I have not discovered the deed which shows Henry H. (b ca 1839) purchasing this land. However, on the 1880 atlas he si shown as the owner of the SW 1/4 of the piece. Once again, Henry’s nephew is listed as, Henry H. Fellows, Jr.”.
The location of this land is illustrated on the Ashland Township map from the old Newaygo County Atlas1, you may click to enlarge the thumbnail and see a larger view.
