History

Organizational History:

Ocqueoc Township, Presque Isle County, Michigan, is a version of an Indian word for crooked waters, probably a reference to the Ocqueoc River. Ocqueoc has had a post office since January 28, 1885. Presque Isle County was established in 1840. Presque Isle was named for the narrow peninsula the land formed in Lake Huron. The first white settler arrived about 1860. (This information is from Michigan Place Names.)

The Ocqueoc School District which included Ocqueoc Township, Ocqueoc Unit, and Case Township schools in Presque Isle County, existed from 1884 to at least 1964. By 2011 Ocqueoc schools were part of Rogers City Public Schools. (This information is from Wikipedia, accessed March 11, 2011.)
