Lenawee County

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

In the first state legislature of 1835-6, she was entitled to four representative out of forty-nine, and has now only three out of a hundred ; and in the state senate, out of a body of thirty-two, she has only one member. To complete the history of the organization of townships in Lenawee-county, it may be sufficient to add here that the state legislature of 1835-6, by an act approved March 23, 1836, provided for organizing the-townships of Woodstock, Cambridge, Hudson and Dover with the same boundaries as at present, and Seneca, including what is now Seneca and. Medina, and also proposed a township to be called Channing, but which never became organized, as almost the whole of it was included in the 'i strip set off to Ohio by congress, and what was left of it was afterward made part of the township of Ogden. In 1837 provision was made for the organization of the townships of Ogden and Medina, and in 1833 the name of the township of Logan was changed to Adrian, and that of Lenawee to Madison.
