Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Tennessee's counties, including Davidson, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<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>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Antioch - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<4>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Antioch) to Point B.Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Antioch. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 36.0601, Longitude: -86.6722       In this case, the coordinates for Antioch have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<5>If we have found a location and have questions about the accuracy of our information, we will simply say that the marker is 'in the vicinity'. We are not confident about the location and the position of our marker is only a rough guide. If we have too many doubts about the location, we will not include it in our database.
