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 Walkers Crossing, 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 Walkers Crossing may originally have been Walker's Crossing. Sometimes the trailing 's' might be dropped altogether, in which case Walkers Crossing might be written as Walker Crossing.

<5>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.
