    All states have a story about how its state boundaries were determined. But few have the complex situation that comprised the state of Alabama. From being part of Georgia, then the Mississippi Territory, before becoming its own Territory, then a state of its own. Throw in being part of England, Spain and France and you have a great story. Some boundaries are on water, some old Indian treaties, some by agreement between state leaders, and some being a latitudes or Meridians.

    Spend some time with Milton Denny as he spins this tale of the history of the great State of Alabama. Learn the status of the current corners and the effort of the Alabama Society of Professional Land Surveyors working to perpetuate this Alabama history. This work gives ASPLS meaning.

    The old timers knew how to proof or sometimes called proving a corner meant. Much of this skill has been lost to many modern surveyors that think the correct location is found in their computer or in the GPS equipment. Let Milton walk you through the office and field steps necessary to locate or proof a field corner. We all know the pin farm dilemma that has come about because surveyors understand very little about rules of evidences.

    Start with copies of field notes and section corner plats. Try to find any corner recovery cards or records. These could be from BLM (GLO), Forest Service, CCC, WPA or county courthouse. Also from any old surveys or private surveyors notes. Study the material carefully. Then to the field to recover the corners. Computers and GPS are survey tools not determining evidence.
