Even not knowing how to read the full description, the text above I pulled from that above should be able to get you right where you need to be even with crappy coordinates.

If I am understanding this right (an I could be wrong this is still a hobby after all)....this is referring to public land surveying system (PLSS).
NE SECTION 33, T105N, R4W ABOUT 2.5 MILE 'NORTH OF LA CRESCENT
You are looking for a plot of land in the township. It will be in the northeast corner of section 33. It is the 105 plot north of the base line and the 4th plot west of the range line. Located 2.5 miles north of La Crescent.
I can say, we never use this information. For us it's too not relevent to finding the mark (and who has ready access to the charts for all these plots of land and township boundaries etc). As Hogrod said, your best best is the following line of info to find the mark....
