Alexander Boneparte Sanchez' Farm in Archer

I wanted to get this information posted about where the farm was located before the end of the Yulee Days Celebration this week (details were posted on this blog earlier.)

Using the Alachua County Appraiser's maps, the Bounty Land Grant and Google Maps it should be shown here, in the blue box. The legal description is the East half of the Northwest quarter and West half of the Northeast quarter of Section 17 of Township 11-S, Range 18-E. The area is 160 acres. The description comes from copy of Alexander B. Sanchez' Bounty Land Grant in Alachua County's Deed Book "E" page 124. A bit convoluted, but a treasure.

I hope to be in Archer on Friday and Saturday.

An excellent San Felasco mapping was done by the State already.

You can find it or download it from http://www.floridamemory.com/Collections/SpanishLandGrants/PDF/Alachua.pdf
