Scene from a survey

How many times has this happened to us- we do intensive research on a piece of property and then unexpectedly meet one of the people that owned the land we are learning about? Unexpectedly find them in a family plot on or near the property we are surveying. There is something bitter-sweet about this. We find the deeds they had drawn up, that they had signed and then we find them, in repose on the family plott sometimes after the remainder of the family has left the land behind for a hundred years or more.
