Whitewater River.—This stream rises in the southern part of Marion county about 6 miles west of the village of Burns, flows south and unites with the Walnut river at a point about a mile south of the town of Augusta, Butler county. The stream has only one tributary of consequence—the West Whitewater—which has its source near the town of Walton in Harvey county, and unites with the Whitewater a little north of the village of Towanda, Butler county. The length of the stream is about 35 miles. During the '60s the late James R. Mead of Wichita had a ranch and trading house on the Whitewater, the town of Towanda now occupying the site. In 1868 the Nineteenth Kansas cavalry, while on the march to the Indian Territory, stopped at Mead's ranch for supplies on the evening of Nov. 11.
