Stanford v. Taylor
59 U.S. (18 How.) 409
Where an imperfect Spanish title to land in Missouri was confirmed by the commissioners but the claim required a survey to ascertain its limits and boundaries,
evidence cannot be received that the survey was erroneously made by showing possession by the confirmee of land in a different place than that where the survey placed his land.
The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.
