Those Places You Cannot Find

The location of some places can be difficult to find, particularly if they were never on any map, were not an “official name,” and only known to locals who have long since passed away.

One way to attempt to pinpoint these locations is to search for them in digital versions of old newspapers (using quotation marks around the phrase) or at sites that have out-of-copyright books like http://books.google.com. The location may not have been on a map but could easily have been referenced in a newspaper or 1800-era book.
