    Notes 
    • Alexander L. Bouck and Andrew Bouck settled in Gaines in 1837.
      !History of Kent County, Illustrated, Chas. C. Chapman & Co., 1881, pp. 183-208.

      The first settler in this township was Alexander Clark, who located on section 8, in the spring of 1837. He was joined in autumn by Alexander L. Bouck, who located on section 5, his present homestead, and Andrew and his son, Renssalaer Mensard, who located on section 17, the place now occupied by Henry Kelley, and soon after by Foster Kelley, Charles Kelley and Joseph Blain, who located on their present homesteads, on sections 4 and 5. Gaines at that time had little to recommend her to the eyes of civilization; being nothing more or less than 36 square miles of wilderness. Yet to the hardy, enterprising pioneers her heavy forests of beech and maple, and in some localities pine and oak, abundant supply of fresh water, with an average supply of bear, wolves, deer, wild turkeys, etc., possessed a charm that was irresistible. And the ice once broken the development of her resources was only a question of time.
