Description: Lot # 19 in bloc 37 in Geo. A. Mitchell’s Plat of the NW1/4 of Section 3 in T21N R9W


The plat can be found in the Michigan Subdivision maps. Here is the portion of the plat which contains the lot described in the deed, which is at the corner of Prospect and Chapin Streets. If you are not familiar with Cadillac you would not realize that Chapin is a nearly east/west street. It is certainly not evident from this map. The current address of this property is 452 East Chapin street. Unfortunately, Google Street Views are rare in Cadillac, and do not include this house.


On the 1900 census, William and Elizabeth (Long) Kaiser were living on Wood Street; that street is know known as Mitchell. Maybe a subsequent deed will show his disposition of this property.
