County Locator

Sometimes one reads or hears about a county in the news, and yet the author or speaker has failed to indicate the corresponding state. This may occur either because s/he is familiar with the region and yet forgets the national scope of his audience, or through simple neglect.

To handle this problem, these pages allow one to the find the state(s) corresponding to a given county name. Famous political figures from our nation's past figure prominently in county names, e.g. Washington is a county in thirty-one states! Apart from this and similar cases, a single state, or a small number thereof, can be associated with a supplied county name.
