Footnotes ...

<1>It's a common practice for mapmakers to remove the apostrophe from possessive names. So Hawks Nest may originally have been Hawk's Nest. Sometimes the trailing 's' might be dropped altogether, in which case Hawks Nest might be written as Hawk Nest. For more information, please visit our Genealogy Helper Page for Hawks Nest.
<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Hawks Nest) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Hawks Nest. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 38.1159, Longitude: -81.1170       In this case, the coordinates for Hawks Nest have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<3>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
