Do you know of Amy ???

When we encounter a name that is new to us, we add it to our Gazetteer - that's the case with Amy.

This entry has been created as a placeholder - we hope to develop more information in the future.

This entry could be in error. It might be that our source had a mis-print, was simply wrong or we made a transcription error while referencing it. We hope to learn more about Amy in the future.

We found mention of Amy as a post office, but can't determine its location - other than being located somewhere in Delta County, Texas.

It's common that the post office is named the same as the community in which it's located (although that's not always case). In this case, we can't match this post office to any of the existing communities in our gazetteer.

While we don't have a date for the founding of Amy, you might consider that their post office opened  in 1894.

Using our Gazetteer, we found that there are 8 communities that are also named Amy - they are located in Arkansas, Kansas (2), Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Virginia and Wisconsin.
