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 Elliott, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>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.
<3>Elliott is also known as Elliott's. For more information, please visit our Genealogy Helper Page for Elliott.
<4>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Elliott) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Elliott. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Elliott

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Elliott. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 28.9834, Longitude: -95.9951     [Map].
