The first founders, of what is today Macomb Township, arrived in the 19th century, in quest of cultivable and fertile land. Almost the to build a home and settle in todays Macomb Township was a man named Daniel Kniffens, who decided to live here after he bough land by the side of the Clinton Rivers Middle Branch. The original settlement was in the area which is today the corner of the Romeo Plank Road and 25 mile, and was known to the people as Macomb Corners Village. A large proportion of the earliest settlers were German or of German stock, and their continuing influences can be seen in the community till date. The Township was officially approved and named in 1834, called Macomb to honor General Alexander Macomb, a veteran and hero of the 1812 War. His family was successful, and influential, and at one point in time had owned practically all of Macomb County. By the first years of the 1830s, more and more people begun to move in and settle in what came to be the modern Macomb Township of today. The ample availability of flat farm lands and the augmentation of fertile soil by the waters of the Clinton River made the area attractive to farmers. In the mid to late years of the 19th century, and into the 20th century, Macomb Township came to have a large part in the logging and lumber industry booming in Southeast Michigan.
