It is unlikely to appear on most modern maps, because most are 6 miles square and not easily described in latitude and longitude or as GPS coordinates. A township can be part of the official land description, and in the case of Wirt, is T[ownship]149N and R[ange] 25W. Property records may be under the description as township names can and do change! And yes, depending on how close is 'close'<G>, there is an Ojibway Indian reservation to the south and west of Wirt township. Mary Bakeman Park Genealogical Books
