Steiner MIch. Anybody know anything about it?
« on: January 08, 2015, 09:03:22 PM »

Was it named after RUdolf Steiner and his Waldorf schools?  Or am i off base?

I've seen the name mentioned in a couple local history books.
This is what is on Wikipedia about it.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steiner,_Michigan

I don't really consider Wikipedia a good source for all reliable information. But it does have some merit. But that depends on who supplies the information.

Steiner is not really an 'uncommon' name around Michigan although it's not a popular name either.  I didn't find any info any different than what Mayonnaise posted.  The 'town' apparently was not built on a recorded plat of if it was it wasn't recorded under the name of Steiner.  There was a Steiner up in Macomb county that recorded a few plats and it certainly wouldn't have been unheard of for a family to range from Monroe to Macomb or the reverse!

I went through Talcott Wing's book and found these references to Steiner.
I didn't include everything just what was associated with the name.
Maybe one of these could make a connection?

Willaim Steiner, Monroe. Is “listed as may have been clerk or in business during the fify years of William H. Boyd…”

George Steiner. Mentions of being of the Catholic families. Part of the Most Holy Redeemer, or Oder of the Redemptorist (C.S.S.R.)

Martin Steiner. Co. A. 17 Mich. Inf. Ash.

Ferdninand Steiner, son of Sebastain and Catherine Steiner. Married Margaret Eisenger. Setteled in Ash.
Paul Bechberger. Came to Frenchtown in 1806. Marred to Mary, daughter of Ferdinand and Margaret (Isinger?) Steiner.

Jacob Brost, a farmer living in Raisinville. He married Catherine, daughter of James and Jennie (Steiner) Cauchie….

Steiner does show up very prominently on this 1895 Map of Monroe County.

Jacob Brost is a relative of my Wife

He I believe is the one who donated land and helped build the Church on the corner of Raisinville and N. Custer

I like the map - it shows Steiner as a "stop" on the roadway - similar to Strasburg

Here's where I found the map...   a map of the entire state:

I was looking up through the rest of the state and I saw so many names I'd never heard of...

mind boggling at the very least.

Hungerford in Mecosta County is the name of the now abandonded German Settlement thats adjacent to my land and only accessable by a seasonal road and/or on foot.

I was built and settled by Migrant Germans around the turn of the centiry.  The foundations of the houses are still there in the overgrown weeds.  The land is now owned by the State of Michigan and is designated state game land.  It has a natural spring running through it, similar to what Ice Mountain has for their 'spring water- which is, incidentally, just east and slightly north of my property.

Still a few people around Michigan with the name Hungerford.  Also some kind of a state game area for horseback riding up in Newaygo County.  Most likely named for the same clan.

I found this website from the UK (at least I'm pretty sure that's what the address is telling me.  It has lists of names of various historical railroad 'places' across Michigan.  And right there on page 1 on the Ann Arbor Railroad it refers to Urania.

42. Ypsilanti Junction
Campbell
40.5 Pittsfield
Dexter Road
State Street
45.2 Ann Arbor (2nd?)
 ? Summit Street
46.0 Ann Arbor (1st?)


The numbers in front of the location are the 'mile markers' running from south to north and starting from the lines origin in Toledo.

Again, several of these names are new to me even as many maps and lists as I've studied over the years. 

I'm familiar with Todd Road so it makes sense that there would have been a place named Todd as it's namesake. 

Next on the map is Ida Center which again makes sense from modern road names.  I don't ever recall hearing of Sizer though.  Or

For anyone not familiar with Alexis Junction it's just south of Alexis Road in Toledo.  The Toledo-Monroe-Detroit Interurban line went under the AA railroad at Alexis.  Today the big long overpass on Alexis road takes road traffic high above the AA railroad.

A somewhat recent article in the MonroeNews on the Federman School bell.
