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 Piedmont, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>If you're interested in how the shape of Wyoming's counties, including Uinta, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
