Suppose the Millers are such a family. Hank Miller has found three quarter-sections along a substantial stream that he wants his family to own. He files a claim for the quarter-section to the north (SE 1/4, S.12, T2S, R1W). His wife, Mable, files a claim for the section just south of her husband's (NE 1/4, S.13, T2S, R1W). The Millers' 17-year-old son swears he is "over 21" and files for the section just east of his mother's (NW 1/4, S.18, T2S, R1E). Locate the Miller family's land, beginning with Hank's claim. When you have correctly located his land, proceed to locate the claims of Mable and her son.
*If you care to suggest a name for the Millers' unnamed son, feel free to do so in class.
