    This is a Atlas map of a partial east end half of DUNHAM twp. in 1875. Most of this cropped map was once a part of Warren twp. until 1855 when Dunham was formed.

According to the "original" Treasure Duplicate Book for 1838, JOHN DODGE was taxed for 75 acres in Lot #264 of R9 T1 S35. JOEL DODGE was taxed for 160 acres in Lot #265 R9 T1 S35. THIS IS THE CLOSEST LINK THAT I CAN FIND THAT PLACES MY JOEL DODGE with CAPTIAN JOHN DODGE. Shows also where WILLARD & ELIZABETH (COLE)GREENE, SR. lived before 1839.
