On the deed recorded in liber 87, page 628, Alfred and Hazel purchased the E 1/2 of the SW 1/4 in section 5. This land is adjacent to that land. This thumbnail, which I created from the 1914 Atlas1 of Wexford County, is the same as the one I posted for the previous deed.

The red outline represents the purchase on this deed, the adjacent land, which was already owned by the Fentons has a diagonal line through it. The blue X at the township line marks the land originally purchased by George Burdick in the township; George was Alfred Fenton’s maternal grandfather. The blue squares mark property along 29 1/4 road which was owned by Harmon H. and Susie Longstreet. Susie was Alfred’s mother.
