      Jake et al,

      Thanks for confirming that the M House has always been on the south
      side of the N Road. I spent a couple of hours trying to find the
      questionable map(s) but only found one with it on the north
      side: "Lee's Lts" vol. 2, pg. 175. The cite for it shows 2 B&L pg.
      568 but it looks like B&L is correct.

      Should I find more I will post them.

      Larry F.

      (Subsequent printings moved the label to the right structure.)
