A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Welcome to Albany ...
Although we found mention of Albany during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Albany was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than a locale or some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it was a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
While we are confident that Albany was located in Oxford County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Albany to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Albany - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Albany, please Contact Us.

Adding Albany 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 Albany: The earliest book where we found it mentioned was in the Business Atlas and Shippers' Guide (1895).
We also found Albany on a Rand McNally Map of Maine (1897).
