Part of a
Map of the State of New York
DeWitt was for many years the Surveyor General of the State of New York.
He held this position during the formative years of the early republic
when New York was rapidly expanding into the Indian lands of the central
and western part of the state. This map shows the many divisions
of patents and land tracts of the early settlement period.
