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 Mercers Saltworks, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>It's a common practice for mapmakers to remove the apostrophe from possessive names. So Mercers Saltworks may originally have been Mercer's Saltworks. Sometimes the trailing 's' might be dropped altogether, in which case Mercers Saltworks might be written as Mercer Saltworks. For more information, please visit our Genealogy Helper Page for Mercers Saltworks.
<3>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Mercers Saltworks) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Mercers Saltworks. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 37.4826, Longitude: -80.8784       In this case, the coordinates for Mercers Saltworks have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<4>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.
<5>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
