Not illustrated. 1914 edition. Excerpt: ...done mainly with plane table over the topographic base prepared by Albert Pike during the preceding summer. The accompanying map (PL VI) is a reproduction on a smaller scale of the field map with portions of the original detail omitted. Only a partial survey of the township has been made by the General Land Office, but a theoretical net has been projected over the remainder of the township for convenience in reference..

They occupy most of the southeastern part of the township and underlie most of sees. 1, 12, 13, 30, 31, and 32, and a strip along the west border of tho township.
