I bought a copy of Loring McMilllen's map when I was in Staten Island years ago. I have been using it in connection with my genealogical research in the POST FAMILY. I am descended from both Garrett POST, Jr. and his younger half brother, Peter POST,the homesites of both having been displayed on the map, beginning the long list of Dutch decendant families running along the northwest shorelline of what became Northfield and even later the village of Mariners Harbor. Members of almost every family listed there are in my bloodline. JH

Excellent! You used Loring McMillan's Map. I can finally see how the 'raid' ensued!
