This map is an original survey conducted by Laurence Voorman in New York in 1797, depicting a six square mile area in Hekimer County along the East Canada Creek. What sets this plat map apart is its documentation of Sir William Johnson's granting of land to his Native American children in the late 18th century, noting each child by a single Anglican name and the acreage of their plot. Notable landmarks, including trees and stumps, are also marked. The map was lithographed by Richard Pease in 1849 for The Documentary History of the State of New-York by E.B. O’Callaghan.
