Adding Alma 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.

We originally found mention of Alma in both the FIPS-55 and the GNIS. For more information, see the FIPS and GNIS Codes sections on our Miscellaneous Page.

In addition, we also found mention of Alma elsewhere: The earliest book where we found it mentioned was in the Business Atlas and Shippers' Guide (1895).

We also found Alma on a George F. Cram Map (1901).

For more details about the above, see References and Mentions for Alma on our Genealogy Page.

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Ohio's counties, including Ross, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Alma - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<3>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Alma) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Alma. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Alma

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Alma. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 39.1879, Longitude: -82.9789
