I have an Atlas and Farm Directory of Crawford County listed by Township plats dated 1914. If you would like me to look up any information, please contact me. Does anyone else have a similar book with a different date? This lists property owners by family name, members and length of time in the township.

Hi Bob: I checked all townships in the book and I'm sorry there were no families named Dove. Any others you want me to check - this is a great book!!

Thanks for checking, Sally. Would you look for two more, both in Clayton Township. John Ryan and Michael Ryan (they were father and son and had two different locations). If you don't mind, email me direct at BobSch4414@AOL.com

Thanks

According to the plat map for Clayton Township, Crawford Co., Michael Ryan owned 160 acres next to a property owned by Ed Dove consisting of 40 acres in sections 20 and 21. Then in township 10N Range 3 sections 27 and 28 an Ed Dove owned 40 acres and 80 acres next to each other. They are not listed as property owners in the alpha listing, but it shows them on the map for the township. These sections are about 5 miles east of Gays Mills.
Then in 1956 farmers directory(only alpha list no map) there are still Ryan family members living in Clayton Twnshp, Gays Mills(Paul) and Soldiers Grove(Walter, John and Bill).

Would you mind looking up Abrams name in your farm Atlas. John Newton Abrams owned a farm east of Gays Mills in an area called Rolling Ground. It was in the family for over 70 years. The last owner being Charles Abrams in the 1950s.

Linda: I checked the whole book - there is no reference to any McDonald's which I find strange. When I was growing up, there were lots of McDonald's in that area. Anything else I can check for you? Sal
