Stops on Longmont's Baby Railroad (1882)

If you remember the story from a year and a half ago about the narrow-gauge railroad between Longmont and Canfield (and eventually to Denver) in the 1880's, here's a list of stops on the route, courtesy of a short piece in an 1882 Longmont Ledger newspaper:
There are ten stops on the narrow gauge railroad -- Longmont, Ward, Canfield, Northrup, Mitchell, Sharrattville, Lakeside, Hallock Junction, Argo, and Denver.
That is not the same Ward that we know today high up in the hills, which officially got its name a decade later in 1894.

I'll have to see if any of these mostly-unknown places show up on any maps. And if you've got any information, feel free to leave a comment.
