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:||31 March 1932|
|Location:||Wexford County, Michigan|
|Grantor:||Carl A. Lindquist and Emma Lindquist, his wife|
|Grantee:||Alfred Fenton and Hazel Fenton|
|Witnesses:||Harriet Muche, Jno A. Muche|
|Type of deed:||Warranty|
|Rec’d and recording:||7 April 1932|
|Location of land:||Colfax|
|Notes:||NW 1/2 of SE 1/4 Sec 5 T23N R10W|
On the deed recorded in liber 87, page 628, Alfred and Hazel purchased the E 1/2 of the SW 1/4 in section 5. This land is adjacent to that land. This thumbnail, which I created from the 1914 Atlas1 of Wexford County, is the same as the one I posted for the previous deed.
The red outline represents the purchase on this deed, the adjacent land, which was already owned by the Fentons has a diagonal line through it. The blue X at the township line marks the land originally purchased by George Burdick in the township; George was Alfred Fenton’s maternal grandfather. The blue squares mark property along 29 1/4 road which was owned by Harmon H. and Susie Longstreet. Susie was Alfred’s mother.
