<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 Sewell Knob, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>Sewell Knob is also known as Swell Knob. For more information, please visit our Genealogy Helper Page for Sewell Knob.
<3>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or 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- Sewell Knob) to Point B.If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Sewell Knob. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Sewell KnobOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Sewell Knob.
