I am currently working on a Michigan Pamphlet Series featuring personal history stories about the pioneers of St. Clair and Macomb Counties. If you are interested in purchasing one of my pamphlets, clicking the images below will take you to my storefront on Blurb. Thank you for your support!


About the Book

Henry G. McMorran was a prominent capitalist and former US Congressman from Port Huron, Michigan. In 1891, he formed a business partnership with Wilbur F. Davidson. Together they built the McMorran and Davidson building that still stands today at 7th and Lapeer. This book details their partnership and the business entities that operated out of the building from 1891 to 1910. An entertaining read for those interested in the unique history of the city of Port Huron, Michigan.


About the Book

Frances Harsen was a Native American woman married to Jacob Harsen II. This story aims to uncover the truth behind the folklore surrounding the first family of Harsen’s Island, Michigan. It examines the legal challenges faced in being a Native American woman living in Michigan in the mid-1840s and how it affected Frances Harsen’s claims to her husband’s estate.
