Burdick Family Land Records, Wexford County, Michigan Liber 24 page 631

This entry is part 18 of 99 in the series Deeds in the Family

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: 6 Sept 1893
Liber: 24
Page: 631
Location: Wexford Co MI
Grantor: Mary Jane Burdick of the Township of Colfax and county of Wexford, State of Michigan
Grantee: Hiram E. Brittain, Village of Manton, County & State aforesaid
Witnesses: N.A. Reynolds, Linda C. Reynolds
Type of deed: Quit Claim
Rec’d and recording: 9 Sept 1893
Clerk/registrar: Samuel J. Wall, registrar
Location of land: Greenwood, Wexford, MI
Consideration: $50.00
Description: NW 1/4 of the NW 1/4 Sec 8 T24N R10W

Mary must have had some interest in this land, perhaps a tax deed. The $50 would not be enough to purchase the 40 acres, even at that time.

Back to the old Atlas1. This land is in the second tier of sections in Greenwood township, 8 miles or so from the Burdick residence on the Greenwood/Colfax township line. This map section does not show the land the Burdicks occupied, and the other map sections in the series do not show this land.
