Original Highland Township Landowner

Samuel Tompkins

NW 1/4 of SE 1/4 of Section 2         SE 1/4 of SE 1/4 of Section 2

Little is known about this man beyond his name and the fact his patent gives his residence as Monroe County, New York.  He may be the same as the Samuel Tompkins who appears on the 1830 Census for Brighton, Monroe County.  There is no evidence he ever settled on his purchase in Highland Township.
