    Almost 200 years have gone by, but If you can find the Likely Route.
    And if Curves have been Cut off, Pre-Black Top Days.
    there may be one or more still out there in Fields, or wooded areas
    just a few feet off the Present road.



    Jeffersonian Republican.
    (Stroudsburg, Pa.), 23 Oct. 1845.

    Should be easy enough to find the old route, if there are old aerial photos of the area like we have for PA.

    yep !
    also any old County AtlaS Like "BEERS" Will show you the Most Direct (Shortest) Route.
    Which would most likely have been taken.

    Most Direct Route is Probably the one on the .

    if a major turn were Needed,

    https://mapmaker.rutgers.edu/MAPS.ht...hor-1872-49575

    Also, there may be Dept. of Transportation Maps of Each Township,
    from the teens and 1940's Like PA Has, Which Would get you Even Closer.
