According to Oklahoma statutes roads were laid out on section lines numbered in progression,I believe,from west to east and from north to south.See Oklahoma §69 653. Numerical designation of section lines.
From BLM publications on resestablishment and corner analysis....
"In some locales,highways,fences or other cultural features were placed on section lines or property lines. Where a road or fence has been commonly accepted as the section line and there is no better evidence to the contrary, the road or fence monuments the section line by common report. In absence of other means, an obliterated section corner can be restored at the centerline intersection of two such roads or fences that are commonly reported as being the section lines in question"
Does anyone have experience with this in the prairie states and what are your feelings on reliability? Any experience justifying this type of reestablishment in court?
Any input would be appreciated,
