This transcription of a 1855 land survey of Winona, Minnesota was completed on January 21, 1862 by Charles F. Schroth of Winona. Transcribed from a copy from the Surveyor - General Office of Dubuque, Iowa. The survey cover includes the title and text: Field Notes 107 NR 7 West 5th Mer. Winona Township, Minnesota. The original land survey was completed by Daniel Corbin in 1855 and is accessible through the GLO Historic Plat Map Retrieval System managed by the Minnesota Geospatial Commons Information Office. Comparison of the transcribed and original Corbin survey revealed that the transcribed survey omitted much of the detail contained in the original survey. The 1862 land survey transcription was donated to the Winona County Historical Society in 1936 by Julian and Alfred Schroth, sons of Charles Schroth.
