A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Welcome to Amboy ...
Although we found mention of Amboy during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Amboy 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 Amboy was located in Jasper County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Amboy to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Amboy - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Amboy, please Contact Us.
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Amboy might be (or was) located is in the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT) and observes daylight saving time
