Hi Maggie, I am not sure where Mesick is, but my grandfather, Marcellus White Adams was born in Cherry Grove Township, near Cadillac in Wexford County in 1897. His father, George Douglas Adams had a farm there.
According to the Federal Census of 1900 for Cherry Grove Township, George Adams and his wife Eva and children Worden, Lola, and Marcellus, plus a brother William and nephew Jasper lived there.George stated he was born in 1865, that his father's family came from Virginia, and his mother from New York. His occupation was listed as farming.William's occupation was farm laborer, and Jasper's occupation was day laborer.
1908 Plat map: George Adams owned 80 acres on South 48 1/2 Mile Rd. in Cherry Grove Township, located on a dead end road close to the river. His occupation was listed as a farmer.
