What a great find!

Last night I was at the Farmington (Oakland Co, Michigan) Genealogy Society meeting where I picked up a couple of books offered from the bequest collection of Peter J. Schaldenbrand. See my most recent books tab for the full list.

The book in question is Land Owners Maps of Historical Farmington Township, Vol 1, 1822-1830 by Peter J, Schaldenbrand. Above is the hand drawn and labeled plat map for 1827. The lower left corner of Section 24 shows the 80 acres of land owned by Horatio Lee, my Great-Great-Great-Grandfather. In addition, it is noted that he held that parcel since 1825!

Also on this map, in section 8 & 9, I find Joseph Munn, the brother of Horatio’s wife, Hannah.

By 1830, section 24 has been fully allocated and Horatio is still there.

What is not covered is the actual town of Farmington where Horatio’s father, William Lee and mother Mary Summers Lee resided and William was the shoemaker for the village.
