Charles Marshburn: Why the change of Santo to Sano?

About: 1897 Map of Adair County from the collection of Gene Jessee

Charles Marshburn asks?
On the 1897 Map, it shows the community of Sano was spelled Santo. How came the change? - Charles Marshburn
Excellent question, Mr. Marshburn, and one worth 10 forgiveness points if anyone ever threatens to have you (or me, for that matter) recycled through the Adair Assimilation Academy. I do confess: I don't know. This is a higher level question for Dr. Watson, Dr. JIM, or Dr. Gene Jessee or one of the more elderly Sanovians. Hope one or all send usa plausible answer - right or wrong - either way with conviction. - ED
