Following your instructions to Megan, I took a look at Rosemarket on the
1890 map. I'm wondering if someone can explain the village or farm called
'Paradise' on the map (just east of the town of Rosemarket).
Does anyone know its history? I ask because my ancestor went to Utah in the
1850's, and the town he, his family, and others founded was called Paradise.
I'd heard he named it that, but never had any proof. Maybe this could be a
Are there entries or names for the numbered properties listed on the 1890
map? I am, for example, looking for Culver's Well, in or near Rosemarket.
Thanks for any help.

If you go to
click on 'View interactive mapping', you can find Stephen's Ford by entering
'stephensford farm' in the search box. You can then select maps from 1890.
Looking at the 1851 census entry at some of the neighbouring properties of
Bush, Tangiers jumps out. I've just had a look on the 1890 map by
putting Tangiers in the search box, and can see some of the other properties
such as Glanafon which were listed near Ivy Bush in 1851, but could not find
Bush itself and its not coming up on the modern map either.
This hopefully shows that Tangiers and Glanafon,who were listed next to Ivy
in 1851 are quite near to Stephen's Ford.
Hope this helps a bit.
