<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>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for Aberdeen.
<4>The full book title is The Origin of Certain Place Names in the United States (Second Edition). See our References and Mentions section for Aberdeen.
