A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Welcome to Alabama ...
Although we found mention of Alabama during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Alabama was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than a locale or some type of landmark. 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..
While we are confident that Alabama was located in Polk County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Alabama to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Alabama - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Alabama, please Contact Us.
When the people of Alabama refer to themselves (known as a demonym), they frequently use terms like Alabamian or Alabaman.<2>
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Alabama might be (or was) located is in the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT) and observes daylight saving time
We believe that Alabama would be found within the (715) & (534)<3> area codes.

Adding Alabama to Our Gazetteer ...
As we work on our Gazetteer, we occasionally find mention of a community that is new to us. When we find such a community, we add it to our Gazetteer with the hope of adding more information in the future.
Our notes show that the earliest dated mention that we've found for Alabama was in the Business Atlas and Shippers' Guide (1895).
For more details about the above, see References and Mentions for Alabama on our Genealogy Page.
