Where the nai
There is a minor controversy
over who the original "Ann" of
Ann Arbor was.
According to the most popu-
lar legend, the city was named
after the wives of its two found-
ers, John Allen and Elisha
Walker Rumsey.
As the tales goes, the men
were so fond of watching their
wives sit under the branches of
wild grapevines in a small arbor
that they named the city after
them.
Another lesser-known, but
more mysterious, tale sug-
gests the city was named after
a female guide, Ann D'Arbeur,
who led pioneers west from
Detroit through the Michigan
wilderness starting around
1813. This fable is generally not
considered credible due to lack
of evidence.
To some extent, the first

Explained

Vhose arbor?
me Ann Arbor really came from

myth is plausible because the
wives, Ann Allen and Mary
Ann Rumsey, did in fact share
names and have an arbor of
grapevines that grew over
plum trees planted by their
husbands.
But later historians like Rus-
sel Bidlack suggest the details
of the original tale are skewed.
In his biography of Ann Allen,
Bidlack argues that her hus-
band named the town only for
his wife, because Mary Ann
Rumsey did not go by her mid-
dle name.
An online University history
project argues the opposite,
saying the town was named
only for Rumsey, as Ann Allen
did not arrive in the territory
of Michigan until October 1824
and survey records from May
25, 1824 already list the town as
Annarbour.

Whatever the case, the exact
spelling of the town's name
remained a point of contention.
Allen used the English spelling
and wrote it as one word. Mich-
igan Territory Governor Lewis
Cass spelled it as two words.
Others hyphenated it.
After Noah Webster declared
"arbor"tobe the American spell-
ing of the word, most reflected
the change in the spelling of the
town's name. For the restoftheir
lives, Allen and Rumsey insisted
it be spelled the English way to
no avail.
