I am not sure if this was mentioned before, and if it was, I apologize. The
website of the Pennsylvania Archives has 1816 vintage maps in PDF format
that you can download.
At first view, they look like maps showing only township boundaries and
major towns. However, if you blow them up to 200% scale or greater, you
will see that these maps have homestead locations, tributary names, and
other landmarks of interest. They have maps for every County in
Pennsylvania (at least those that existed in 1816), but the map index
appears to cover the entire state.
