An excellent example of an original township corner marked on all four sides with hash marks, letters, and numerals. This monument represents the corner common to Townships 6 & 7 North, and Ranges 5 & 6 East. Jonathan P. Jones stated in his notes that he set a Sandstone 18"x10"x8". Field measurements on the day of excavation found it to be 19"x9"x8". The location is on the Gage/Lancaster County line one-half mile west and one mile south of Hallam, Nebraska. Also found was a red brick marked "HD35" which was placed by Deputy State Surveyor Hugh Dillon as a memorial.
