Accomack County Maps
Copyright 1998 by Jim Lokenbauer
These maps of Accomack County and the indices that accompany them were created by ghote Jim Lokenbauer. Jim has generously agreed to share them with ghotes and visitors to the ghotes website. As you will see as soon as you start to explore here, Jim has created an extremely valuable research tool for everyone interested in the history of the Eastern Shore and Eastern Shore families. Proximity has repeatedly been recognized as the key predictor of relationships, and here you have an informative and fascinating tool that will let you see how near or far individuals may have actually resided from one another.
Our sincere thanks go to Jim. We greatly appreciate all the hours that went into this labor. We also appreciate Jim's generous nature—from which we all benefit now!
Thanks also to our webmaster Jack Burn for getting these files onto the site in a way that is so useful. In the coming weeks, Jack will be working to creeate "hot spots" on the maps so that you can see "who lived where" just by clicking on a given map section ... so stay tuned.
Where Did Your Ancestors
Click on a map below to see its full screen version. The maps are laid off in numbered sections. The files that follow each map list the names of people who lived in each section between 1600 - 1800. Search the Master Index file for your ancestor and locate the section number(s) for that individual. Then locate the area on the map. Then use the Individual Patents and Owners files to see who the neighbors were!
