How We Became the States of Mississippi and Alabama

Description: From the first Land Office in Natchez, to running of the Washington, St. Stevens, and Huntsville Meridian’s. The people involved and the instructions and methods used for doing the work. First instructions used in the lower part of Alabama before Statehood of Alabama, and how this may affect your work today.

Running the State line between Mississippi and Alabama by John Coffee and Thomas Freeman that made statehood possible. Official act by GLO before statehood was to run boundaries dividing states into equal areas. How Freeman ran Meridians with sextant for location. How accurate was the work and how do I find the records today. Update on ASPLS monumentation of state corners.
