The following map fragment is from the Library of Congress. They title the map "A trader's map of the Ohio country before 1753", and credit it to John Patten. This map shows a building at or near the mouth of Wills Creek (the present-day location of Cumberland, Maryland), which may be the Ohio Company Storehouse. Why it is illustrated like a church isn't known to me. The map also shows a trail from that building to Raystown (present-day Bedford, PA). The trail does not run along the valley of Wills Creek. No trails are shown heading west from the building at Wills Creek; i.e. the Turkey Foot Trail and Nemacolin's trail are not shown.
