I did have the lats positive. I will try negative longs now. Thanks a million for all of your help!

oops!  Yep, I had it backwards...multitasking and copy/pasting error.  PA is in the NW quadrant.  Thanks for catching that Antonio!

This is probably a very stupid question but here it goes...How do you plot true latitude and longitude?

You can't, 'cause Lat/Long are spheric coordinates: we live on a rounded planet, but paper and screen are flat, sir.
That's why you should project your LL data in a cartesian fashion, e.g. UTM.
