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 Jones Bluff Dam and then turned east". While Jones Bluff Dam could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Jones Bluff Dam 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 Jones Bluff Dam 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 Jones Bluff Dam.

<2>It's a common practice for mapmakers to remove the apostrophe from possessive names. So Jones Bluff Dam may originally have been Jone's Bluff Dam. Sometimes the trailing 's' might be dropped altogether, in which case Jones Bluff Dam might be written as Jone Bluff Dam.
