More in Section 16. Papa’s families populated this area for much of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Many of the names which appear in today’s atlas are cousins, or descendents of other landowners of that time.
Here is the location of the land, which I plotted on a portion of a page from an old 1914 Atlas1 of Wexford County, here is a visual of the land in question.
