Reference History of Calhoun County Michigan:
The first settler who located in the township was Anthony Doolittle, who came in May, 1832, in company with Deacon Henry Cook. The latter located in what is now Eckford township. These two men purchased four hundred and eighty acres of land at an advance of fifty per cent, from government price, paying one dollar eighty-seven and a half cents per acre. The land had been entered the previous winter by Dr. Hays, of Marshall. Mr. Doolittle located on section 1, on " Cook's prairie," as it was afterwards called, a name it has ever since retained. Mr. Doolittle has been dead a number of years, and none of his family are now living in the neighborhood. He came with Mr. Cook from Washtenaw county, where they had stopped the previous winter. Mr. Cook was from Cayuga county, New York, and Mr. Doolittle was also from that State.
