About the county:
"Alpena County is a county in the U.S. state of Michigan. As of the 2000 census, the population was 31,314. The county seat is Alpena. It is considered to be part of Northern Michigan. It was founded originally in 1840 as Anomickee County. In 1843, the name was changed to Alpena, a pseudo-Native American word - a neologism coined by Henry Schoolcraft, meaning something like "a good partridge country." This was part of a much larger effort to rename a great many of the Michigan counties at the time. Alpena County was officially organized in 1857." - from Wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alpena_County,_Michigan.
