This web site is dedicated to my ancestors who came to Kent County, Michigan in the early 1800s. Kent County was a wilderness at the time but the families survived the hardships. The families of Kraft (1869), Cook (1836), Patterson (1828), and Spaulding (1836) were among the first to arrive in Kent County, Michigan.
Edward Spaulding lived in Jamestown in the year 1619 and endured the Indian Massacre that occurred in the Virginia Colony on Good Friday, March 22, 1622. About 347 people, or almost one-third of the population of Jamestown were killed by attacks of the Powhatan Confederacy under Chief Opechancanough.
