For Mavis Moore,

Lyon County, Minnesota is located in the southwestern corner of that state.
Get a map that shows the state and look for Sioux Falls, SD just over the
state line with South Dakota. Find Minnesota State Route 23 that goes
north-northwest to Marshall, the Lyon County Seat. The Southwest State
University is located in Marshall, Lyon County, MS. Tracy, Lyon County,
Minnesota is down a bit, 14 miles south on US 59, then east a hop and a skip
to Tracy on US 14. Good luck.
