Adding Victoria 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 Victoria 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 Victoria elsewhere: The earliest book where we found it mentioned was in the Business Atlas and Shippers' Guide (1895).

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

Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Missouri's counties, including Jefferson, 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>A demonym is the name for a resident of a community which is usually derived from (or is related to) the name of that community. In other words, it's how the residents of Victoria refer to themselves. It's important to note that there aren't any rules for taking a community's name and turning it into a demonym. A demonym is informal and while the majority of Victoria may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.
<4>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Victoria - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<5>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Victoria) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Victoria. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 38.1778, Longitude: -90.5260       In this case, the coordinates for Victoria have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
