Monroe County


In March and April, 1996, a group of genealogists organized the Michigan Comprehensive Genealogy Database. The idea was to provide a single entry point for all counties in Michigan, where collected databases would be stored. In addition, the databases would be indexed and cross-linked, so that even if an individual were found in more than one county, they could be located in the index.

At the same time, volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of databases and generally over see the contents of the web page. My name is Bryan Taylor and I'm responsible for Monroe county. Please contact me if you would like to contribute to this database.

Monroe County originally Frenchtown created in 1785, and was founded and renamed Monroe on 14 July 1817. Named after President James Monroe, who paid the Michigan Territory a visit in 1817. At this time Toledo was part of Monroe County, but later lost during what is known as the 1835 Toledo War, where Ohio and Michigan fought over a 500 square mile strip of land that included the mouth of the Maumee River. As an exchange, Michigan got the Upper Peninsula, which then was considered a wilderness.

Check out the names indexed for SPAULDING CEMETERY, in Milan, Monroe Co., Michigan. There are 119 people layed to rest in this cemetery only six of them are Spaulding's so it's worth taking a look at. Just click on SPAULDING CEMETERY to view this index.
