Supervisor Kingsley laughs at the claim of the Emery lady -as being the oldest resident of the county. Says he : " There is Mrs. Wynkup, of Ann Arbor, for instance. She came to Salem in 1828 and has lived in the county ever since. Then, in the township of Salem we have Mrs. Royal Wheelock and George McCormick. Both came here in 1829. My mother, Mrs. James Kingsley, came in 1830. All four of these beat the Emery lady's record. ' ' The Argut would state that Daniel B. Brown, of this city, came to Ann Arbor in 1826. We believe that this is the record for the county. But if there are any older we would be glad to hear it.
