Pennsylvania Land Patent List for
South Strabane Twp.


This transcription was done by Jean Suplick Matuson of Plano, Texas in November 1998.
The source used were "diazo blue" maps obtained from the Pennsylvania Historical and 
Museum Collection, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania in 1991.  

These maps document transfers of land from the possession of the Commonwealth of 
Pennsylvania to individual citizens.  Refer to our Land Records page for background 
information on the process that was used.

Some transcription notes:  
I changed the date format from "month day, year" to "day month year".  Months were 
given on the map in the modern 3-letter abbreviations except for June and July.  I also 
spelled out the following abbreviations:

	As - acres
	Ps - perches
	War. - Warrant
	Pat. - Patented
	Sur. - Surveyed
	Virga. - Virginia
	Certifc. - Certificate

Finally, I alphabetized the plot owners by last name.
