I may be misunderstanding what "seat of a first-order administrative division" means, but River Cess, Liberia (2274288) is listed as the 1st seat of River Cess admin 1 division. However, I've found some info (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/River_Cess_County, http://www.citypopulation.de/Liberia.html) that the capital of River Cess County is actually a city called Cesstos City. But if I search the geonames database the closest I can find is a city called Cesstos Village.

Doing a little more digging I found this article (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/River_Cess) which states that River Cess is the capital.

Google Maps searching for Cesstos City brings up River Cess.

Does anyone know what's going on here?

I assume the city has two names for historic reasons. I have added "Cesstos City" as alternate name.

Best
