Piedra Lumbre Map

Most of the maps for land grants look like this, rectangular.  The alcalde mayor had to draw out a sketch in order to show boundaries, neighbors, land marks, and more.  This one obviously has lined paper and not drawn by the alcalde in 1766.

Reference:  Spanish Archives of New Mexico, Series I, Reel 20, Frames 832-.
