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.

|Type of deed:||Probate order confirming sale|
|Rec’d and recording:||7 Dec 1932|
|Location of land:||Colfax, Wexford|

|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|
This is the land that Alfred Fenton was granted a license to sell by the probate court. The deed which granted him the license was recorded in liber 101 page 180.
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 20 acre parcels in section 16 are those which we sold in this deed.
