Most of Clark County lies in
Between the Miami Rivers Survey (MRS). The northeastern and
parts lie in the Virginia Military Survey. For the northeastern part,
is everything east of the Ludlow line, and for the southeastern part it
everything south of the Little Miami River. In the Miami Rivers Survey
townships and ranges are reversed from the normal rectangular survey in
rest of the state, and in the United States as established by the
of the first Seven Ranges in eastern Ohio. The Miami Rivers Survey was
as a continuation of the Symmes Survey (near Cincinnati and Hamilton
Ohio) begun about 1787 or 1788.
In the 1870 atlas, the township and range numbers are shown in Roman numerals at the edges of the map. The section numbers are shown in the center of the section in Arabic numerals. Arabic numerals in the Virginia Military Survey area are the original survey (and usually patent) numbers. In both surveys roads are double lines; single lines represent township, range, and/or property lines in the MRS; dotted lines and thin solid lines represent property lines in the VMS with the survey line being the heavier solid line. The acreage of each property is also shown if there was enough room for it. A small dot indicates the location of a residence.

Some information about this map - The surveyed township, range and section always remained the legal description regardless of what county the land lay in at the time the deed was drawn. So although the deed may show the land was in Hamilton Co. in 1799, looking at this map shows you the land now lies in Greene Co. or Clark Co. This has been very useful any researcher in running down records of land purchased before Clark Co. was formed.
