Who was Macomb County named after

On Jan. 15, 1818, Gov. Lewis Cass issued a proclamation naming the third and largest county in the territory of Michigan after his good friend, Alexander Macomb. At that time, Macomb County included all of Genesee, Lapeer, Livingston, Macomb, Oakland and St. Clair counties, as well as parts of Sanilac, Shiawassee, Ingham and Tuscola counties.
