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 Crows Camp, 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 Crows Camp may originally have been Crow's Camp. Sometimes the trailing 's' might be dropped altogether, in which case Crows Camp might be written as Crow Camp. For more information, please visit our Genealogy Helper Page for Crows Camp.
