SLIG Report: Maps and Photos
In addition to the text material located on my Essex Co. families, there were a few maps and photos that served as being important.
The bottom map, although extremely difficult to read, shows Samuel Very's land. It is the tract just below the tract that the compass arrow is pointing at.
Attention again to the bottom map. The small shaded area near the lower center is Cedar Pond. The two larger tracts to the west belonged to Benjamin Very and Elizabeth Nurse. To the far left is the top of Suntaug Lake/Humphrey's Pond. The Twiss property bordered the pond.

The house at the bottom is the Mansfield house. Peter Twiss lived there for a time.
