GNIS Codes
The function of the U.S. Board on Geographic Names (BGN) is to establish uniform names for geographic features (eg- communities, mountains, lakes, rivers, streams, etc). The BGN was created to address the problems caused by spelling and naming variations. BGN–accepted names are kept in a database called the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS), which is operated and maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).

A unique and permanent identifier has been assigned for each feature in the GNIS database. These names and identifiers are definitive.

Fitts Ferry has been given the GNIS Feature ID of '118328'. Click here to see the GNIS Record for Fitts Ferry.

Footnotes ...



<1>It's a common practice for mapmakers to remove the apostrophe from possessive names. So Fitts Ferry may originally have been Fitt's Ferry. Sometimes the trailing 's' might be dropped altogether, in which case Fitts Ferry might be written as Fitt Ferry. For more information, please visit our Genealogy Helper Page for Fitts Ferry.
