Lenawee County

By John J. Adam, February 7th, 1878.

And they provided for continuing in force within the district of country not to be embraced within the limits of the proposed state of Michigan, all laws of the territory not locally inapplicable, and also arranged so as to throw the election of delegate to congress into said district. In the act authorizing the election of delegates to a convention to form the first state constitution, which was to assemble at Detroit on the ¦second Monday in May, then next, there were assigned to Lenawee "County eight delegates—her population, according to the census of September, 1834, entitling her to one-eleventh part of the number, as near as might be—the total number of delegates being eighty-nine. Although Lenawee county has increased more more than six-fold in population since 1834, or from 7,911, including Hillsdale county, to-46,084 in Lenawee alone, according to the census of 1874, yet such has been the comparatively more rapid growth of the newer and other portions of the state, that from holding then about one-eleventh part of the population, she now holds a little less than one-twenty-ninth.
