The above plat is a representation of a plat of Land surveyed by Neill McKay as surveyor of Sumter County surveyed on the 8th of July 1871 Containing 300 Acres more or less suposed to be worth in gold not more than $500 dollars and surveyed for Mrs. Homer Burton and the survey is worth 10 dollars for it is 13 miles west of Americus. Surveyed on the 8th July 1871 by Neill McKay surveyor.The above plat is a representation of a plat of Land surveyed by Neill McKay as surveyor of Sumter County surveyed on the 8th of July 1871 Containing 300 Acres more or less suposed to be worth in gold not more than $500 dollars and surveyed for Mrs. Homer Burton and the survey is worth 10 dollars for it is 13 miles west of Americus. Surveyed on the 8th July 1871 by Neill McKay surveyor.

(Transcriber's note: This plat is for land located in district 17 of Sumter county and the purpose of the plat is unknown, however the individual who requested the survey is of some interest to Schley researchers and historians. Mrs. Homer Burton was wife of Homer W. Burton, only son of Capt. Robert Burton. She was born Clifford H. Tison, child of Hiram and Catherine J. Tison/Tyson, and married Homer Burton in Schley county on the 18th July 1865. In looking at a land lot map for the 17th district, it appears that the western edge of the parcel of lot 58 is probably defined by TyTy creek, which presumably flows into the Kinchafoonee.)
