The surveys were done March 23-30, 1907.  Adolph Funke was the County Surveyor and they were done by R. E. Libby Depupty County Surveyor.

It’s fun to find spot the names of the families that farmed along these two roads. My family purchased the J. Malm piece in 1946 and still lives on a section of it today.
