What's the bearing?
I am still working on this but here is the model.
The use of color on the map greatly aids comprehension. We don't use it much here because it is not allowed, by statute, on the recorded maps.
I have found that my eyes are less strained using a white background and my boundary drawings have 5 layers with red, blue, black, magenta and green.
Late to the party..
Next time on research, try bringing in tinted report covers, and laying them over the plat. Yellow works best, but make sure you have orange and pink with you. You can do the same thing with a photo editor on your computer.
As for the bearing, it's an obvious blunder. I would compute my search coordinates using the distances along the boundary and street, then use the found monuments to solve the real world lines. Looks like a fun (and typical) job...
