Nearest Communities to Rock Springs ...

We're sorry, but we haven't been able to prepare a County-by-County List for Rock Springs.

The problem is that although we found mention of Rock Springs during our research,<1> we don't have its physical location (ie- latitude and longitude). Once we can determine its location, we'll be able to prepare the By-County List for Rock Springs.

We have done a cursory search and haven't been able to find any evidence that Rock Springs still exists. If you can help, please contact us through our Feedback Page.

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 Rock Springs and then turned east". While Rock Springs could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Rock Springs 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 Miller Creek to see Pete ... Miller Creek 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 Rock Springs 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 4 Alabama communities also named Rock Springs. While this community is located in Etowah County, the others are located in the following counties: Blount, Choctaw, Clarke and Wilcox.
