Adding Index 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.

We originally found mention of Index in both the FIPS-55 and the GNIS. For more information, see the FIPS and GNIS Codes sections on our Miscellaneous Page.

In addition, we also found mention of Index elsewhere: The earliest map where we found it was on a Rand McNally Map of Kentucky (1911).

For more details about the above, see References and Mentions for Index on our Genealogy Page.

Communities Also Named Index ...

Using our Gazetteer, we have found that there are 10 communities that are also named Index - they are located in Alabama, Arkansas (2), Michigan, Missouri, New York, North Carolina, Virginia, Washington and West Virginia.

Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Kentucky's counties, including Morgan, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Index - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<4>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Index) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Index. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 37.8981, Longitude: -83.2849       In this case, the coordinates for Index have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
