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.
|Date:||2 May 1885|
|Location:||Wexford Co MI|
|Grantor:||John P. Fenton & Susie M. Fenton of Colfax Wexford County MI|
|Grantee:||Fink C. Burdick of County & State aforesaid|
|Witnesses:||Charles L. Palmer, George W. Burdick|
|Type of deed:||Quit Claim|
|Rec’d and recording:||2 May 1885 12 p.m.|
|Clerk/registrar:||Geo A Cummer|
|Location of land:||Wexford Co MI|
|Notes:||Fink C. Burdick was a son of George Burdick and Susie’s brother|
|Description:||NE 1/4 of the NE 1/4 of Sec 4 T23N R10W 29 97/100 acres more or less according to survey.|
On the deed I described in this post, John Fenton purchased this piece of land from George Burdick. I believe that John and Susie may have moved to another location in Colfax, or in to Manton.
In the old 1889 Atlas1, the land is show as owned by George Burdick.
