Mappy Monday: Pennsylvania


Years ago I came across a Genealogical Map of the Counties. I do not recall where I acquired it or from whom. Basically it traces the counties of Pennsylvania in regards to when they were formed.

Lancaster County, for example, was formed 10 May 1729. Philadelphia County was actually the third county organized. Chester County was the second. The first county to officially be organized was Bucks County. Now that all said, the latter three counties were all organized in 1862. They are considered as the three original counties.
