Austerlitz Ladies' Aid Society Secretary's Book

The society was formed 23 February (no year given) by Mrs. Brooks, Mrs. Smith, Mrs. Weller, Mrs. Shepard, Mrs. Solomon, Mrs. Drake and Mrs. Rexford.  The aim was to organize a Ladies Society.  The first meetings minutes were 7 March 1894.  The book ends 7 July 1897.  The end of the book gives 52 regular members and a page of 14 honorary members.

The dates are the meeting date mentioned or members list designation.

A copy of the book is at the Hyser River Museum at 6440 Belmont Avenue, Belmont, Michigan.  The museum is open the first Sunday of the month, May through December from 2 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.

History of the Name Austerlitz

Plainfield Township needed a post office and was not able to use its own name because of another Plainfield post office on the east side of the state.  The group chose Austerlitz as many of the residents were from that town in Europe.
