I'm researching Carlson ancestors from (Sacred Heart Twp) Renville Co. MN to (Finley Twp) Steele Co. ND.
I know that Finley was known as Highland Twp. in 1900.
I am going back to 1880 before statehood. There are totally different counties in the territory at this time....probably large areas to cover what was to become ND, SD, etc.
Would appreciate any help in finding what county would cover the area that would later become Steele Co.
Anyone know where I could find online territorial maps?
Already checked ND GenWeb site, but they have no maps.
Would some kind soul, please, point me in the right direction?
Thanks in advance for any help.
