<2>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been unable to verify its accuracy, but are confident that we have placed the marker within a few hundred feet of the actual location. Typical reasons for being unable to verify a location is that it might be either overgrown or on private property. A physical visit will probably be needed to verify the location.
