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 Fenton ancestors who resided in Wexford County, Michigan.
|Date:||7 Dec 1932|
|Location:||Wexford County, Michigan|
|Grantor:||Probate Court of Wexford County, MI|
|Type of deed:||License to sell real estate|
|Rec’d and recording:||7 Dec 1932|
|Location of land:||Wexford County, MI|
|Notes:||Alfred T. Fenton, a son of Susie M. Burdick Fenton Longstreet was granted a license to dispose of land in the estate of his step-father, Harmon H. Longstreet. Value of land: $150; Bond: 100|
|Description:||S 1/2 of the SE 1/4 Sec 16 AND the N/12 of the NW1/4 Sec 16 both in T23N R10W|
Harmon Longstreet died 28 June 1981, and his wife Susie lived several more months, passing away on 20 December 1931.
I discussed these parcels yesterday, which were also listed in the deed recorded in Liber 89, page 582. The land which Alfred Fenton was granted a license to sell was equal to 1/2 of Harmon and Susie’s real estate. The estimated value for the two 20 acre pieces was only $150, which is $3.75 an acre. In a drawing which I made from the old 1908 Atlas1, the two parcels in section 16 are those which are described in this deed.
