Davison Township's Short Tenure...

...As A Military Tract


From the Historical collections...:

"The new township of Davison was in the limit of land obtained of the Indians by the treaty at Detroit in 1807.  In the first year of the war with England in 1812, an act was passed by congress requiring that two million acres of land in each of the territories of Michigan, Illinois, and Louisiana--in all six million acres--should be surveyed and set apart as a military tract, and of which each soldier serving in the armies of the United States in the was with England, should be entitled to received one hundred and sixty acres of land fit for cultivation."
 "The surveyor general in his report dated November 13, 1815, gave such discouraging and dismal accounts of the country, that congress on April 29, 1816, repealed so much of the act of 1812, authorizing the soldier's land in Michigan, and providing in lieu thereof a survey and location of land in Missouri."
