Adding Alpha to Our Gazetteer ...

We originally found mention of Alpha in both the FIPS-55 and the GNIS. For more information, see the FIPS and GNIS Codes sections on our Miscellaneous Page.

In addition, we also found mention of Alpha elsewhere: The earliest book where we found it mentioned was in the Business Atlas and Shippers' Guide (1895).
