Adding Austin 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 Austin: The earliest book where we found it mentioned was in the Business Atlas and Shippers' Guide (1895).
We also found Austin on a Rand McNally Map of Kansas (1911).
For more details about the above, see References and Mentions for Austin on our Genealogy Page.
