Welcome to Tampa ...
Although we found mention of Tampa during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Tampa 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.
While we are confident that Tampa was located in Calhoun County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Tampa to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Tampa - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Tampa, please Contact Us.
