Sure do! I grew up in Riceville. Riceville is divided by the Mitchell county (west) and Howard county (east). So Jenkins township is Mitchell county and Jamestown township is Howard county. Riceville sits in the lower part of both Jenkins and Jamestown township. A mile south of Riceville on the west side will be Douglas township (Mitchell Co.) and on the east side will be Afton township (Howard Co.).
So it's like this:
MITCHELL COUNTY/HOWARD COUNTY
Jenkins twp/Jamestown twp
Douglas twp/Afton twp
Let me know if you have anymore questions. I have some 1911 township maps I can email to you.
