Original Highland Township Landowner

Oliver Baldwin

SW 1/4 of SW 1/4 of Section 12

Little is known about this man beyond his name and the fact his patent gives his residence as Oakland County, Michigan.  An Oliver Baldwin appears on the 1840 Census for Troy, Oakland County.   A James Hickey is also found the 1840 Census for Troy and is likely Baldwin's co-purchaser of the parcel in Section 12 as well as the James S. Hickey who purchased land in Section 5.
