Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Mississippi's counties, including Lincoln, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy of those coordinates. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or maybe historic and gone without an obvious trace.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Norfield - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<4>Area code (769) is an overlay for area code (601).
