Investigations of the Coal Fields of Wyoming by the United States Geological Survey in 1907

Excerpt from Investigations of the Coal Fields of Wyoming by the United States Geological Survey in 1907 The Sheridan field is covered by public-land surveys, and no maps other than township plats were available for field use, with the excep tion that a small part of the coal area west of the longitude of Sheridan is within the Dayton quadrangle and has been surveyed topographic ally. The principal object in the survey being the classification of the coal land, it was necessary that all points should be located with reference to the Land Office unit of subdivision - the section. Many of the section corners could not be found, even in the larger valleys where settlements have been made. In the rougher parts of the field the number of corners that could be found was still less, and many of those that were located contained no distinctive markings. Local county and other surveyors report that great difficulty has been encountered in locating settlers upon their lands, the only corners that could be found being in many cases several miles distant from these lands. Moreover, the locations of stream crossings on section lines and of other topographic features shown on the township plats were found to be so erroneous as to suggest that a considerable part of the land subdivisions had never been made.
