Red Oak, Alabama
Although we found mention of Red Oak during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Red Oak was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it's a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists.
One piece of information that we would especially like to find is the location (ie- GPS coordinates) of Red Oak. If you can help us locate Red Oak, please Contact Us.

|<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 north past Red Oak and then turned east". While Red Oak could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Red Oak 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 Red Oak 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.
Just in case there has been confusion between counties, we found that there are two Alabama communities named Red Oak: This one is located in Monroe County and the other is located in Covington County. For more information, see our Tidbits & Trivia Page for Red Oak.
