Message Board Post:
This may be true. Another interesting story...In 1976 a notice was posted at the
courthouse in Walton asking any Launt with a claim to 600 acres along Launt Hollow Rd. to
come forward. It seems that those living along the road couldn't get clear title. I
believe that Walter Launt, husband of Ada Taylor who died in a flood along the same road,
simply left the property. In any event, my father who was living in Binghamton, NY just
40 or 50 miles away never saw the posting. The court, after the posting was up for the
statutory time, had a hearing and the residents who simply moved in were given clear title
to their land.
