CALHOUN COUNTY MICHIGAN

CALHOUN COUNTY There being a strong family resemblance between the brothers, together with the fact that Edwin wore the same woolen vest (which had been mended by his mother) that Edward wore in his encounter with the Indian, led Simo, at first sight, to believe him to be the same Chemocaman who crushed in his skull. After making some presents of tobacco to the Indian, Baldwin passed on, but kept an eye on him until out of sight; fearing he would fire upon him as he kept his rifle ready and half raised, to his face. This Indian lived about a year, though feeble, and died. Mr. Baldwin* does not remember the other one's name, but knew him, and of his whereabouts for some years afterwards.
MEMORIAL REPORT
BY A. O. HYDE Mr. President. —I am sorry that the list of deaths of aged persons who have died in Calhoun county during the last year is incomplete as presented here to-day.

Mr. Jones was born and reared in New York City—well known to all early settlers in the county as Esquire Jones; educated a lawyer; a man of means; somewhat eccentric, but an acknowledged gentleman in all his transactions.
