The History of Berrien and Van Buren Counties, Michigan was published in 1880 in Philadelphia by D. W. Ensign & Co.Under the section for Bainbridge Township
of Berrien County you can read on page 217:

       “The Penn Yan Settlement.The southwestern portion of Bainbridge is popularly known as Penn Yan, a name given to it by Isaac Youngs after the Brants located there.The first settlement in this part was made by the Brant family, of Wayne Co., N.Y.Simeon Brant with his wife and four children-Nathaniel, John, Daniel, and Augustus-came to Michigan in 1836, and made settlement upon section 31 in Bainbridge township, where the elder Brant had, previous to his coming hither, bought 80 acres of land of Darius Clark.At this time the southern tier of sections in Bainbridge was an unbroken wilderness, into which Brant was the first to venture as a settler.With the aid of his boys, he chopped out a road to his place, put up a cabin, and made a clearing.”
