Family history: In 1835 Henry with his brother John left near Montreal to come to Michigan. This trip took six weeks. Henry had a horse and an ox and John had two oxen. They stopped in Ann Arbor and then later made their way to Ingham County. While in Ann Arbor they helped build the first building on the University of Michigan Campus. Henry made his home 6 miles west of Mason on Brick Yard Road. This is now Columbia Road. He always lived there. John acquired 160 acres in the same area. He later divided 60 acres each to two of his sons. The remaining 40 acres he traded for a wagon.
