Footnotes ...

<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 south past Blacks Bluff and then turned west". While Blacks Bluff could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Blacks Bluff 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 Blacks Bluff 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 county. 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.

Since confusion between counties is common, we searched and weren't able to find another Alabama community named Blacks Bluff.

<2>It's a common practice for mapmakers to remove the apostrophe from possessive names. So Blacks Bluff may originally have been Black's Bluff. Sometimes the trailing 's' might be dropped altogether, in which case Blacks Bluff might be written as Black Bluff. For more information, please visit our Genealogy Helper Page for Blacks Bluff.
