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 north past Reynolds and then turned east". While Reynolds could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Reynolds 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 (or areas) where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. For example, you might hear somebody say that they are going over to Mile's to see Pete ... Mile's is just a gas station and a couple of homes at the crossroads. While it might not be on the map, everybody in the area knows it by that name.

Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, several families clustered in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc. The community might still exist, is now gone or only existed for just a short period of time.

Also keep in mind that Reynolds 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 - we're working to straighten it all out.

Just in case there has been confusion between counties, we found that there are 2 Alabama communities also named Reynolds. While this community is located in Dallas County, the others are located in the following counties: Bullock and Lawrence. For more information, see our Tidbits & Trivia Page for Reynolds.

<2>It's a common practice for mapmakers to remove the apostrophe from possessive names. So Reynolds may originally have been Reynold's.. For more information, please visit our Genealogy Helper Page for Reynolds.
