The General Land Office (GLO) website is a slow in pulling up map images so be patient.  I have copies of the map images loaded here for a quick viewing.  Map copies and deed papers can be purchased from the GLO online or in person.  I have purchased several Peters Colony maps and other county maps and am extremely pleased with the quality of the image and paper. They are very helpful and friendly people. I would recommend you give them a visit if you are in Austin Texas, their offices is at 17th and Congress, Suite 130, the next building to the North of the Bob Bullock Museum.

Detailed Map descriptions and pricing can be found in the Historic Maps Section of the GLO Website
