Pursuant to Section 315 of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976, as amended (43 U.S.C. 1745), and the regulations contained in 43 CFR Part 1864, a recordable disclaimer, if issued, will confirm that the United States has no valid interest. The recordable Disclaimer of Interest application is for the surface and subsurface estate in the following described land:

Black Hills Meridian

T. 2 N., R. 6 E.,

Sec. 7, SE1/4SE1/4.

The parcel located within the above described land contains 6.50 acres in Pennington County.

The SE1/4SE1/4 of sec. 7 is divided by a county boundary line which separates Meade County and Pennington County. The line runs east to west along the north side of the southern section line. There are approximately 6.50 acres between the county boundary and the south section line. The Federal surface and subsurface estate to be disclaimed lies within the Black Hills National Forest.

Public Sale Patent No. 3863 dated June 1, 1898, conveyed T. 2 N., R. 6 E., Black Hills Meridian sec. 7, SE1/4SE1/4, containing 40 acres, out of Federal ownership. Subsequent land transactions occurred between 1898 and October 16, 1900, when the same legal description was deeded back to the United States through Warranty Deed (WD) from Price & Baker Company. The legal description was correct, but erroneously cited only Meade County. The document was only recorded in Meade County.

Pennington County's records, therefore, showed a tax delinquency, so the County sold the 6.50 acres in a tax sale on June 25, 1943, to L.A. Eberlein, the applicants' predecessor in interest. The cloud on the applicants' title was the initial error of not recording the document conveying ownership back to the United States in Pennington County, and Pennington County's subsequent error of selling the 6.50 acres for non-payment of taxes.

All persons who wish to present comments, suggestions, or objections in connection with the proposed disclaimer may do so by writing to the undersigned authorized officer at the above address. Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.
