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 Animas City, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>If you're interested in how the shape of Colorado's counties, including La Plata, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<3>It's a common practice for mapmakers to remove the apostrophe from possessive names. So Animas City may originally have been Anima's City. Sometimes the trailing 's' might be dropped altogether, in which case Animas City might be written as Anima City. For more information, please visit our Genealogy Helper Page for Animas City.
