Greene County Atlas

Early Landowners of Pennsylvania: Atlas of Township Warrantee Maps of Greene County

This Greene County atlas contains all of the Township Warrantee Maps which are on file at the Pennsylvania Archives in Harrisburg, thus pinpointing the location of the earliest landowners. Each Township Warrantee Map was painstakingly platted by draftsmen from the original warrants, surveys, and patents. The maps show precise outlines of each original tract and all surrounding tracts in the township, giving the names of the warrantee and patentee; dates of the warrant, survey, and patent; and the patent and survey books and page of the recorded patent. This Greene County atlas contains one chapter for each township, the plats being warranted as early as 1769 and as late as the 1920s.

Each chapter begins with the Township Warrantee Map reduced to 8 X 11" with an atlas coordinate grid superimposed on the map and is followed by all of the information found on the map (sample page from the Washington Co. volume). Numerous reference notes from Greene County history references have been added, and an everyname index is included.

The large images (averaging about 3' X 4') without coordinates are contained on a companion CD which can be purchased separately or in combination with the atlas. The CD contains only the map images, not the text of the book.

Here is a small section of the Whiteley Township Warrantee Map.
