I am posting information gleaned from land records in the areas where our family’s ancestors resided. You can read more about this project in the overview. You may also check my deed record listing, which I will update frequently, but probably not every day. This group pertain to Papa’s Fellows ancestors who resided in Wexford County, Michigan.

|Description:||The W 1/2 of the NE 1/4 of the NW 1/4 of Section 9 T23N R10W except a piece of land in the NW corner 10 rods N-S by 12 rods E-W and also a piece starting 12 rods E of the corner of the NW 1/4 of the NW 1/4 and running east 24 rods, south 10 rods, west 24 rods and north 10 rods to the point of beginning.|
Charlie Tinker died on 5 January 1946, less than a year after the this deed was executed. I cannot explain why Mr. & Mrs. Colbert did not file this deed until 24 January 1947, but since Charlie died on 5 January, maybe that prompted them to act. I have again used a portion of the Colfax Township map from the 19141 Atlas to show the location of the property.
