Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Jamestown, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.

<3>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance from Jamestown. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Jamestown) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Jamestown. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 37.5410, Longitude: -116.7837     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Jamestown have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
