This map is by no means exact but it should give you an idea of how the township was/is situated.

Montague
Kilmarnock:
A village on a Rideau Canal.
Nolans Corners:
Could have been Comries Corners in the Historical Atlas of Lanark County.
Numogate:
Shows in the Historical Atlas of Lanark County.
Rosedale:
Seems to have undergone a name change since the publishing of the Historical Atlas of Lanark County in which the name Roseville appears. In 1827 it may have been called the Rose settlement.
Smiths Falls:
Was land granted in 1784 to Major Thomas Smyth, a British officer and veteran of the American revolutionary war. He took possession in 1823. By 1827 it was known as Wardsville after Abel Russell Ward who purchased the land. A road was built from here to the Bytown (Ottawa) road by the surveyor for the Rideau Canal. A road to Perth was also made and another linking it to the road to Brockville. The first store was opened in 1828. The land was surveyed for a townsite in 1829.
