    Kingston, C.W.
    The H. F. Walling Company of New York City (Henry Francis Walling 1825-1888) published maps of counties in eastern Ontario in the early 1860s. They also published maps covering the area from Michigan through the NE states and into Quebec and Ontario. These maps were produced as commercial products and financed by selling subscriptions before the map was printed. As a result, not every county was surveyed.
