1890 Communities Near Davidsville ...

We largely built the following list with information that came from an Atlas published by Rand McNally in 1895. The Atlas had details such as the population of the community (which appears to have come from the 1890 Census) and whether there was a post office and/or railroad service available. Over time, we will continue to add communities that we find during on-going research.

If it applies, we indicate whether a community no longer exists and is now historic.<1>

The Rand McNally Atlas shows that Davidsville had a population of 310 people in 1895 with a post office and no railroad service.

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 Davidsville, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>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.
<3>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a '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- Davidsville) to Point B.

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Davidsville. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 40.2270, Longitude: -78.9364       In this case, the coordinates for Davidsville have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
