    Re: Old New Jersey river map.

    I have a map from the same time period that shows the terrain, roads, and towns. One difference is that it refers to the "Flat Kill". It is a large map and my wife wonders why I stand in the hallway not moving as I search across the entire State. As a brook trout fan there would have been many places to fish in North and North-Central NJ, although getting there would be a problem.

    Re: Old New Jersey river map.

    I love this. There is a tidal creek southwest called Mooresfield creek(now Pennsauken creek) that flows through Moorestown, where I live. It was named for Moores Tavern which was in the area during colonial times. Ancocas creek just to the north is now Rancocas creek. There is a tiny little crrek around here which will remain unnamed that still has some brook trout in it.

    Re: Old New Jersey river map.

    The river we now know as the Musconetcong has had many spellings. The problem was that the native Americans did not have a written language, so early European settlers wrote down that word in their own languages (Scotch/German/English/Irish) and it got bastardized by that. It means a river flowing from two lakes which were under what is today Lake Hopatcong.
