Footnotes ...

<1>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 significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Barlow, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.

<2>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau.

<3>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance that stretches from Barlow. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Barlow) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Barlow. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 38.3945, Longitude: -81.5826     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Barlow have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).

<4>The communities in our count are those provided by the 2010 Census, so keep in mind that our population rings will only include the people living in those communities. Smaller communities usually don't participate directly in the Census and therefore they won't be included. While our count is a close approximation, it shouldn't be considered as a complete or accurate count.
