Nearest Communities to Spirit Falls, By-County ...

The purpose of this page is to identify those communities that are closest to Spirit Falls, on a County-by-County basis. To explain further, let's use the example from the Genealogy Helper Page for Spirit Falls:

We have great-grandparents who lived in a small community in the northeast corner of their home county. During their lives, most doctors and hospitals were in the next county to the east. Almost all of the nearby churches and cemeteries were in the county to the north.

When doing our research, we make it a practice to expand our search by looking in neighboring counties in addition to the county in which they lived:  their home county contained property and probate records; the county to the east contained birth and death records; the county to the north contained their burial records. If we hadn't checked the neighboring counties, we would have missed many valuable sources of information.

Please note that when we give a distance, it's a 'straight-line' distance and not the distance if you are driving it.<1>

If you're researching your genealogy, we hope that the following following information helps.



Spirit Falls is located in Lincoln County.

The following 5 counties adjoin and form the boundaries of Lincoln County: Langlade, Marathon, Oneida, Price & Taylor.

Our Gazetteer shows that there are 218 communities within 40 miles [64.4 km] of Spirit Falls. Of these communities, 181 are located in counties other than Lincoln County.

We usually exclude communities when we still need to verify their location,<2> but for the purpose of this page, we have included the unverified ('unver') and historic ('hist') communities.

After starting with the home county for Spirit Falls (which is Lincoln County), we list the counties in alphabetical order and for each of those counties, the closest communities are listed in order of their distance from Spirit Falls. For the following list, only those counties that contain communities within 40 miles [64.4 km] are displayed.

Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance that starts in Spirit Falls. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Spirit Falls) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Spirit Falls. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 45.4530, Longitude: -89.9807     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Spirit Falls have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).

<2>Our data comes from many sources and some sources are more dependable than others. When we add communities to our Gazetteer, we try to verify that we have the correct location for the community. We mark a community as 'Unverified' when we aren't confident about our data and want to do further checking.

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 larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now.

Since our Gazetteer contains over 100,000 communities, verifying everything is going to take time. If you find an error or can help us to improve our accuracy, please let us know.
