Abstract:

Shows territory in west central Wisconsin and southeastern Minnesota; triangular tract roughly bounded by present day Saint Paul (Minn.) and Iron and Wood Counties (Wis.). Drawn on a General Land Office township grid; many individual townships include names of title claimants. "Explanation" contains 13 lines of text describing the limits of a land grant purportedly given to explorer Jonathan Carver by two Dakota Indian chiefs in 1767. Beginning after Carver's 1780 death and well into the twentieth century, his descendants and other parties repeatedly made unsuccessful claims on the so-called "Carver grant."
