To Bend or Not to Bend

The deed commences 400 feet east of the sixteenth corner. Thence south 510, thence east 680, thence north 510, thence west 680 to POB. There is no record survey. Found #5 rebar at the four corners that are uncalled for but have been accepted. No one knows where they came from. Used deed distances to locate them and of course they vary from the record some. The two marks that are supposed to be on section line are not on line between the sixteenth corner and the quarter corner. There is no reason to believe the marks are not original other than there is no survey record. Do you bend through the found marks or set new ones? Do you stake the deed and GIS distances and bearings or hold found?
