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.
This deed contains the record of another purchase of land in Section 1 of Colfax for a Burdick family. I have not connected these purchasers to either our Burdick family, or the other Burdick family I described here.
|Date:||9 Nov 1908|
|Location:||Wexford Co., MI|
|Grantee:||Lafayette Burdick & Laura J. Burdick of Jamestown NY|
|Witnesses:||F. G. Bullock; W.W. Gasser|
|Type of deed:||Warranty|
|Rec’d and recording:||30 Nov 1908|
|Location of land:||Sherman Village|
|Description:||Start 1023 feet S of the NE corner of Section 1, T23N R12W then 165 ft S, then 330 Ft W, the 165 Ft N, then 330 Ft east to the start|
I haven’t researched these Burdicks. This land is in in the portion of the plat of the village of Sherman that is in Springville Township. Wexford, Hanover, Springville and Antioch townships meet on what was the “Newaygo & Northport State Road”. It is difficult to find the exact location of the property described. Adding up the measurements listed on this plat, it looks like the property was either in block 2 or block 3. Today’s descriptions are for entire blocks, since Sherman is thinly populated. Crippen’s Addition is not listed in the State wide subdivision maps.
