Hello,
Looking for documentation of when Berkshire Mass. and Canaan, Columbia County NY border was drawn. I believe that my ancestor Asa Douglas (1739-1812) has the line drawn through his property and am trying to doc. Also have DAR who has him as leaving the state of NY. I think state left him:)

Thanking in advance
Joan

Have you tried the Berkshire Atheneuem in Pittsfield, they have a genealogy dept there. I belong to the Berkshire Family History Assoc.they send pamplet every season to members and they usually have old maps of different towns. There is one of Richmond but is later 1876 and does not have your Assa Douglas mentioned. My point is I think they get the info at the library so perhaps they have the info you are looking for.
