A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Welcome to Aberdeen ...
Although we found mention of Aberdeen during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Aberdeen 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 Aberdeen was located in Emanuel County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Aberdeen to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Aberdeen - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Aberdeen, please Contact Us.
When the people of Aberdeen refer to themselves (known as a demonym), they frequently use Aberdonian<2>
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.
