MONROE CO. TN 1934 MAP - PART 2 -212 kb
The 1934 is in 2 parts. You'll need to cut and tape them together. I didn't want to shrink it anymore. You can also view this on any of your picture programs and enlarge to see them better.

Quarter section In U.S. land law, one of the square divisions employed in the survey and
designation of public lands containing 160 acres and measuring mile on each side.

Township = 36 square miles or 36 sections

Section = 640 acres or one square mile.

A Fractional Township means just that, its a fraction of a township.

If you see R3E-T2, it means Range 3 East- Township 2, if it had FT, it means fractional township.

Monroe Co. no longer uses Range and Township in present day deed descriptions.
