In the mid 1980s US 59 was widened.

A few miles north of Queen City, Texas one of the few remaining original Headright Boundary still intact with cut stone monuments and witness trees at each end with many original trees along the entire boundary were labeled "DO NOT DISTURB & KEEP AS NATURAL" on the plans of the Federal Funded project.

It would have been in the center median of the completed project.

However, all was completely destroyed.

Some of the DOT personnel disappeared during and after the project was completed.

How close are you to US 59.  I'm a mile and a half.

Long way from Laredo, TX to somewhere on the northern border of Minnesota.  Just for kicks I would like to fly to Laredo, rent a car, drive to the other end and, then, probably hitchhike somewhere to fly home.  Supposed to be 1911 miles in length.

My story is very minor compared to these.  Did a simple one lot survey.  Less than 30 days later I had another job in the same block.  Three out of four of the bars set less than 30 days earlier were easily found.  Where the heck is number four?  Then I saw the new gas service line running to the house.  The trench was only four inches wide but must have been centered directly through the bar.  Never did find the bar.  The probably saw the flag and decided it was an indicator of where to run the line.

This monument must have just been in the way. Not sure which utility took it out. The witness post is still standing undisturbed.
