Changes Over Time in the Plat of Cedar Creek Township, Particularly Sec. 28

"Joseph Matea"
Charles A. Royce's Maps show Metea's Village (Sec 28 Cedar Creek Township) in 1828 as located at the confluence of the St. Joseph's Branch of the Maumee River and Cedar Creek, just below the convergence of Cedar Creek (Old Villages) and Cedar River which runs through Auburn.



Historical accounts state that Sec. 28 was once entirely an Indian Reservation over which was platted the town of Cedarville. The 1864 Plat of Sec 28 in Cedarville, shows that Clarence Kryder's father, Harrison W. Kryder, married (in 1860) to Mary Ann Treace, a Chief's daughter, occupied the parcel of land (left)on the confluence of the St. Joseph's Branch of the Maumee River and Cedar Creek. The J. Krider on the right shaded parcel was Clarence's grandfather John III, a Justice of the Peace, married to Eliza Peppel.

The 1905 Plat of Sec 28 in Cedarville shows that Clarence and Minnie Kryder occupied the 40 acre parcel of land on the left bank of the St. Joseph River while Krims had the right. Next door was Harrison and Clyde (Clarence's brother) Kryder's spot. Clyde Kryder was married to Daisy Maxfield. In the late 1940's a Deed of Easement from Clyde to the electric company was returned to Clarence for safekeeping.

The modern Plat of Sec 28 in Cedar Creek Township, shows that the course of the River itself has been altered for construction of Slentz Grainary, which borders a subdivision, Leo-Cedarville reservoir and Metea park.
