1912 edition. Excerpt: ...the name of the river in Scotland upon
which he had lived as a boy. In 1827 he sold to Wadhams, who
maintained the mill for many years. In 1835 a post office was
established there with the name Clyde Mills, and Mr. Wadhams as
postmaster. It is said that Mr. Wadhams was very fond of the name,
and greatly disappointed when through the organization of new
townships, the name Clyde was finally attached to a township in
which neither he, nor his mill or post office was located. Owing to
Black river running through the center of this township, thus
making all the timber available, much of this land within the
township was taken up at an early date. It was not surveyed until
1823 but some years before that Ignace Morass had built a sawmill
upon section 17, near the junction of Mill creek, with Black river,
using the timber near from the government land. When the land was
put on sale in 1824, Morass bought the west half of the section
upon which his mill stood. There was no swamp land in this township
and it was largely taken up by 1836. Excluding section 16, which
was reserved as school land, by the end of 1836 more than
nine-tenths of the entire township had been purchased from the
government. Much of this was by speculators, but settlers came in
with some rapidity as lumbering operations began with Morass and
the Smart mill at Wadhams was built in 1825. By 1840 there were the
following actual occupants in the township: Section 3, James
Gardner, Allen Atkins, Solomon Kingsley; sections 6-7, Ai Beard;
section 9, John H. Westbrook; section 12, Harod Kinney, R. B.
Kellogg; section 13, John R. Jones, Joel Perkins, Norman R. Smith;
section 17, James Abbott, mill; section 24, James S. Vincent;
section 25, Augustus Allen, Isaac Pulcifer, Richard Bean;
