The map below indicates the school boudaries outlined in red.  The map comes from the 1880 Meacham Atlas (the boundaries lines added using the Paint program).  The lines follow the description as closely as possible, with some uncertainty around the boarder of Lot 31.  Over-all though, it provides a fairly clear defined boundary.
