Boden Family In Redford Twp., MI In 1831

Elizabeth (Nicholson) Boden's children inherited property in Redford Twp., Wayne County, Michigan, through their deceased father, Timothy, who presumably inherited the property from his father, George Boden. Timothy's brothers, Luke and William, also had land transactions with the Redford Twp. property. Ann Boden (presumably George Boden's daughter), who was deceased when these deeds were made, was the first wife of Samuel Praigg who then later married a woman affiliated with my family tree.
