2. Pierre and Marie Joseph Yax

6/2/1783 in Detroit Mi.  Pierre Yax was the first settler in the
area, now know as New Baltimore Mi.  Pierre Yax was issued two land
grants one signed by President John Quincy Adams on 7/3/1826, which
traced a "Land Patent" back to him in 1812 when Michigan was still
part of the Northwest Territory. The other by President Woodrow
Wilson signed in May 1915.  This second one was more then likely
given to his son or a grandson named Pierre because Pierre died in
1826.  Pierre and Marie had nine children.
