Nearest Communities to Franklin By- County ...

The purpose of this page is to identify those communities that are closest to Franklin, on a County-by-County basis. To explain further, let's use the example from the Genealogy Helper Page for Franklin:

We have great-grandparents who lived in a small community in the northwest corner of their home county. During their lives, most hospitals and doctors were in the next county to the west. Almost all of the nearby churches and cemeteries were in the county to the north.

When doing our research, we make it a practice to expand our search by looking in neighboring counties in addition to the county in which they lived:  their home county contained property and probate records; the county to the west contained birth and death records; the county to the north contained their burial records. If we hadn't checked the neighboring counties, we would have missed many valuable sources of information.

Keep in mind that when we give a distance, it's a 'straight-line' distance from Franklin.<1>

If you're researching your genealogy, we hope that the following information helps.

The following 6 counties adjoin and form the boundaries of Greenlee County: Apache, Cochise, Graham, Catron (NM), Grant (NM) & Hidalgo (NM).

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or 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- Franklin) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Franklin. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Franklin

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Franklin. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 32.6783, Longitude: -109.0789    
<2>Our data comes from many sources and some sources are more dependable than others. When we add communities to our Gazetteer, we try to verify that we have the correct location for the community. We mark a community as 'Unverified' when we aren't confident about our data and want to do further checking.

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 larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now.

Since our Gazetteer contains over 100,000 communities, verifying everything is going to take time. If you find an error or can help us to improve our accuracy, please let us know.
<3>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<4>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.
