Thank you for that location clarification. You're right, 40-N, 20-W is in the eastern side, not the western side. I obviously don't know what the heck I'm doing when it comes to old maps. I used the 1930 map that's posted on the Benton Co. website. It shows Lively in Union Township, not too far south of the Osage River. The township lines may have changed since 1860.
