We largely built the following list with information that came from an Atlas published by Rand McNally in 1895. The Atlas had details such as the population of the community (which appears to have come from the 1890 Census) and whether there was a post office and/or railroad service available. Over time, we will continue to add communities that we find during on-going research.
If it applies, we indicate whether a community no longer exists and is now historic.<1>
While we didn't find Mohave Crossing in the Atlas, the following communities of the 1890's would have been found near the current location of Mohave Crossing.
Mineral Park [Mohave County] - Historic
While Mineral Park was mentioned in the 1895 Rand McNally Atlas, it no longer exists
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 Mohave Crossing, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Mohave Crossing) to Point B.
Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Mohave Crossing. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 35.3333, Longitude: -114.5889 In this case, the coordinates for Mohave Crossing have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy of those coordinates. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or maybe historic and gone without an obvious trace.
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.
