Notes on Concordance Between Deeds

Note that the "stone" mentioned in 1058/94 as the beginning of the first line is prominent in several other deeds of tracts in the area. In the modern day, this is the northernmost corner of the property of the St John's Lutheran Church. This is the same place referenced in 2036/553 at the beginning of the sixth line. It is also described in 1058/94 as "a stone set at the end of the first line of a conveyance {188/350, Carter to Earle}", end of the 8th line {Gruver to Doyle}.

The stone mentioned at the end of the line is on Oriental Street east of Arctic Avenue and east of the undeveloped wooded tract.


The stone mentioned in 1058/94 second line destination is described as also being the "end of the sixth line of a conveyance from James PB Veirs to George H Earle Jr for 226 acres of land".

1058/94 is a gold mine of references to nearby properties if not necessarily a good reference to other deed libers/folios.

Map References

The Goodman Tract boundaries are best seen in various plat maps, especially in the plats for the subdivision of the Wheaton Woods neighborhood. For example, a plat (3243) map showing parts of Aspen Hill Road, Harlan Street, Iris Place, and Kemper Street shows one bound of the Goodman Tract paralleling Iris Place on a roughly northwest-to-southeast line.

Another such Wheaton Woods plat (3003) map shows an eastern bound running nearly north-to-south, parallel to and west of Evanston Street, running as far south as 4 lots south of Glasgow Drive. See also another plat (2771) map showing the plat just south of this map, showing an eastern bound west of and parallel to Evanston of property of Louise E Goebel (liber 594 folio 271).
