    • Jim, it may not have been created. The townships listed look to me to all be in the northeastern half of the county. Here’s what the PHMC says on the site:

      Warrantee maps have been produced ONLY for the specific townships in the counties listed in the links above. When the Land Office began fashioning these useful tools, there was no “master plan” governing which townships were mapped and which were not. Initially, maps were created for counties in which there was a great interest in the original warrantees and patentees, such as Lancaster and Dauphin. The northern tier counties were also mapped because they were deemed to be easier to fabricate, having primarily rectangular tracts of similar sizes. Other township maps were created because their particular county or region was a favorite of a specific Land Office worker. The map project ended in the mid-1990s, with no new warrantee township maps presently being produced by the State Archives.

      So, if it’s not listed, it most likely was never created. Sorry.

  2. Excellent tip, Kris. I blogged about it for my own patentee.
