No location was specified, but he also obtained rights for Brady Springs (near present day I-80?), Stratton Springs (Elko County?), Owen Springs (White Pine County?) and Saw Mill Springs.

There is also a McFarland Spring in Clark County (GNIS), this spring could also be associated with Ira MacFarland.
