Did The Letters Get Shoved Together?

Seeing this image from an 1874 county atlas made me think of a possible transcription or indexing error that can be particularly frustrating. The owner of part of the northern part of this section of property is "B. Urton." It certain would be easy for the name to be indexed (particularly if OCR is being used) as "Burton."

Just a thought!
