History

Like the rest of Calhoun County, Clarence Township was populated by Potawatamis before the coming of Euro-Americans. The first Euro-American settler came to the township in 1836. It was not until 1845 that a Euro-American settled at Duck Lake. This was Jacob Nichols, who still had Potawatami neighbors as his only close neighbors for several years after this.

The township was organized in 1838. The first school in the township was established the following year.[3]
