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.

The latest on-line atlas, from 19141 shows that this land was in possession of “Williams Bros”, perhaps a lumber company. I am not familiar with the name. Among my transcriptions, I do not have a record of Harmon and Susie purchasing this land. I probably missed quite a few “Longstreet” deeds, since I was concentrating on the Fenton name. This thumbnail is from that 1914 atlas, you can enlarge the map if you wish. You can see the two twenty acre pieces that Longstreet owned, the one on the west side of the road backs up to this forty acre piece.
