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 Bowen, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>If you're interested in how the shape of Ohio's counties, including Lucas, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<3>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.
<4>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Bowen - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<5>Area code (567) is an overlay for area code (419).
<6>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- Bowen) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Bowen. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 41.7159, Longitude: -83.7972       In this case, the coordinates for Bowen have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
