Welcome to Augusta ...
Although we found mention of Augusta during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Augusta 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 Augusta was located in Perry County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Augusta to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information.
