This entry is part 4 of 9 in the series Deeds from other families

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.

This deed contains the record of another purchase of land in Section 1 of Colfax for a Burdick family. I have not connected these purchasers to either our Burdick family, or the other Burdick family I described here.

Grantor: Nellie Wolfe
Grantee: Lafayette Burdick & Laura J. Burdick of Jamestown NY
Witnesses: F. G. Bullock; W.W. Gasser
Type of deed: Warranty
Rec’d and recording: 30 Nov 1908
Clerk/registrar: Elou Lossie
Location of land: Sherman Village
Consideration: $750
Description: Start 1023 feet S of the NE corner of Section 1, T23N R12W then 165 ft S, then 330 Ft W, the 165 Ft N, then 330 Ft east to the start

I haven’t researched these Burdicks. This land is in in the portion of the plat of the village of Sherman that is in Springville Township. Wexford, Hanover, Springville and Antioch townships meet on what was the “Newaygo & Northport State Road”. It is difficult to find the exact location of the property described. Adding up the measurements listed on this plat, it looks like the property was either in block 2 or block 3. Today’s descriptions are for entire blocks, since Sherman is thinly populated. Crippen’s Addition is not listed in the State wide subdivision maps.
