Welcome to Avon ...

Although we found mention of Avon during our research, we have little information about it.<1> We believe that Avon had a post office at one time. We have done a cursory search and haven't been able to find any evidence that the community still exists.

While we are confident that Avon was located in Coffey County, we don't know its actual location within the county.

We've added Avon to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Avon - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Avon, please Contact Us.




Time Zone: The area where we believe that Avon might be (or was) located is in the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT) and observes daylight saving time

Footnotes ...

<1>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer. For example, we might find a sentence like "He went south past Avon and then turned east". While Avon could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Avon as a placeholder with the hope that we'll be able to add more information in the future.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. The community might still exist or it might have existed for just a short period of time. Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, families in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc.

Also keep in mind that Avon could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong county. Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community.
