The History of the State of New York, edited by A.C. Flick contained a
map, which is online at the UGRR in NYS website
(http://www.nyhistory.com/ugrr/map.htm).  There area other maps in
Seibert's The Underground Railroad, and in a book about the UGRR in
Western New York called "And Why Not Every Man?"
