Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Texas' counties, including Lamar, 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 Adams - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<4>Area code (430) is an overlay for area code (903).
<5>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- Adams) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Adams. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 33.7048, Longitude: -95.4880       In this case, the coordinates for Adams have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<6>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy of those coordinates. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or maybe historic and gone without an obvious trace.
