Do you know of Wicks Well ???

This page is an orphan - a placeholder until we can discover more about Wicks Well. When we encounter a name that is new to us, we add it to our Gazetteer with the hope that we'll discover more information in the future. Such is the case with Wicks Well.

Unfortunately, we didn't note our source when we found mention of Wicks Well, so we are uncertain whether Wicks Well is a community, a post office or a post office located in a community and having the same name. While we don't have its location, we believe that Wicks Well would be found somewhere in Hopkins County, Kentucky.

This entry could have originated in error. It might be that a source had a misprint, was simply wrong or we made a transcription error while referencing it. Many of the documents we reference are from the 1800s and the early 1900s, with some easier to read than others.

Part of the difficulty in identifying whether a name is a post office or a community lies with how Post Offices were named. We've prepared an article with our understanding of how post offices were named: Naming of Post Offices.
