Bucking the Variant and Rocking the Location

When coming across a "new" location for a person or an event, consider that the new place may not be so new after all.

The reference to Clark Sargent moving to Buckton, Illinois, in this 1881 history of Marlborough, New Hampshire, probably is a mangled reference to Rockton, Illinois, where Sargent is known to have settled.

That "different" place may not be so different after all.
