Gratiot County Michigan

Gratiot County

Just stop a moment and contemplate the fact, that in 1854 the whole of this county was a dense and pathless forest, and that in the brief term of six years—till 1860—5,000 people were living in the county, and that no surplus of provisions was raised within fifty miles of the county in either direction then you will very readily see the hard times may be attributed to something else than natural poverty of the county.
