Welcome to Amos ...
Although we found mention of Amos during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Amos 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 Amos was located in Marion County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Amos to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Amos - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Amos, please Contact Us.
