This is a real shot in the dark but comes close to fitting the description:
From A Directory of Towns, Villages, and Hamlets
Past and Present
of Macon County, Missouri
Compiled by Arthur Paul Moser
MACON COUNTY ....
" NARROWS TOWNSHIP. This is in the south tier of townships, and borders upon Randolph County. Among the old settlers of Morrow Township were Joseph D. Butler, Isaac Gooding, and Edwin Bastam, the tallest man in the county. (Height not given.)
The first mill in the township was located in the northeastern part and was built by Judge Frederick Rowland. It was operated by an inclined wheel and ground about 100 bushels of corn and wheat per day. It was erected in 1840, and was run until 1850, when it was changed to a carding machine.
Afterwards it was called Georgetown.
Judge Frederick Rowland sold goods in 1837, at Locust Grove, his residence. "
Bruce you know a whole lot more about the geography and unit movement in that part of Missouri than I ever will, but this is the closest thing I could find that even comes remotely to fitting the geographical needs, even though its 2 1/4 counties away.
