SKETCHES OF CHEBOYGAN
AND) VICINITY. . .
It i3 designed by the writer to present
in several sketches, such facts of historic
and present value, as may assist in pro
moting the growing interest which is
being manifest for Cheboygan and vicin
ty. The location of Cheboygan is near the
Northern extremity of the lower Penin
sular of Michigan; at the entrance of the
South passage, which connects the watery
of Lake Huron with the Straits 'of Mack
inaw. More than two hundred ycars.have
elapsed since this region was explored
by a white man. Before Detroit was foun
ded, the illustrious Father, Janes Mar
quette, had visited the Straits and found
ed thi mission of St. Ignacc, about the
year 1G70, on the point of laud which
now bears the same name, and forms the
Xorthern shore of the straits. AVith ar
dent zeal and enthusiasm Marquette
planned and partially executed "an ex
tensive missionary work among the In
dians. Starting from Quebec he follow
ed the line of , the lakes, noting sites for
prospective mission stations.
The geography of the country was
sufficiently understood to indicate the
straits of Mackinaw as being the con
verging point of the great lakes. Says
Marquette: "This place is.J;he most
noted in these regions for the abundance
of its fisheries, for according to the In
dian saying, this is the home of the
fishes.' It is this attraction which
ha3 heretofore drawn to a point so ad
vantageous, the greater part of the sav
ages in this country. "
This fact was frequently illustrated by
the large convocations of Indian tribes
who came from the adiacent regions of
territorjr which nowr comprise several
states. Thi3 was also the rallying point
for such tribes as Avere uniting in de
fense or aggression against a common
The sagacious Marquette was quick to
perceive that this geographical and . tri
bal center was the most effective position
for a center mission, from which he could
project jradiating lines of communications
to-evn V :nt.ofthecoinpas, . and "ex
1 : f ! i a;- Missionary conquests to remote
'-S?r Iil fcu'rly death prevented - the
realization of Ids plans. The successive
conquests and occupation of this region
by the Flench, English and Americans,
give to it a diversified history, the events
of which, at the time, exerted a marked
influence upon the country at large.
During the preceding conflicts, and
war of 1S12, the commanders of the
English and American forces" justly
deemed the control of the straits a mat
ter of great imriortance, hence the artful
stratagems, sudden encounters, and san
guinary conflicts "which culminated in
the capture of .the Island of Mackinaw
by the British In 1812, and their surren
der of the same to the Americans in 1815.
Outlines of the fortifications can be traced
at the present day. The advantages of
the region of the straits as a central po
sition was demonstrated by Marquette,
and in later years appreciated by John
Jacob Astor, of .New. York, who, as the
directing mind of the Astor Fur com
pany, located at "Mackinaw Island his
headquarters for the distribution of
suppl!v,ytb his agents, and for the recep-;
tion ylurs. -

Mackinaw island thus possesses much
historical interest, and is annually visited
by! large numbers of tourists and pleasure
seekers. x.Jc ... .,.
By a recent act of Congress, a tract of
the island is reserved as a national park4
and will doubtless attain to a national
v During the last fifty years the on-rolling
tide of emigration has converted the
once wilderness west, into an empire of
intelligent and energetic people. : :
Itf is a fact frequently noted that, emi
gration usually proceeds on nearly the
same lines of latitude. The region of the
straits of Mackinaw is north of the lati
tude of the greater part of ?ew Eng
land and the Middle states, consequently
it has, until recently, remained compara
tively unknown to the emigrating popu
lation. r - -'- V -v'-
Gen. Ilazen, of the U. S. army, who. i3
stationed in the territories, recently "pub
lished an article which . attracted wide
attention. It is descriptive 6rthe unoC-
j upied resources of our country. As the
result of personal inspection he affirms
that the regions in the "West, best suited
for' agriculture, are taken up . by;; hidi-
viduals and - corporations. ? This stater
ment being true, it will cease to be
said that " UncJ.e -Sam fis frich enough

The recent grant of the St ate Legisla

jmilding ot the Mackinaw & Marquette
railroad in the -Xorthern ; Peninsula, is
ikely to stimulate the" immediate com

Thieves and robbers swept down on the
