Any person who owns or is interested in a tract of land within this state, any corner or line of which has become lost or uncertain, or is in danger of becoming lost or uncertain by the removal, destruction, defacement, or perishing condition of any corner, witness or line tree, monument, or other cause, may call on the county engineer of the county in which the land lies to make a survey of such land, and may cause to be planted at any corner, or at proper places in any line thereof, a stone or post, noting particularly the situation and condition of the original corner trees or monuments called for in the original survey, if found, and of all other trees or monuments which it may be important or advisable to note, and of all the places of notoriety over or by which the lines of such survey pass.
If it is a single tract divided by a county line, such person may call on the engineer of any county in which a part of such tract lies. The engineer shall make out a plat and certificate of such survey, under his hand, noting the names of the chainmen, markers, and other assistants in such survey, and of all other persons present at the planting of any stone or post. The engineer shall also note the variation of the compass from the original calls at the time of making such survey.
