On the 30th of July, 1830, an " act to incorporate the township of Jacksonopolis," passed by the legislative council of the territory was approved by the governor. By a subsequent act, approved February 18th. 1831, the name was changed to Jacksonburgh. This township, in the language of the act, embraced " all that part of the country being within the limits of the county of Jackson." The township and county were one in extent until 1833, when the county was divided into four townships—Jacksonburgh, Spring Arbor, Napoleon and Grass Lake.

Bennett, in said township, on the third Tuesday of August, 1830."
