Scope and Content Note

These volumes contain field notes of land belonging to the Holland Land Company, the Ogden Land Company, the Connecticut Tract, and Andrew Craigie's holdings. Most or all of the land surveyed was in Genesee, Erie, and Orleans counties.

The volumes provide: general remarks on the landscape and land quality; township and/or range number; lot number; section number (volume 3); acreage of lots; brief descriptions of lots; diagrams of lots (volumes 1, 2); measurements of lots; and valuations of lots per acre (volumes 2, 4).

Volume 3 appears to be an original; the others were apparently copied from the originals for David E. E. Mix.
