Ogemaw County was laid out as a county in 1840. Although speculators and lumber barons began buying up large tracts of land by 1852, lumber camps did not appear until the early 1870s. On April 27, 1875, the county of Ogemaw was legally established and organization of county government began. The first death recorded in the county ledgers was dated February, 1876, when Ida Hamilton died of diptheria. Obviously there were other deaths prior to this date that went unrecorded. It has also been observed that there are many deaths after 1876 that were not recorded in the official record books of the county. Researchers should keep this in mind when searching for information in Ogemaw County. Certified death records can be obtained by contacting:
