in enjoying the comforts of their hard-earned and comfortable homes. In 1862 Edwin, the subject of our sketch, went to Allegan County, where he married Miss Cornelia Clark. He remained in Allegan County about six years, when, with his family, he returned to Woodstock Township. Mr. Lair has a farm of one hundred and sixty acres of land, nearly all of which is under a good state of cultivation. JESSE OSBURN, WOODSTOCK, the subject of our present sketch, was born in Newburg, Orange County, New York, in the year 1784, where he lived until he became a young man, when, with his parents, he moved to Cayuga County, New York. Here this family remained several years, and then they removed to Tomkins County, New York, where the subject of our sketch, at about the age of twenty-four, married Rachel Chase, of the county named. The subject of our biography in 1824, with his family, started for the West, coming to Detroit by the way of the lakes. From Detroit he came to Monroe, and was the first person to drive a team through from Detroit to Monroe after the War of 1812. At this time Mr. Osburn's family consisted of his wife and six children. After resting a short time at Monroe, they moved to where Tecumseh now stands. Here Mr. Osburn bought eighty acres of land and commenced farming; and it may safely be said, without fear of contradiction, that he raised the first wheat that was grown in Lenawee County. Mr. Osburn continued to live on his first purchase until the spring of 1833, when, with his family, he moved to Woodstock Township, and took up one hundred and twenty acres of government land. Here he put up the first saw-mill that was erected in Woodstock Township; and he also plante the first orchard in this township. In 1851 his wife died, and after remaining a widower several years, he married Mrs. McDermid. Mr. Osburn continued to live in Woodstock Township until 1857, when he moved to Coffee County, Kansas, where he carried on farming and the fruit-tree business until his death, which took place in 1865. Mr. Osburn was one of the very earliest settlers of Lenawee County, and had a large circle of friends, He was esteemed as a good citizen both in Lenawee County, Michigan, and in Coffee County, KIansas. Alva Osburn, son of Jesse named above, was born in Tompkins County, New York, October 18, 1818. He came to Michigan with his parents, and with them to Woodstock Township. He married Miss A. Every, of Columbia Township, in Jackson County, Michigan, and by her has been blessed with two children: Francilia, born January 3, 1842, and Nathaniel, September 7, 1844. Mr. Osburn owns a farm of two hundred and twenty-six acres, which is one of the finest farms in his township. Mr. Osburn has one of the finest residences in this township, which is also used-as a hotel; and as there are several large lakes near by, it proves to be a great resort for pleasure-parties during the summer months. EZEKIEL MORGAN SANFORD, WOODSTOCK. Ezekiel, grandfather of the subject of the following sketch, was born in New York, where he died, in Erie County, in 1830. His widow, whose maiden name was Susanna Badger, moved to Lenawee County, Michigan, where she died in 1844. This couple had nine children, of whom Malachi, father of the subject of our memoir, was one, he being born in New York, in 1799. When he was twenty-three Malachi married Mrs. Balsora Scott, whose maiden name was Holmes. She was born in Saratoga County, New York, in 1793. In 1837 they moved to Lenawee County with their family. They had four children, of whom Ezekiel M., the subject of our record, was the oldest. Malachi's wife died April 3, 1866, and be on March 2, 1870. On the 14th of April, 1844, Ezekiel married Miss Margaret J. Beck, who was born in Washington County, Penna., August 23, 1824. They have had a family of six children, viz.: Alice S., born November 7, 1846; James M., September 19, 1847; Catharine A., October 29, 1851; Lewis K., March 4, 1854; Leonard A., September 24, 1857; and Mary A., born May 8, 1860. Catharine died July 15, 1853, and James, September 20, 1850. Mr. Sanford has a farm of one hundred and seventy-three acres, of which forty are timber, and the remainder under cultivation, upon which the best of crops are raised. He is a thorough farmer, and by his industry has gained a competence, from which he gives to all worthy objects. He is well known as a good citizen,-one who always takes an interest in the advancement of his town; has never been a political officeseeker, but is contented to live as his ancestors did before him,-a farmer. LEWIS SANFORD), WOODSTOCK. The grandfather of the person whose name heads this biography was a member of the Society of Shaking Quakers, who were established at Lebanon, Connecticut, about the year 1780. Here the father of the subject of this sketch lived until about 1795, when he went to Phelpstown, Connecticut, where he married Miss Susanna Badger. The result of this union was a family of nine children, of whom Lewis was the youngest, being born in Erie County, New York, April 14, 1820. He lived in Erie County until 1835, then his mother (whose husband died about the year 1830) moved to Woodstock Township, Lenawee County, where they arrived September 20, 1835. Here the subject of our sketch hired out by the day, and the first land he bought was half an acre, near what is now called Walker's Junction, giving in payment for the same an old flint-lock shot-gun. In 1839 he traded sixty acres of land for a farm in Cass County, Michigan, and in March of that year moved there with his mother and brother, W. W. Sanford. Mr. S. only remained in Cass County until the next October; then, with his brother and mother, he returned to Woodstock Township, where he purchased one hundred and sixty acres of land, upon which they erected a rough log house, where they lived for many years. December 29, 1842, he married Delilah Wheaton, of Raisin Township, who was born in Cayuga County, New York. Nine children have blessed this marriage, viz.: Adelaide, Lewis, Horace, Adaline, Charles W., Elsie, Ella A., Leroy S., and Ida M. Lewis died August 12, 1850; Horace died September 22, 1850; Leroy S. died March 25, 1870. Mr. Sanford has held various offices of public trust. In 1849 he became a member of the M. E. Church; in 1853 he was licensed to exhort, and in 1857, licensed to preach. In 1872 Mr. Sanford and others in his vicinity formed a Union Church, built a place of worship costing about three thousand dollars, and he was ordained pastor of the same by the Congregational Church. Mr. S. has for many years taken a deep interest in everything pertaining to the advancement of his fellow-citizens, has been at the head of those who have sought to create an interest in regard to religious matters among his fellow-townsmen, and has always given freely of his means for benevolent objects. Mr. S. at the present time owns six hundred and five acres of land, upon which there are six orchards, four large barns, and many other improvements. He is a man of much enterprise, and enjoys the confidence of bis fellow-citizens and the esteem of a large circle of friends. JOHN PENNINGTON, MACON, was born in the towhship of Stafford, Monmouth County, New Jersey, August 25, 1778, being the second child of Israel and Abigail Pfningto. From New Jersey Israel and his family, about the year 1804, moved to Perinton, Monroe County, New York, where John married Hannah Willetts, of the same county, in 1806. The result of this union was six children, named, respectively, Israel, John, Abigail, Joseph, Isaac, and Mary, all of whom lived to mature years. In the spring of 1829 John emigrated, with his family, to Lenawee County, Michigan, and settled in what is now known as Raisin Township. Here he remained until the fall of 1829, when he purchased land in the town of Macon,-the first in that township, and at what is known as Pennington's Corners." He cleared his farm, and, with the aid of his sons, made many improvements. He always took a great interest in the affairs of his towbip, and was held in the highest estimation by all of his many scquaintances. His death took place on the 29th of December, 1860. His widow died on the 28th of March, 1864. She was an affectionate and tender wife, a kind and most indulgent mother, ever willing to sacrifice for the welfare and happiness of her family, an earnest Christian woman, universally loved and respected. Both Mr. and Mrs. Pennington were members of the Society of Friends, and as such were held in veneration. Numerous descendants of this worthy couple still reside where their parens were pioneers, at " Pennington's," and, like their sires, are noted for those virtues which constitute true manhood and womanhood.

We can afford to sell for less than our neighbors on account of the advantages we have in having a side track of the L. S. and M. S. R.
