favorite this post Lee & Scott Counties, Virginia...Surveyor Field Note Books...8 Books - $175 hide this posting unhide

condition: fair

Selling 8 survey, field note books from surveyor Milo Taylor. Notes are from 1894-1918. They have hand written notes from many local surveys. I have books numbered: 2, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 12 & 15. 6 of these books cover over 35,000 acres from (mostly) Lee & Scott counties in SW Virginia. Some of the surveys were from the following towns: Norton, Duffield, Wise, Appalachia, Gate City, Slant Church, Big Stone Gap, Bristol and others.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase all this local history. Reading some of the surveys is very interesting. This is when they used chains for measuring. This is good information to backup your opinions. Also of interest are the names and locations of different families.

If you need more information or pictures let me know. Price is negotiable, taking reasonable offers. Prefer PayPal. Free USA shipping.
