other instrument to be made a matter of record is executed
there shall be typed or printed to the side or below all
signatures the names of the parties signing such instruments
including the witnesses thereto, if any, and the names of the
parties or officers taking the acknowledgments. The absence or

tax bills are to be sent shall be endorsed on the instrument.
The absence or neglect of any one to comply with this provision
shall not invalidate the instrument.
    Whenever any deed or instrument of conveyance is executed
and is to be made a matter of record wherein a metes and bounds

shall contain the section, township and range with an
identifiable point of beginning. Subsequent courses shall
contain approximate linear distance and direction values,

lines of previously recorded conveyances, the instant
description shall contain sufficient information so that it may
be located without reference to matters outside the instant
description.
    The neglect to comply with the provisions of this Section
shall not invalidate the instrument.
