What is now the hamlet of Berne is in the lower right where it says "Jacob Weid..."(Jacob Weidman)" The double line with many bends is the Foxenkill. The faint line like this ===== running east west near the bottom is the wagon road that is now Helderberg Trail. To the west of Jacob Weidman's Home Site is Weidman's Mills; a grist mill and a sawmill.
