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 Emory, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.

<4>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Emory) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Emory. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 36.1765, Longitude: -84.5908     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Emory have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
