JACKSON PATRIOT.
Mr. Reuben S. Cheney bought out the Michigan Democrat in 1845, and commenced the publication of the Jackson Patriot. He soon after associated with himself Mr. Wilbur F. Storey. On the 18th of January 1848, they commenced the publication of the " Jackson Daily Patriot," but this was discontinued when it was demonstrated that as yet a daily paper would not pay in Jackson. The Patriot of May 2d, 1849, claimed, to be the only paper published in the county. In 1851 Mr. Cheney sold the Patriot to Joseph F. Titus, who was editor and proprietor for several years. He was succeeded in 1854 by Mr. Cheney, and he, in 1857, by Mr. Thomas Boughton, and Boughton and Brothers who, in 1863, sold out to Chapin and Higgs. They were succeeded by Mr. W. W. VanAntwerp. In 1866 the " Eagle," which was: owned by B. D. Carlton, and had been published for four years, was merged with the Patriot, which has since been owned and edited by its| proprietors, Carlton and VanAntwerp. The first publication of the Patriot as a daily paper by Carlton and VanAntwerp was on the 20th off August, 1870, when the " Jackson Daily Patriot" was issued, since which time its publication has been continuous.
