Mappy Monday - Hopewell Township, Mercer County, Ohio

On January 5, 1884, Timothy Creeden was deeded 40 acres of land in Hopewell Township, Mercer County, Ohio from Cassimer and Sarah Wright for $1050. His land was located in the southwest corner of Section 15 of the township. On February 16, 1887, 10 acres on one of the corners were leased to John Shawler. Timothy owned the land until his death in 1899 when it passed to his wife Mary Ann Matson Creeden. On September 29, 1901, Mary A. Creeden granted a mortgage to Bessie Copeland for the SW 1/4 tract. This is recorded in Mortgage book 75, page 264 in Mercer County.
