Georeference RemarksNOTE: locality information is contradictory. However, georeferenced "2 miles W of Tonganoxie" which is just to the south of sec 06 T11S R21E. Consider it likely that the range was supposed to read "21" and not "12", especially since there is a large quarry in sections 6 and 7 of T11S R21E.
