Maps Of Colonial Beaver County, Pennsylvania

This page of our website will be a "carrier" of the links to various maps that we find should be associated with various pages in our ancestor's history.

The maps may very well be available through other links on the site but this will be a gathering spot to make it easy when you quickly want to view a map of a certain area. We'll do our best to give you any history or information that may also be appropriate in the paragraph associated with each map link.

We have the maps in a couple different formats but due to the easily "resizing" abilities of Adobe Reader, we've added the maps to these links in PDF format. Remember that in order to view this format you will need a copy of Adobe Reader (or compatible program) loaded on your computer. If you don't have a default PDF viewer, you can download a FREE copy from Adobe's website, here.

We've mentioned in a different section of the website about a Historic Resource that you should consider if you're going to do any research into the towns, and townships of Colonial Beaver County. This website is called AncestorTracks.com and while there are a couple other links in our website to that resource, THIS LINK is one that has to do "specifically" with the Maps of Beaver County in colonial times. The links you see below are to maps that have been downloaded from AncestorTracks.com but it's more efficient and logical to let you browse to that site itself and look around.

Again, this is an excellent resource and gives a superb explanation of the process our ancestors had to go through to purchase and own land in Colonial Beaver County Pennsylvania. And they don't stop there...! Obviously, we're interested in Beaver County based on our ancestor's lives here, but AncesterTracks.com is a totally historic rendering of information about land ownership in Colonial Pennsylvania all the way back through the 16th Century. Take advantage of this historical site to learn more about Pennsylvania History in Colonial times.


Moon Township - (Center Township of Today) - Beaver County, PA - February 18, 1932

Certifying text at the bottom of this map indicates the date of "transcription" of the map and does state that each tract of land shown, has the appropriate acreages, dates of warrant and patents, as well as the date of the surveyor's work. Tract numbers and the appropriate information of those tracts, is said to have been "...constructed from and compared with the original drafts remaining on file in the Department of Internal Affairs of Pennsylvania." The previously mentioned term, "on file", would most certainly mean in the Capitol at Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The oldest date I could find on the map was a warrant dated September 25, 1784, of 385 acres to Alex R. Spier.
