U.S. Supreme Court

Hardin v. Shedd, 190 U.S. 508 (1903)

Hardin v. Shedd

No. 66

Argued January 12, 1903

Decided May 18, 1903

190 U.S. 508


When the United States conveys land bounded on a nonnavigable lake, it assumes the position, so far as such conveyances are concerned, of a private owner, subject to the general law of the state in which the land is situate.

Since Hardin v. Jordan, 140 U. S. 371, the law of Illinois has been settled that conveyances of the upland on such lakes do not carry adjoining lands below the water line.

When land is conveyed by the United States on a nonnavigable lake the rules of law affecting the conveyance are different from those affecting a conveyance of land bounded on navigable waters.

The common law as understood by this Court and the local law of Illinois with regard to grants bounded by navigable waters are the same.

The case is stated in the opinion of the court. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
