Robert Mutrie and John Cardiff based this list of place names on many sources -- including original research and many hours spent criss-crossing the county.

Robert G. Moore assisted with 19th century post office information and place names along Norfolk's western border with Elgin County. Wayne Jackson contributed several Houghton Township names. 
Jo Weitzel proof-read our efforts and recorded GPS coordinates.
