Do you know of Alton ???
When we encounter a name that is new to us, we add it to our Gazetteer - that's the case with Alton.
This entry has been created as a placeholder - we hope to develop more information in the future.
This entry could be in error. It might be that our source had a mis-print, was simply wrong or we made a transcription error while referencing it. We hope to learn more about Alton in the future.
We found mention of Alton as a post office, but can't determine its location - other than being located somewhere in McKean County, Pennsylvania.
It's common that the post office is named the same as the community in which it's located. In this case, we can't match this post office to any of the communities in our gazetteer.
The earliest mention that we've found of Alton was in the Business Atlas and Shippers' Guide dated 1895 (see the 'Miscellaneous References' section below).
