  North one half (N1/2) of north east one quarter (NE1/4) and southeast 
  one quarter (SE1/4) of the  southeast one quarter (SE1/4) of Sec 14
  [ where Lyman and Helen Morrison were born]
  and northeast one quarter (NE1/4)  of northeast one quarter (NE1/4).   
  Section 23--77--12   $2800  160 acres.
  [this would lie in an L shape --Lyman]
  [?? I think Lyman or someone left out a word or two. The only way
   this makes sense is if it is the N 1/2 of the NE 1/4 of Sec 23
   and the SE 1/4 of the SE 1/4 of Section 14
   AND the NE 1/4 of the SE 1/4 of Section 14 (not NE1/4 of NE 1/4)
   That gives an L of 160 acres which Lyman indicated

On the 1874 Adams Twp. map W & J Morrison own an 160, SE 1/4 of Sec 6. 
On the 1887 Adams Twp map Wm Morrison owns the N1/2 of SE 1/4 Sec 6 (80 acres)
and W J White owns the other 80.  And of Course James Morrison owns the 160 
NW 1/4 of Sec 11 "the home place".
Merle thinks that the W & J of 1874 map are Wm and James our relatives.
Lyman think that it stands for William and Jennie.  This is backed
up by the fact that Jennie is listed as the owner of the real estate in
the 1870 census.
