Surveys Along Deep Red Run and Fraziers Creek, Greer Co TX

An undated map, #24528 at the Texas GLO, the original can be downloaded here.
Based on the watercourses and matching names and grant numbers with the Survey map 4962 (exact matches for the area between Fraziers Creek and Bitter Creek on this map), this is land west of Altus, in T2N R21W and T2N R22W, and the northern parts of T1N 21W and T1N 22W.
The Deep Red Run here is today's Turkey Creek; Frazier's River is today's Salt Fork of the Red River; Horse Creek is today called Horse Branch; Bitter Creek has retained its name.

Names listed (reading west to east):
These are matches to the names, lot and grant numbers shown on Survey map 4962, sometimes revealing what initials stand for, etc.
More of these are missing grant numbers which suggests this map may be before the #4962, made 18 Dec 1883.
Many of these surnames are in later Jackson County. Names shown here with stars have a surname match in the later BLM grants in this area, they may be family matches, but no guarantee. If you know this to be true of any of these starred names, please let me know!
