A "T C" Land Claim


This is part of the 1890 paperwork in the BLM Casefile for Phillip Troutfetter's cash entry for land in Colorado.
In this section of the testimony, he is indicating when he has been away from the claim. He mentions going to Euslis, Kansas, which I think is actually Ulysses, Kansas. I'm working on that. What I'm confused about is the "T. C. claim" that is mentioned. Phillip mentions he has relinquished two other claims. Any thoughts on what a "T C claim" is?

I would suspect it was a "Tree Claim" or Timber Culture Act claim.

After a little more involved searching and a few other emails, that it was I am leaning towards.
