When Should Fraud In Old GLO Notes Cause Concern, Serious Question?

We have a difficult situation in 2011 where a California surveyor is using notes from an 1891 survey that are shown by the notes of another section of the same township and survey that the surveyor was producing fraudulent notes. The prima facie evidence has a surveyor in 1873 setting a dimensioned stone in a mound of rock, and the 1891 surveyor finding a post in a mound of rock.  Then going so far as stating "as established by the guy in 1873"!This is further complicated by the 2011 surveyor…See More

A job a few years ago had me working as a consultant in retracing a 1891 GLO resurvey of a few sections of an 1873 original Survey by W.H. Norway in the coastal mountains of Santa Barbara.In 1978, before I was really working in the business, just getting to understand the issues of retracing GLO lines, I met a prolific South Coast Surveyor named Jed Berkeley Blake, P.L.S. 4786.  He had gone toe to toe with the BLM in court on several occasions and pointed out what he called "prima facie fraud"…See More
