This project's goal it to identify all the people who have counties named after them in the USA. Each one will get a tag and a list of states where counties named after them are located.

  • Unconnected existing profiles will need to be connected.
  • Additional profiles will need to be created and connected.

Wikipedia has an index of all the US counties. It's a good base to work from, with one caveat: Not all the counties with the same name are named after the same person. For example, there are four Smith Counties, each named after a different person: Daniel (Tennessee), David (Mississippi), James (Texas) and J. Nelson (Kansas.)

Coordinator is Elizabeth Winter who can provide additional information upon request. She has a spreadsheet with links and information about over 1400 individuals that belong in the category. No need to duplicate efforts!
