William Coates' Lapeer Property In Probate

Many Lapeer County, Michigan, probate records are online at FamilySearch.  Since the Lapeer County probate record group has long been an interest of mine, periodically browsing through the records is one of my new, favorite hobbies.

A land record is just one of the items that might surface in a probate file.  Below is a property description from the William Coates probate/estate file (#653) as an example:

The West half of the East half of the Northeast Quarter of Section Fourteen Town Six North of Range Nine East in the County of Lapeer and State of Michigan containing forty acres of land __ the same more or less..value at five hundred dollars ($500.00).
