When I am able to return to the Newaygo County Court House in White Cloud, I will have a goal of getting a more complete picture of the Fellows land transactions in the area. The location of the land Henry and Melissa sold under this deed is illustrated on the Ashland Township map from the old Newaygo County Atlas1.
