Introduction ...

Below is our collection of tidbits, odds 'n ends for East End.

This page contains two sections:

How Far From East End to ...

We spend a lot of time looking through Gazetteers & Almanacs that were published in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Many of the Gazetteers include the distance from a community such as East End to various places of note, such as the White House.

With a nod to our favorite Gazetteers, the straight-line distance<1> beginning in East End to:

  • Tuscaloosa [Map], which is the Seat of Tuscaloosa County, lies just to the Northeast.
  • Montgomery [Map], which is the State Capital of Alabama, lies 95 miles [152.9 km] to the Southeast (SE). If you could drive a straight line from East End to Montgomery, with an average speed<2>of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, it would take less than two hours to make the trip. A comfortable walk of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour would take 6 days. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take three full days.
  • The White House (Washington, DC [Map]) is 705 miles [1,134.6 km] to the Northeast (NE). Driving would take just about two full days, a buggy would take 28 days and walking would take 40 days.
  • The shortest distance<3> to Jerusalem (specifically the Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock [Map]) is 6,598 miles [10,618.5 km] and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<4>
  • The distance to the Great Mosque of Mecca (specifically the Ka'bah - or Kaaba [Map]) is 7,307 miles [11,759.5 km] and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<5>
  • The distance to Saint Peter's Basilica (The Vatican [Map]) is 5,184 miles [8,342.8 km] and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<6>

Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance from East End. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- East End) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in East End. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 33.2046, Longitude: -87.5542     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for East End have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).

<2>While we have tried to pick reasonable speeds, the rate of travel is very theoretical - obstacles like fences, hills, lakes, river crossings and rest stops have been ignored. When we say 'Days' of travel, we're assuming 8 hours of travel per day.

- Return to Citation

<3>The shortest line can be visualized by stretching a string on a Globe from Point A to Point B - this is known as a Great Circle Route. Where you might expect the shortest route from East End to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.

<4>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to Jerusalem is 314.109 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<5>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to Mecca is 309.745 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<6>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to the Vatican is 310.664 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<7>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer as a placeholder. As we find more information about that community, it will be added to our Gazetteer.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. The community might still exist or it might have existed for just a short period of time. Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, families in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc.

Also keep in mind that the community could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere. Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community.
