Map of Ohio drawn by Mary Munson in 1822 at the age of 13. The Ohio counties as they appeared after the creation of Union County in 1820 are shown. Although the northwestern counties of Allen, Crawford, Hancock, Hardin, Henry, Marion, Mercer, Paulding, Putnam, Sandusky, Seneca, Van Wert, Williams, and Wood were also created in 1820, they are not depicted on the map. The land in northwestern Ohio was acquired through the Treaty of Maumee Rapids, which was signed on September 29, 1817 and ratified by the United States Senate on January 4, 1819. Munson refers to the treaty in her notation "Count[r]y recently purchased of the Wyandott and other Tribes of Indians." The map measures 13" x 12.25" (33 x 30 cm).
