Sylvester Cochrane, Vermontville Colony

Narrative history of the Vermontville Colony in Michigan


Under the leadership of Sylvester Cochrane, a Congregational minister, a group of men from the Michigan communities of Bennington, Benson, Orwell, and Vermont formed a colony called Vermontville. Settled in 1836 and located in Thornapple River Valley, Vermontville was an experiment in a "pledged" society where members surrendered their possessions for the common good. This database is a history of the settlement and includes sketches of the principle citizens in the fledgling colony. For researchers of Michigan ancestors, this can be an illuminating narrative.
