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

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