The Town of Luzerne is where Jonathan Brown, Moses Brown and Amos Baker owned land in the early 1800s.  In 1824 Jonathan Brown and his co-owners lost the land to Douw Fonda in a Sheriffs sale described on the documents page.  The land consisted of two parcels totaling about 400 acres within the Town of Luzerne, Warren County, on Lot 4, Allotment 23 of the Patent of Kayaderosseras. On this map the original map maker used an incorrect Roman Numeral to identify Allotment 23, that is, "XVIII" instead of "XXIII".  Confirmation of this error can be obtained by referring to Burr's 1829 Map shown below.

This 1858 map of Luzerne and Queensbury, showing individual's names, is a tracing done in 1941 by I. & A. W. Miller from a map prepared by J. Chace, Jr., and published by E. A. Balch & W.O. Shearer, 517 Minor St., Philadelphia in 1858. The numbers within circles are the Lot numbers of the various Patents and Patent Allotments. In the extreme lower left of this map, the name "J. S. Brown" is written across lots 4 & 5 of Allotment 23 of the Patent of Kayaderosseras and a small dot is placed on Lot 5, ostensibly indicating the location of a house belonging to "J. S. Brown."  This location is N43 13.9683' W073 46.2267' (WGS84 Datum).  It is not known if this was Jonathan Brown's house, but it seems likely that it may have been him or his son, Jonathan, given that the 1824 Sheriff's Sale showed Jonathan owning land in this same general area.
