Census Data for Adams Crossing ...

Although we found mention of Adams Crossing during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Over time, we expect to discover additional information that will be added to our Gazetteer..

One piece of information that we would especially like to find is the location (ie- GPS coordinates) of Adams Crossing. If you can help us locate Adams Crossing, please Contact Us.


As far as we can tell, Adams Crossing<2> has not been included in past Census counts, so there is no population information for this community.

<1>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer. For example, we might find a sentence like "He went north past Adams Crossing and then turned east". While Adams Crossing could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Adams Crossing as a placeholder with the hope that we'll be able to add more information in the future.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places (or areas) where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. For example, you might hear somebody say that they are going over to Bird Creek to see Pete ... Bird Creek is just a gas station and a couple of homes at the crossroads. While it might not be on the map, everybody in the area knows it by that name.

Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, several families clustered in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc. The community might still exist, is now gone or only existed for just a short period of time.

Also keep in mind that Adams Crossing could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong county. Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community - we're working to straighten it all out.

Just in case there has been confusion between counties, we found that there are two South Carolina communities named Adams Crossing: This one is located in Anderson County and the other is located in Oconee County. For more information, see our Tidbits & Trivia Page for Adams Crossing.
<2>It's a common practice for mapmakers to remove the apostrophe from possessive names. So Adams Crossing may originally have been Adam's Crossing. Sometimes the trailing 's' might be dropped altogether, in which case Adams Crossing might be written as Adam Crossing.
