Orangeburgh Township Plats along Lower Caw Caw Swamp
This posting shows some additional early Orangeburgh Township plats on topographic maps. This group of plats were located along the lower part of Caw Caw Swamp and the North Fork of the Edisto River as indicated on this drawing:
All but the last two of these plats were surveyed by George Haig. Most were laid out in the latter part of September 1735. For those who notice such detail, you will see that this group of plats was placed ever so slightly southeast of where it should join those plats in my earlier posting. This was done to make some of the water features shown on plat 16 line up better with the topographic map. This plat, surveyed for William Thomson in 1770, shows the branch that is now Sunnyside Canal. Remember, none of these property lines are guaranteed to be precisely accurate, just reasonably close!
