Joe: I believe Van Aken Road used to run above Mill Rift, Pa, parallel to what was then Turnout Road, now Bluestone Blvd, to the south. It joined Turnout Road near the Padgett Farm in 1880. Today the Padgett farm is owned by Plotnick, formerly Oberwager and Plotnick sold some of it to the State for the Delaware Forest Hunting/Fishing land. This is in Westfall Township. The old road is now a wood road and is on State and Plotnick land. A map called the Beers Map of 1870 showed the road and the Padgett farm, may also have shown your ancestor if he was a land owner at the time. The map is in the Deed Room of the Pike County Clerk, in the Vault. You can ask to see it. Steve Padgett email@example.com.
