I have very little information with regard to Mary Scofield, the wife of Henry H. Fellows. Henry Scofield was Papa’s 3rd great-grandfather. I did notice this deed several years ago when I was collecting information in Newaygo County. I am glad I have this clue to pursue as I extend research on Mary and her family.

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