Old Ohio Map

Here's a map I copied from a blog called Cartophilia: Maps and Map Memorabilia by Cartophiliac showing the original land grants that made up the state. The map was part of a discussion about a new book called How the States got their Shape by Mark Stein which I currently have on reserve at the library. Hope to have it by next weekend to share with Dad!

WOW---the blog (or posters Catherine and Serena) have been busy! I enjoyed the posts! Re: the map of OH, I thought it interesting that our area of origin was marked VA military zone since the Hiestands settled in Highland County from VA. Also Gist Settlement was settled by slaves from VA, as you know already.
