Exactly where was this hospital?

I'm trying to figure out where the Confederates established their hospital for the casualties of Oct. 22nd, probably Thompson's and Jackman's men who fell fighting the 2nd KSM and regiments from the brigades of Jennison and Moonlight.

According to the chief surgeon for Price's army: "Established a hospital at the house of a widow lady adjoining the field of battle in which some 27 of our own and 7 Yankee wounded were brought. I was occupied until long after dark in getting them attended to."

This surgeon was on Price's staff so he probably established the hospital near Price's headquarters south of Brush Creek.
