Welcome to Turnagain-By-The-Sea ...

Although we found mention of Turnagain-By-The-Sea during our research, we really don't have any information about it.<1> Given the context of how Turnagain-By-The-Sea was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it's a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists.

We've added Turnagain-By-The-Sea to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Turnagain-By-The-Sea - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Turnagain-By-The-Sea, please Contact Us.

<1>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer. For example, we might find a sentence like "He went north past Turnagain-By-The-Sea and then turned west". While Turnagain-By-The-Sea could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Turnagain-By-The-Sea as a placeholder with the hope that we'll be able to add more information in the future.

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 Turnagain-By-The-Sea could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong . 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.
