Generally most folks think of government patents as quarter sections (160 acres). In Utah it wasn't always square, more likely not square. I'm just curious how it was done in other states.

Here is common example of a Master Title Plat where most of the land went private. Normal quarter section didn't rule.

Is this common in other PLSS states?
