*The majority of the supplemental information found in the "notes" section of this listing is the work of Jim Harbison in 2000 and is dedicated to his memory.

Section and Row definitions. 

For reference, arbitrary sections were defined for this listing.  The “West” section lies west of the access lane and the “East” section east lies within the bounds of the county road on the north and the access road on the north, south and east.  Rows were numbered in the “East” section beginning on the west side and they were numbered from the east side of the “West” section.

Row numbers within the “East” section are “difficult” to assign because some rows in the north-center are not well aligned.  Therefore, assignment of row numbers is somewhat arbitrary.  This work attempted to maintain a complete north/south row, even when a section could arguably be assigned to an adjacent row.
