Please add profiles of those who were born, lived or died in Cheboygan County, Michigan.

The county boundaries were set off in 1840, with land partitioned from Mackinac County. The Cheboygan County government was organized in 1853. The name of the county shares the same origin as that of the Cheboygan River, although the precise meaning is no longer known. It may have come from an Ojibwe word zhaabonigan, meaning "sewing needle". Alternatively, the origin may have been Chabwegan, meaning "a place of ore".
