Burdick Family Land Records, Wexford County, Michigan Liber 14 page 616

This entry is part 13 of 99 in the series Deeds in the Family

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 with each post.

Date: 2 May 1885
Liber: 14
Page: 616
Location: Wexford Co MI
Grantor: John P. Fenton & Susie M. Fenton of Colfax Wexford County MI
Grantee: Fink C. Burdick of County & State aforesaid
Witnesses: Charles L. Palmer, George W. Burdick
Type of deed: Quit Claim
Rec’d and recording: 2 May 1885 12 p.m.
Clerk/registrar: Geo A Cummer
Location of land: Wexford Co MI
Consideration: $300.00
Notes: Fink C. Burdick was a son of George Burdick and Susie’s brother
Description: NE 1/4 of the NE 1/4 of Sec 4 T23N R10W 29 97/100 acres more or less according to survey.

On the deed I described in this post, John Fenton purchased this piece of land from George Burdick. I believe that John and Susie may have moved to another location in Colfax, or in to Manton.

In the old 1889 Atlas1, the land is show as owned by George Burdick.
