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 with each post.

I don’t have a record of how George acquired this land, I just have missed that deed. Another possibility is that it was recorded when Wexford was attached to Brown County, or Missaukee county for administrative purposes.
Once again, I have based my drawing on the old atlas1 of Wexford County; the land transferred is outlined in green.
