<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Mississippi's counties, including Simpson, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Coats - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Coats. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Coats
