Category: Namesakes US Counties

Categories: United States of America, Notables | United States of America

This category contains profiles of county namesakes.

This project's goal is to identify all the people who have counties named after them in the United States of America. 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.

NOTE: 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.)
