U.S. Supreme Court

Matson v. Hord, 14 U.S. 1 Wheat. 130 130 (1816)

Matson v. Hord

14 U.S. (1 Wheat.) 130


The law of Kentucky requires, in the location of warrants for land,

some general description designating the place where the particular object is to be found, and a description of the particular object itself.

The general description must be such as will enable a person intending to locate the adjacent residuum and using reasonable care and diligence to find the object mentioned in that particular place and avoid the land already located. If the description will fit another place better, or equally well, it is defective.

"The hunters trace,' leading from Bryant's Station over to the waters of Hinkston, on the dividing ridge between the waters of Hinkston and the waters of Elkhorn," is a defective description, and will nonsupport an entry. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
