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 Abbott Cove and then turned west". While Abbott Cove could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Abbott Cove 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 Miller Creek to see Pete ... Miller 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 Abbott Cove 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 . 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>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy. 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 gone without an obvious trace.

<3>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Abbott Cove) 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 Abbott Cove. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Abbott Cove

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Abbott Cove. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 49.5333, Longitude: -55.2973     [Map].

<4>Unless noted otherwise, the population counts we use should be considered estimates. Our population values for Abbott Cove were taken from various sources and although they can be traced back to Statistics Canada (StatCan), they should not be considered official.
