1874 Atlas of Wayne County

1874-wayneThe Rochester Public Library recently added theĀ 1874 Atlas of Wayne Co., NY to their collection of digitized books. This atlas published by D. G. Beers & Co. is in PDF format. I like the PDF format because you can make a PDF as large as you want to view all the detail. This atlas is one of those that shows where homes of people are located. Also the maps show schoolhouses, churches and cemeteries.

Within this atlas are some pages of illustrations. They aren’t illustrations of anything in Wayne County. Instead they are illustrations of places in Ohio. It appears that the publisher inserted the wrong illustrations.

This atlas is too early to find any of my relatives. They didn’t live in the County until the twentieth century. How about you? Do you have any relatives that lived in Wayne County in 1874?
