After fighting at the battle of Long Island, James Stirling of Cornwall returned to Cornwall.  The family had lands in Mohawk mountain, just to the west of Cornwall.  These large scale TOPO maps date from 1889-1890, they show the outlying areas and roads of the time very well.  If you are a descendant of James Stirling and Hannah May, you should visit this beautiful area of Connecticut.  Make sure and enjoy some of the ancient covered bridges in the area.
