Welcome to Aberdeen ...

So far, we have found very little information about Aberdeen. The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<1>

We've added Aberdeen to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. If you can help us with Aberdeen, please Contact Us.


Aberdeen would have been located within present day Cross County.

The location of Aberdeen has been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (ie- the GNIS).<2>

When the people of Aberdeen referred to themselves (known as a demonym), they are believed to have used Aberdonian<3>

Several communities named Aberdeen share the same reason for their choice of Aberdeen. We're speculating that it might apply here: Named after the city in Scotland.

While the community is gone, the present day location for Aberdeen is 220 feet [67 m] above sea level.<4>.

Time Zone: The area where Aberdeen was located is in the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT) and observes daylight saving time

If Aberdeen still existed, it would have been in the (870) area code.

Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Aberdeen, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
<3>A demonym is the name for a resident of a community which is usually derived from (or is related to) the name of that community. In other words, it's how the residents of Aberdeen refer to themselves. It's important to note that there aren't any rules for taking a community's name and turning it into a demonym. A demonym is informal and while the majority of Aberdeen may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.
<4>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Aberdeen - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<5>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Aberdeen) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Aberdeen. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 35.3612, Longitude: -91.0048       In this case, the coordinates for Aberdeen have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
