  • Lower right corner: Remarks-- This line of road is almost all through burnt woods and without any swamps so that 25 men were more able to go through with it than 50 men could do in a straight line--this year's labor did all from the Black river to the stake marked on the road west from the mill. To avoid great contention the N.W. burns were made. David McGregor Survr.
