Surname Saturday: Baumgartner Plat Maps 1856

I found the Baumgartner name while I was researching in the Franklin County, Ohio 1872 Historical  Atlas and Plat Maps 1842, 1856, 1883 reference book. Though this is a very collateral line (husband of sister-in-law of grand uncle of my dad), I have a habit of snagging the research while I'm in the source just in case I was meant to find the record for someone else.

These maps are from the 1856 Plat Map section specifically for Jackson Township.

Just under the printed word 'Jackson' you'll find a collection of Baumgartner properties. This close up image highlights the ones I found.

Thus far, I found a Jno, Levi, and H Baumgartner properties. The land sizes very from about 60 to around 200 acres. Large enough to be seen on the map without too much difficulty. That's pretty impressive.

Hopefully a Baumgartner relative will stumble across this research and find it beneficial. If it was redundant work, I'm okay with that. Looking at the maps was fun and I have more to share.
