inline map here is a JPEG file approximately 250K in
size. If you click on the second link, you will load a
the same map but at much greater resolution. This second
map is bigger when printed out and has also been only
slightly compressed from the original TIFF file.
probably a good idea to use your browser's "Download Link
to Disk" command on this second link as the file is
slightly over 1MB in size.
detail comes from the Dennis Griffith map of Maryland in
the Library of Congress Map Collection. it's an amazing
and beautiful piece of workmanship for its day.
I have added two asterisks on the web map
which show Senepuxon [etc] Inlet and
Sinepuxent Neck. Just north of the Inlet is South
Point and Genezar. The islands shown by the inlet
don't exist anymore (perhaps there are shoals there)
and neither does the Inlet. Note how Fenwick Island
extends much further south than it does now. The more
northern asterisk is about the location of the present
Fassitt House and of Mayfields.
