Township 16 South of Range 19 West, Ellis County, Kansas Township 16 South of Range 19 West, Ellis County, Kansas

My impression is that the real route of travel for emigrants hereafter will be from Fort Hays or Harker (most probably from Hays) directly across to some point a little west of Dodge, crossing Walnut Creek and branches of Pawnee Fork, where the country affords excellent grass, good running water, plenty of wood, good roads---wood, water, and grass at convenient intervals.
