Organized After The War Of 1812

Previous to the colonization survey, except the missionaries of 1639, the French exploring parties and the French settlers passing to Detroit and the American filibustering parties in the war of 1812, few white men had passed along its shores and upon its banks*. No regularly organized attempt to settle the district had begun until the close of that war. [Source]  *Kent County, Ontario, Canada, area
