Syllabus

Report of commissioners appointed to ascertain, retrace, remark, and reestablish the real, certain and true boundary line between the States of Tennessee and Virginia from White Top Mountain to Cumberland Gap confirmed.

A compact having been entered into by the States of Tennessee and Virginia expressed in concurrent laws of said states which received the consent of Congress, this Court modifies the line delineated in the report of the commissioners as to so much thereof as is affected thereby, and that portion of the line is determined, fixed and established in accordance with such compact.

The commissioners having ascertained and recommended the straight line from the end of the "diamond-marked" compact line of 1801-1803 to the corner of the States of North Carolina and Tennessee as the true boundary line between the States of Virginia and Tennessee between those two points, this Court approves and adopts such recommendation.

The proceedings appear in the decree of the Court.
