This map of Wisconsin Territory shows county development as it stood just before the creation of Richland County in the southwestern portion of the state (1842). Above the Wisconsin River are large tracts of Indian lands including those of the Winnebagos, Menomonies, and New York Indians. Carver's Claim is located to the north of these Indian lands. Samuel Augustus Mitchell would take ownership of Tanner’s plates approximately five years later and publish it in the Universal Atlas.
