I am very interested in not only people and dates but where the people lived. Maps can show you locations of counties, townships, sections, and locations of farms and of these I have quite a few. One of my more interesting maps though has to do with John Meader (my gggggggg-grandfather) who died in New Hampshire in 1736. He had two sons Joseph and Nicholas plus two daughters. I was able to locate his will which basically contained what you would expect to find in a will. What was unique though was that there was also a map showing how the farm was to be divided up between the two sons.
