(case involves ownership over .849-acre tract; trial court judgment affirmed that defendant obtained title to tract via old fence line located 164 east of boundary as described in plaintiff's deed because fence line established a boundary by acquiescence between the parties; origin of mistaken boundary dated to error in 1845 plat due to an offset in lines and corners of survey to account for curvature of earth; preponderance of evidence present that parties and predecessors had occupied respective tracts based on mistaken belief that marker marked common corner).
