Welcome to Atchison ...
Although we found mention of Atchison during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Atchison was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it's a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists.
While we are confident that Atchison was located in Fayette County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Atchison to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Atchison - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Atchison, please Contact Us.
