    Homestead contested on Isle Royal, MI about 1910

    Newbie

      My GrGrandfather, Henry Norman filed for a Homestead on Isle Royal, MI about 1910.   A Mr. Zahl  filed for the same property and there were two hearings. The first in Marquette, MI where Henry Norman was awarded it.   Mr. Zahl filed an appeal and a second hearing was held in Duluth, MN where Henry lived.  That court overturned the first one and Mr. Zahl was given the patent.

      I have been trying unsuccessfully to find these records.
