Born, raised and living in Texas were we use rocks, trees and iron rods if your lucky. We
used veras as a unit of measure for many years. See
for information on Public Land
Survey System (PLSS).
Why would anyone want to plot land where townships and ranges are use? One reason would
be to see who lived next to who. You might also be interested in https://www.arphax.com/
