Pioneer Families Outside The City Limits

"To complete the record of early Catholic families in the Grand River Valley region in so far as possible, an attempt has been made to add to the City Directory lists, a list of the Catholic families in the various townships adjacent to the city. Belden's Illustrated Historical Atlas of Kent County, Michigan, has served as a source of much of this data.

The northern townships were largely unconnected with the Catholic community in Grand Rapids,  but a list of Catholic families in the other townships is given. The list would be as of the year 1875, or seventy-five years from the date of writing."
