I came across this book recently and believe the copyright is no longer in effect. This is a fascinating account of the lumbering industry, not a history of it, but snippets of what it was like. The book consists of reminisces by Jacob Dye and his son Rex Dye. I know sometimes my reading voice is a bit off but if you came bare with it this is a fascinating account. The photos are as they appeared in the book.

Central Michigan Lumber Camps (Circa 1900)
This video emphasizes the Joe Lett and Edmund Hall Bundy Hills & Skinner Logging Camps where my ancestors lived and worked. It must be noted that Thomas Guy – Arlo Guy’s Grandfather settled in Rolland Township. The land he purchased yielded many large rock elm timber, which was used to build ships. The timber was hauled to the railroad in Blanchard by means of horses guided by Lovejoy and Rebecca Squires-Tate. A lumber mill was built on the farm in later years. Many African-Americans (Old Settlers) of Isabella, Mecosta, and Montcalm Counties either owned or worked in the lumber camps throughout Michigan. In the 1840's, Eastern states were beginning to exhaust their timber resources, and information about Michigan pine began to spread. Lumbermen began flocking to the Great Lakes State. According to George S. May’s revised edition of Willis Dunbar’s Michigan: A History of the Wolverine State, Michigan’s lumber boom peaked around 1880. Lower peninsula forests were “virtually all cutover” by 1900 and Upper Peninsula lumber production began to decline a few years after that. Conservation techniques and selective cutting increased productivity later in the twentieth century. By then the “hey day” of the lumber industry was unquestionably over.

Michigan during the days when the Native American Indian ruled was not always the peaceful life that so many presume it to have been. Yes there were times like that, but we also know that there were some very bloody battles. This true account is about one such episode which we have named, "The Battle of Skull Island." This battle took much planning among various Indian nations all in an attempt to exterminate the Sauk who controlled the Saginaw Valley in mid Michigan. This video is read by Dennis M. Morrison Sr., and is based on a booklet of his sold through Time Hopper Productions. Please be sure to give us a thumbs up, comment and subscribe! Here at Time Hopper Productions and the Small Lake Michigan Historical Society you are always welcome and appreciated.

Free Water in America? Only in Upper Michigan..
Get FREE WATER at the NORWAY SPRING in Norway, Michigan. Want a little history on this historical landmark? ***In 1878 a sawmill was erected here as the first industry in the Norway - Vulcan area. John O'Callaghan was owner of this mill which supplied early mining number needs until 1902. This spring was caused by a 1094 foot hole which was drilled in 1903 by the Oliver Mining Company in search of iron ore. The hole cuts several steeply dipping porous strata that trap water at the higher elevations to the north. The difference in elevation causes pressure: this pressure is released by the drilled hole demonstrating the principle of the artesian well. On the slope to the north are the obscure workings of the Few and Munro mines, operated in 1903-1922, now owned by the Ford Motor Company.
