Georeference RemarksTreated this as for "near Cincinnati". Because there are named neighborhoods and towns within uncertainty of Cincinnati, I treated this as a Case B scenario: (the center of the nearest named place is closer to the center of the named place than the extent of the named place itself). So georeferenced as for Named Place - Bounded area. Accepted georeference from GeoLocate for Cincinnati.
