Dauterive v. United States
101 U.S. 700
1. Where a petition was filed under the eleventh section of an act entitled "An Act for the final adjustment of private land claims in the States of Florida, Louisiana, and Missouri," 12 Stat. 85, praying for the confirmation of title to a tract of land in Louisiana, and it appears that the grant, as the same is alleged in the petition, was not surveyed before the treaty of cession, and that it furnishes no means whereby its location or extent can be determined, held that the petition was properly dismissed.
2. United States v. D'Auterieve, 15 How. 14, in which the same grant was under consideration, cited and approved.
The facts are stated in the opinion of the Court.
