A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Welcome to Adelaide ...
Although we found mention of Adelaide during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Adelaide was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than a locale or some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it was a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
While we are confident that Adelaide was located in Marion County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Adelaide to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Adelaide - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Adelaide, please Contact Us.
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Adelaide might be (or was) located is in the Eastern Time Zone (EST/EDT) and observes daylight saving time
We believe that Adelaide would be found within the (419) and (567)<2> area codes.
Adding Adelaide to Our Gazetteer ...
As we work on our Gazetteer, we occasionally find mention of a community that is new to us. When we find such a community, we add it to our Gazetteer with the hope of adding more information in the future.
That's the case with Adelaide: The earliest book where we found it mentioned was in the Business Atlas and Shippers' Guide (1895).
We also found Adelaide on a George F. Cram Map (1901).
For more details about the above, see References and Mentions for Adelaide on our Genealogy Page.
