Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Texas' counties, including Bastrop, 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>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for Smithville.
<4>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Smithville - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
