In my collection of various trash i found a map i have from 1887 which shows wyoming thru exeter twp on the west side and jenkins twp thru dureya on the east side including the coxton yds, collierys, several breakers slopes shafts drifts, etc. it also shows underground mine workings, rail lines, property owners/ lessees, etc. as well as existing streets and landmarks. Let me know what you are looking for specifically i can check it out for you.
