Wow that map looks like pre-1920s, by 1972 the subdivisions were much more sophisticated that that.

Very poorly drawn considering it is from 1972 but this crap is surprisingly quite common.

Unfortunately that is far from the worst plat on record from that time period.  Tom Williams did do some decent measuring, he just didn't draft it very well.  I usually had decent luck finding his iron pins also.

You have the map; and the bearing between lot 1 and 2 is printed on it. Can you NOT read it?

Yes, but the written bearing is nearly perpendicular to that which one would guess from the direction of the lines.

No I cannot. The photo is far better than a copy and it vaguely apprears to read N 89-30 E for 418 feet. 

I know the bearing is wrong and possibly could be N 0-30 E. Doing some rough checking and it looks like all the side line distances go to the center of the road.

Thanks for clarifying that information for me.

if the same person owns both lots, it doesn't matter.  Use the distances along the south and north lines of the lots.

The same person owns Lots 2 & 3 with the creek the dividing line. Gonna have to locate the wrested vegetation line as well as the centerline and banks.

It appears to be parallel to the other interior lot lines, except the ones running along the creek. These lines all look to be running a little to the right of a 90 degree angle from the southerly perimeter boundary, so I vote for N 23-30 E.

Yeah you have fun with that. I am looking at that plat on a 27" monitor and I couldn't tell you what any of the bearings are.
