Lenawee County

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

As connected somewhat with the question of the removal of the county seat and as showing the growth and standing of the several townships in the county at the time of taking the first state census in October, 1837, Annual Meeting of 1878. 365. I have prepared a table taken from the results of that census, showing the population, the number of saw-mills, of grist-mills, and of merchants, etc., in each township, thus indicating in an authentic and semi-official form the relative progress up to that time of the several portions of the county in population and business. Ridgeway was then, and until 1841, included in the township of Macon; Riga (first called Pottsdam) was still a' part of Blissfield, and Deerfield, when organized as a separate township in 1867, was formed in part from Blissfield and in part from Ridgeway— and Clinton then, and until 1869, was part of the township of Tecumseh. The table is made up in the order of the organization of the several townships, up to the time of the taking of the census:
