Index to Town of Lisbon History by Section

Below are some examples from Garret Vliet field book as reported back to the General Surveyor. Note that Section 25 ismarked with a large area of “prairie”. This is the location where Thomas Spencer Redford and his father’s family choose to settle. With open land readily available, it must have made clearing and planting much less of a labor during their early settlement time.
