Do you see any corrections or additions? If so, please send it to Flora at fverstaten@dishnet.mail. We are attempting to build on our list realizing that it is not complete. We would like to include a complete list showing where these hamlets or towns were located, in what townships, and if it shared a common name with another known village, town or hamlet.

Many of the villages, hamlets, and towns listed above were small mining towns, and post offices that came and went. Many were named after a creek or a family that settled that run, ridge, or creek area. This list could give you a "clue" to where your family may have lived or their occupation. Much can be learned by the areas in which our families lived!

Maybe you've run into an old name while searching deed records or reading a county or family history. Consider sharing it with us so that we can add it to the list!
