Sorting through my records, I found a few transcriptions which are a bit out of order. This is why no one in their right mind would ask me to index or alphabetize anything; I might get it right, and I might not. This lot is back to the area that Burdick’s owned in Block B of the first plot of the village of Cedar Creek. In the old 1889 Atlas1, from which I clipped and marked this drawing it looked like this:

after 7-130

Out of order or not, that is the story of how George Burdick disposed of Lot 4, block B.
