Footnotes ...

<1>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer. For example, we might find a sentence like "He went south past Pleasant Hill and then turned east". While Pleasant Hill could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Pleasant Hill as a placeholder with the hope that we'll be able to add more information in the future.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places (or areas) where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. For example, you might hear somebody say that they are going over to Bird Creek to see Pete ... Bird Creek is just a gas station and a couple of homes at the crossroads. While it might not be on the map, everybody in the area knows it by that name.

Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, several families clustered in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc. The community might still exist, is now gone or only existed for just a short period of time.

Also keep in mind that Pleasant Hill could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong county. Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community - we're working to straighten it all out.
<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>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Pleasant Hill - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<4>Area code (980) is an overlay for area code (704).
<5>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Pleasant Hill) to Point B.If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Pleasant Hill. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Pleasant HillOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Pleasant Hill. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 35.2396, Longitude: -81.4812       In this case, the coordinates for Pleasant Hill have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
