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

Hi. I can help you with location conversions to lattitude and longitude and also spend some time helping on the DLC parcels...you have three spots identified for ONE location...my ancestry situation is sketchy. E mail me direct to my g mail e mail at Oregondave1 @ gmail dot com.
you will get lattitude and longitude from me for your requests and then you will be able to view on google maps or google earth to see if accessible today..and how much the river may or may not have moved, etc.... here is my cell 925.708.3764 Dave
Just copy and past what you want and resend to me as an e mail to my e mail oregondave1 at g mail dot com.. as my ancestry access is sketchy (for now).
