We have done a cursory search and if it was a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..

We've added Brachipad to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. If you can help us with Brachipad, please Contact Us.

Footnotes ...

<1>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer. For example, we might find a sentence like "He went south past Brachipad and then turned west". While Brachipad could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Brachipad as a placeholder with the hope that we'll be able to add more information in the future.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places (or areas) where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. For example, you might hear somebody say that they are going over to Miller Creek to see Pete ... Miller Creek is just a gas station and a couple of homes at the crossroads. While it might not be on the map, everybody in the area knows it by that name.

Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, several families clustered in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc. The community might still exist, is now gone or only existed for just a short period of time.

Also keep in mind that Brachipad could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong county. Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community - we're working to straighten it all out.
<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Brachipad - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<3>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Brachipad) 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 Brachipad. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Brachipad

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Brachipad. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 41.8149, Longitude: -111.6181

While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
