I am sorry to question your accuracy, but you are off with the actual location for the source of the Shenango river. According to the US Geological Survey the correct location (which is nearby but further southwest) is:


Sequence Latitude(DEC) Longitude(DEC) Latitude(DMS) Longitude(DMS) Map Name
41.5558871 -80.4281236 413321N 0802541W Hartstown

There are some unamed tributaries close to this which in my opinion could equally be considered the source, but the actual origin of the Shenango is found in South Shenango Township (Crawford County PA)on the plateau between Westford and Hartstown, just SW of the intersection of Westford and Linesville Roads.

The location you site is further downstream of the source.
