So far, we have found very little information about Ruby. The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<1>
We've added Ruby to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. If you can help us with Ruby, please Contact Us.
Various Identification Codes ...
GNIS Codes ...
The U.S. Board on Geographic Names (BGN) was created to address the problems caused by spelling and naming variations. The BGN will usually recognize an existing name or, when necessary, chose a new name for a geographic feature (such as a mountain, lake, river, stream, city, town, village, dam, bridge, etc).
The BGN names are kept in a database called the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS) and it is the official Federal repository. The GNIS is operated and maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).
A unique and permanent number has been assigned for each name in the GNIS database. These names and identifiers are definitive and it is intended that they are to be used by all departments of the Federal Government:
GNIS ID for Ruby: 157390
GNIS ID for Walker County: 161589
GNIS ID for Alabama: 1779775
