Michigan

Jackson

Fortunately this, and the loss arising from taking men from their business, was all the pioneers of Michigan were called upon to suffer, as the Indians continued peaceful, and gave them no cause for complaint, except the excessive fright which was caused by apprehension of what would follow if they should draw the tomahawk.
JACKSON COUNTY ORGANIZED.
The legislative council of the territory, on the 26th of January, 1832, passed a law organizing the county of Jackson, with the usual provisions relative to suits, taxes and records, and providing that the act should take effect and be in force from and after the first day of August, 1832. There was a session of the circuit court held in September of this year, but no record of proceedings can be found. The evidence proving that such a term was held is in the allowance by the board of supervisors of the bill of David Keys, sheriff, in September, 1832, "for summoning jury for county court, two days attendance and room $10.00," and also in the filing by " S. Stoddard, clerk," in October, 1832, of the certificate of election for " a state government." Hiram Thompson was appointed associate judge of the circuit court of the county of Jackson, April 23d, 1833, by George B. Porter, governor of the territory.
