In addition to Paul's comments, your situation, Carmen, may lend itself to
the necessity of locating deeds of the neighbors -- the meander on your deed
may be more aptly described on another deed.

You can only plot a deed that contains no more than 1 undefined meander.
Your deed has four sides and three meanders, and cannot be plotted.
you do have a great description that includes the intersection of
creeks. What I do in these situations is to look at a map and approximate
the bearings along watercourses and just include a note with the LM saying
that the bearing does not actually appear in the deed.

I have read the "meanders" help examples, but it really doesn't help me
with the example. Can anyone tell me how to deal with two meanders at the
end of the description?
crossing Turkey Cock Creek near the mouth to a red oak;
to a white oak on the East side of Snow Creek then down Snow Creek;
to the mouth and up Pigg River;
to the first station;
