Oakland County was formed out of Wayne County before Statehood, the county seat is Pontiac, and the town of Rochester was formed at about the time Ann Arbor was formed in [Washtenaw County].  It is north and west of Detroit.  The Mack Family built the road that ran from Detroit to Pontiac and the road which split off that and went to Rochester.
