Paper Train Subdivision
There was a paper train subdivision of 15 tracts averaging about 10 acres per tract. I’m now splitting up a 10 acre tract for a family exemption. Of course many of the lines were originally described by aliquot parts. My 10 acre tract is bounded on the south by a E-W CL of a 1/4 and on the east by the N-S CL of that same 1/4. Over the years other surveys have surrounded the paper train and there were “discrepancies” revealed. Basically I have competing Record of Surveys and deeds that use different theories to “breakdown” the section. I’ve worked through everything and set final corners. One of the 1/16 corner monuments I have on good authority was stabbed in the ground at an old fence corner that a farmer pulled over from the county road and eyeballed in. There is no recorded section breakdown for it. Anyway I locate the pin at the old fence corner with every intention of using it. I put in the section lines that I have from other surveys and it’s .18′ off E and .8′ N.
I look at the patents and it was a boundary corner in the original patents. I don’t know, doesn’t seem possible, but there it is.
