Grant Township lies just to the east of Ashland Township, where many of the land transactions for the Fellows family occurred. I have suspected that Joel made speculative investments in land in Newaygo County, since I believe he lived in Sandusky Township, Seneca Co., Ohio for many years. However, this deed suggests he was a resident of Newaygo County when the deed was executed. Another tidbit for my investigation.

The location of this land is illustrated on the Ashland Township map from the old Newaygo County Atlas1 .
