(visited by Rodger Stamm and Michelle Stamm)

10-Jun-2000 -- On June 10, 2000, Rodger Stamm and his daughter Michelle attacked the confluence at 41N 83W, then continued on to visit 41N/84W. We had been planning this for quite a while and studied the maps thoroughly and even acquired a Garmin GPS unit for the adventure. It was a hot sunny day and we had no air conditioning in the car. We decided to alter our course and take a side trip to find something cool like, ice cream. After that we got back on track and continued driving through more beautiful Ohio farm country. We went right to the confluence and found it just north of a one lane bridge right smack in the middle of Riley Creek.

We noticed that this confluence was located within a five mile square section on the map labeled "Old Indian Boundary" A reservation for the Ottawa Indians was established here by the Treaty of the Rapids of the Miami of Lake Erie on September 29, 1817. In 1831 a new treaty, "....in order to obtain a more permanent and advantageous home for themselves and their posterity...", took away the reservation and moved the Indians to Kansas.
