    OK...the county is in a state that borders Canada. That narrows it down a bit.

    I would have guessed Hiawatha, KS... but is not a county.

    Would this fictional character be found in the book of Mormon? If so, I think I got it as well.

    Here's another geography trivia question:

    If you start from center city Detroit, Michigan, and head directly due south, what is the first foreign country you come to?
