Oakland County
Michigan

Oakland County, like many of the counties that surround it, started out as a part of Wayne County when the Territory of Michigan was first formed on 01 Nov 1815 by Lewis Cass, the Territorial Governor. On 15 Jan 1818, Macomb County (including modern day Oakland County) was formed. Oakland County became a separate county on 28 Mar 1820. In 1822, what is now Livingston, Shiawassee and Washtenaw counties were formed, leaving what is now Oakland County.

The first town in Oakland County was Pontiac, which is the County Seat to this day.

Starting out as a sparsely populated, rural area, Oakland County is, as of the 2010 Census, the 2nd most populated county in Michigan.

I'm your host, Nancy Bliven.  I have found that numerous ancestors of mine have lived in the Lyon Twp, New Hudson, Milford area since the early 1830s.  I have a lot of family information, which I will be adding to the web page as I can transcribe it. You can help me and other researchers in Oakland County by sending us information that you might have on the History of the county, towns and townships.
