I’m following a 1901 survey and the survey is amazingly accurate. It is different from what I’m used to. I’m running closing corners which are original stones and they are less than a tenth “off” line and that’s from locating the center of controlling corner stones and center of closing corner stones. Reading the notes the name of the surveyor E.C. Sampson makes me think of a different survey hundreds of miles away. That older survey isn’t nearly as accurate, but for the time I consider it one of the better 1881 surveys. That surveyor was W.C. Sampson. Possibly related, either way they both were very good, at least from what I’ve seen.
