The following information from Wikipedia tells of the little Nevada town where Florence Gordon was born. It is no longer listed on present day maps. It is listed on maps from the 1880s.
Toano was created by the Central Pacific Railroad in 1868. The town was the western terminus of the Salt Lake Division of the railroad. Toano had a population of 117, including hotels and stores. Between 1873 and 1874, the town was plagued by two fires that destroyed several buildings and a hotel. The start of the end of the town was in 1884 when the Oregon Short Line Railroad was completed and all traffic from Idaho was eliminated. The town quickly lost its importance. Toano officially became a ghost town in 1906. No early buildings still stand.
