Interesting pre-civil war Survey in South Carolina.

The map shows a section of Land on the Great Pee Dee River, near Jordan's Lake, in modern Horry County, South Carolina.

The map also locates Grier's Creek. This section of land was the subject of litigation in the early 1840s, which ultimately reached the South Carolina Supreme Court.

The map states:

At the request of H & S Bel & Samuel Grier Junr. I have ???? and laid out until Samuel Grier Junr. a tract of Land containing One Hundred & Forty Acres of Georgetown District and Three Hundred and Ninety Five acres in Marion District Being part of a tract known as the Petersfield tract and having such form and marks as the above tract represents.

Surveyed 29th Dec. 1854 C.B. Sarvis D.S.

James A. Pouncy & Samuel Grier Jr. Chain Bearers

The map was created by C.B. Sarvis, who was the District Surveyor. We locate a C.B. Sarvis (1803-1870), who died in Horry, South Carolina.
