Check the Ferderick or Washington County US Gen Web site - I think there was
a map there at one time with some old tracts in teh area you were talking
Another thing you can do - is that if you have an original plat drawing you
can try to re-construct it yourself by manually using a compass, ruler and
pencil then enter the data or just play with it on Deed Mapper.
You mighh also check with the Carroll County Historical Society and to see
if they can supply a copy of a tract rendering from their files.
