THANKS VERY MUCH (y muchas gracias tambien!) to all that kindly responded
with suggestions about where Rio Longo might be in Bolivia.  The most
plausible explanation (and according to Dr. Newton from the Field Museum
of Chicago) seems to be that the name is a misspelling of  "Rio Zongo in
La Paz province, 15* 43' S, 67* 41' W...  A handwritten German "L" and
"Z" can beeasily confused...".
