While we are confident that Alcona was located in Rooks County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Alcona to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Alcona - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Alcona, please Contact Us.

Adding Alcona to Our Gazetteer ...
As we work on our Gazetteer, we occasionally find mention of a community that is new to us. When we find such a community, we add it to our Gazetteer with the hope of adding more information in the future.
That's the case with Alcona: The earliest book where we found it mentioned was in the Business Atlas and Shippers' Guide (1895).
We also found Alcona on a Rand McNally Map of Kansas (1911).
