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 . This group pertain to Papa’s Fellows ancestors who resided in Newaygo County, Michigan.
|Date:||1 January 1873|
|Location:||Newaygo County, MI|
|Grantor:||A large group|
|Type of deed:||Warranty|
|Rec’d and recording:||26 Sept 1876|
|Location of land:||Grant Township, Newaygo County, MI|
|Description:||NE 1/4 Section 7 T11N R12W 160 acres|
The location of this land is illustrated by the blue outline on the Grant Township map from the old Newaygo County Atlas1 . The red outline shows land owned by Joel B. Fellows. When I transcribed the deed, I did not know which Henry Fellows had purchased this land, I now know the original purchase was made by Henry H. Fellows ( b. ca 1839). His nephew was only 13 in 1873, too young to have purchased the land.
