Apparently, several hundred miles across the state is "close enough." In a couple of cases, I found a township and city with the same name. Different counties, but not only the same municipality name, the town and city had the same street names where the landmark was located. I suspect the computerized placement got confused and placed the landmark in the city instead of the township.
I've seen that a lot with the National Register entries. It's like they just say "Eh, close enough," and poke the map where it's convenient.
