Hi Karen & anyone else who is interested. I don't know if there
might be something here that would be of any help but there is a 1790
Rensselearwyck Lease map for Brunswick on the Team Padgett web page at URL

While researching the PADGETT family from Oxford, NY, Doug Baxter scanned
a copy of the map into the above web page. I'm not familiar with all
these place but thought it might be of some help.

See web page (genealogy) for PADGETT & related families
