LuAnne,

I checked my current Oakland County street maps and can not find a Tibbits or Tibbets road northeast of Farmington.

However, if you go the online Oakland County Plat map for pre-1940??, Southfield Twp at: http://www.livgenmi.com/1940oaklandatlas~southfield.htm you will see two parecels owned by an R. Tibbits. One is in Section 7 and the other is in Section 18. Southfield Twp. is immediately east of Farmington Twp., so this location for the R. Tibbits properties is northeast of the town/city of Farmington.

Further, the northern-most road [top line] on the Southfield Plat map is today's 14 Mile Rd. The next major east-west line down [running betweeen Section 6 & 7 and north of the north Tibbits parcel] is today's 13 Mile Road. The next major east-west line down [running between Section 7 & 18 and north of the south Tibbits parcel] is today's 12 Mile Road.

The western edge of Southfield Twp. is Inkster Road. Diagonally across the intersection of 13 Mile Road & Inkster from R. Tibbits northern parcel is Franklin Hills Country Club. This can be seen in Section 1 of Farmington Twp. at: http://www.livgenmi.com/1940oaklandatlas~farmington.htm This is the closest golf club to the Tibbits property that I am aware of.

Jerry
