Central Pacfic land plat in Nevada county, California

From: "Ian Garfinkel"

I have been hunting for information on a 160 acre parcel that I purchased in 2005. It was part of a RR Grant, and not sold of until 1946.

The land was part of Patent # 5 in Nevada county California.

The location is:

Section 3 Township 16North Range7 East MDBL.

I have been trying to prove the existence of the road that runs through this property.

This road may show up on the Rail Road land Plat Map.

I have spent a great deal of time researching this property and I have correspondence from SP land Co. regarding a power plant and The Excelsior ditch that you may be interested in.

If you can help in any way please reply.

Suggest you visit the Nevada County Surveyors Office, they have maps back to 1850. Also, the California Bureau of Mines has topo maps in great detail, free for viewing in Sacramento, these maps also go back to 1850.
