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.
The next two transactions involve the NE 1/4 of the NE 1/4 of Section 4, T23N R10W.

Fink and Cora Burdick acquired the NE 1/4 of the NE 1/4 on the deed recorded in liber 14, page 616. These deeds make it seem as if Fink borrowed some money from the Thomas’s, and the interest was $53.33 at the time the loan was repaid. If that is the case, it may be significant that the loan was repaid on 15 May 1911, just seven days after Mary Jane Abbott Burdick died. Or, I may be imagining things. I often think that dreams are logical.
The land described in these deeds is the “top” half of GW’s fractional 80 which he purchased from his brother–in-law, Erasmus D. Abbott back in 1874. I profiled that deed here and explored what I learned from it here.
