Help me ID current location of farms

Hello - I have been able to find land patents and surveys that show where my ancestors lived on the Boise River in the mid-1870s and mid-1880s. I would really like it if someone familiar with the current geography could help me find the two areas using Google Maps/Earth. If area is still accessible I would like to visit (I am in Washington State).

Here are the locations from glorecords.blm.gov:
Locn 1)
004N - 001W W½NE¼ 21 Ada
004N - 001W NW¼SE¼ 21 Ada
004N - 001W NE¼SW¼ 21 Ada;

Locn 2)
NENE 22/ 4-N 2-W No Boise ID Canyon
NWNW 23/ 4-N 2-W No Boise ID Canyon
5 14/ 4-N 2-W No Boise ID Canyon
Remarks: LOT 5 OF W HALF OF SW
---
8 15/ 4-N 2-W No Boise ID Canyon
Remarks: LOT 8 OF E HALF OF SE;

and Locn 3)

20 Nov 1875 90.9 acres
Sec Twp Range
NWNE 22/ 4-N 2-W No Boise ID Canyon
7 15/ 4-N 2-W No Boise ID Canyon
Remarks: LOT 7 OF W HALF OF SE
--------
30 Apr 1883 120 acres
S½NE 22/ 4-N 2-W No Boise ID Canyon
SWNW 23/ 4-N 2-W No Boise ID Canyon...

Note that the last two are shown in Canyon County, but I believe Canyon was actually Ada at the time of interest.

Survey maps on the BLM site show the properties in relation to the Boise River, and I have been able to get fairly close , but not exact present day locations. For example, I believe the latter two adjacent properties were just a little East of Middleton Road.

Thanks,

Nick
