Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of North Carolina's counties, including Ashe, 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.

In other words, it's how the residents of Lansing refer to themselves. It's important to note that there aren't any rules for taking a town's name and turning it into a demonym. A demonym is informal and while the majority of Lansing may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.
