Original Highland Township Landowner

Stephen Hovey

SW 1/4 of SE 1/4 of Section 7

This is likely the Stephen Hovey who settled in Rose Township, Oakland County, Michigan, where he was elected a constable at the first Rose township meeting in 1837.   An Alexander Hovey appears on the 1840 Census for Highland Township, age 20-30, who is possibly a son.  Note also the Stephen Hovey, age 34, on the 1850 Census for Vienna, Genesee County, Michigan, who may be another son.
