Remember that some roads were there even before county lines were drawn, so the pattern of doing business in a county next door may have actually been closer than the County Seat of Taylor County.

Mail Routes often cross county lines. Many of them followed train routes so rural deliveries may even have been from a Post Office in a neighboring county.

Church Associations of the various denominations often met on an annual basis, and these also did not follow county lines.

Marriages often took place in neighboring counties for some of the same reasons.
