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