in Mather & Brockett's Geographical History of the State of New York
(1848). Mather and Brockett treated the upstate counties a bit
unevenly in terms of coverage, and Orleans County was one of the least
favored. While the coverage extends across four pages of the
volume, regrettably there are only a scant three pages of material.
We do also include the section of Mather and Brockett relating to the
land grants and patents of New York State as a supplement, however.
