Comments on the location information

  • Original coordinates placed this record one township too far north in T6S. A.B. Wilson moved one township south to plot in T7S. This is also where the Gap Ridge mines are. It is possible, if not probable, that this record duplicates the information in the Gap Ridge and Ridge West of Gap Ridge entries.
