Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Browns Valley, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.

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