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:||3 December 1932|
|Location:||Wexford County, Michigan|
|Grantor:||Harmon H. Longstreet estate by Alfred Fenton, Administrator|
|Grantee:||Andy Burgess & Hazel Burgess his wife|
|Witnesses:||Harriet Knapp and Herbert A. Snider|
|Type of deed:||deed in pursuance to land contract|
|Rec’d for recording:||25 January 1935|
|Location of land:||Colfax, Wexford, MI|
|Notes:||Hazel Burgess was the daughter of Henry Fellows and Belle Lamunion. The Fenton and Fellow families were closely associated in Wexford Co. However, Hazel was not related to Susie Burdick Fenton Longstreet, nor her son Alfred.|
|Description:||SE 1/4 of SW 1/4 Section 9 T23N R10W|
This land was the 40 acres which I have marked in blue on the thumbnail of the 1908 atlas1. It is north of the Longstreet’s two 20 acre pieces which were sold to Myron ad Edna Russ on the deed recorded in Liber 101-433, under license granted on the deed recorded in Liber 101 page 180.
According to the deed, $100 had already been paid to the Longstreets. The deed also said that the land contract was made 3 April 1931 between Harmon H. Longstreet and Susie Longstreet, his wife, and Andy Burgess and Hazel Burgess his wife. The witnesses to the land contract were Alfred T. Fenton and Hazel J. Fenton.
Next: Another deed which completes the Longstreet’s estate.
