Jim - I don't know if this will help, but I recently came across a web site
on the Underground Railroad regarding operators and NY.  I really didn't
explore it much, but I think I located it off Cyndi's genealogy page.  There
may be maps, I'm not sure.  You may want to check it out if you can find it.
