"Benjamin Doolittle came from Delaware county, New York, in 1837,* with
his wife and six children, and settled in September of that year on the farm now
owned by his son, Augustus Doolittle. They came by team to Buffalo, thence
by boat to Detroit, and thence by team again to their wilderness home. Mr.
Doolittle purchased two eighties on section 30, from the person who had entered
the land. He also made the first improvements, and was the first settler. Two
children were born to Mr. and Mrs. D., after they came west, and of the eight
there are six now living. Mr. Doolittle died in March, 1871, in his seventy-eighth
year. His wife is living with her son on the old place."
