Are my eyes bad or is that not Lohrville, Iowa, which still exist today. - Joe Hare
Thank you Joe Hare - I should ought to have used both glasses and a magnifying glass to start with. You are absolutely right. There is most certainly a Lohrville, Iowa, still located in Calhoun County, Iowa, though it's not quite half the population it would have been when the check was drawn on the bank. The latest estimate is around 350 residents, according to the Wikipedia article on the town. - EW
