A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Welcome to Alston ...
Although we found mention of Alston during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Alston was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than a locale or some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it was a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
While we are confident that Alston was located in Franklin County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Alston to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Alston - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Alston, please Contact Us.

That's the case with Alston: The earliest map where we found it was on a William Bradley Map (1889).
We also found Alston mentioned in the book Business Atlas and Shippers' Guide (1895).
