The Farm

The small Flewelling farm was formed by lot 72 and lot 84.

Lot 72 , 20 acres, was owned by Samuel Flewelling and Amaret Flewelling. In 1889, Amaret deeded the land to her son, Charles H Flewelling.

Lot 84 , 10 acres, was conveyed to Charles H Flewelling by Boyd A Flewelling in 1892.

Charles H Flewelling died in 1939 without a will so his property was divided among his children and their heirs. His youngest son, Milton Flewelling, worked and lived on the farm all his life.

In 1953, all the heirs (and spouses) signed over their portion to Milton.

The children of Charles were Alice, Charles, Mabel, Harvey. One daughter, Jennie died in 1931 so her children, Montford, Fern, Mavis, Louise signed the document. The remaining signatures are the spouses.
