Description: (NEW JERSEY.) [Parvin, Theodore Sutton?] Untitled manuscript map of Cumberland County, New Jersey and the surrounding area. Watercolor and ink on wove paper. 16 3/4x13 1/2 inches sheet size; light spotting and edge toning. Np, circa late 1830s
Notes: An attractive map of Cumberland County in southern New Jersey showing the properties of "D. Parvin" and "D. Harris," with numerous towns, creeks and rivers named. The Parvin property is identified as being on the southern bank of the Cohansey River in Fairfield Township. The Harris property is in adjoining Downe Township. These are the only two individual properties identified on the map, suggesting that the map was either compiled for or by a member of the Parvin or Harris family. This map was loosely inserted in an 1838 edition of Bradford''s Illustrated Atlas, inscribed on the title "Theodore Sutton Parvin, Burlington, Iowa, August 15/ [18]38", lending a source and probable author of the map.

Theodore Sutton Parvin was born in Cedarville, Cumberland County, N. J., on January 15, 1817; he died June 28, 1901. He graduated from Woodward College, Cincinnati in 1836 where he studied law; he became private secretary to Robert Lucas, the first governor of the Iowa Territory, and was the first librarian of that territory. Later he was librarian and professor in the Iowa State University; was a founder of the Iowa State Historical Society in 1857 and in 1844 was the founder of the Iowa Masonic Library, where he remained the librarian until his death.
