Henry H. Fellows died 19 September 1905 at the hospital in Big Rapids, Mecosta Co., Michigan. Belle had the need for some cash; apparently she sold her Newaygo County property to obtain it.
The village of Denver was located just north of the 40 acres owned by Henry and Belle. You can click on the thumbnail to better see the location of the land is illustrated on the Ashland Township map from the old Newaygo County Atlas1 .
