Warren County Township Formation Maps by Tom Foley
Prior to 1803, what is now Warren County was in Deerfield Township of Hamilton County. This series of handy maps drawn by Tom Foley is available on the Warren County Genealogical Society Website at http://www.co.warren.oh.us/genealogy/twp_map.htm
The maps show both the changes in the county boundaries and the transition from 4 townships in 1803 to the 11 townships that we have today.
