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 . This group pertain to Papa’s Fellows ancestors who resided in Newaygo County, Michigan.

Date: 1 January 1873
Liber: 13
Page: 630
Location: Newaygo County, MI
Grantor: A large group
Grantee: H.H. Fellows
Type of deed: Warranty
Rec’d and recording: 26 Sept 1876
Clerk/registrar: Persons
Location of land: Grant Township, Newaygo County, MI
Consideration: $400

The location of this land is illustrated by the blue outline on the Grant Township map from the old Newaygo County Atlas1 . The red outline shows land owned by Joel B. Fellows. When I transcribed the deed, I did not know which Henry Fellows had purchased this land, I now know the original purchase was made by Henry H. Fellows ( b. ca 1839). His nephew was only 13 in 1873, too young to have purchased the land.
