Sadly, many of the towns that our ancestors resided in and many times were the founders of-- are no longer there. They are, perhaps, just a lonely barn or store; sometimes just an old sign marking what once was a major "going concern".
Today they are referred to as Ghost Towns....
What is meant by "Ghost Town"?
For our purposes--
A...Scattered rubble or site where nature has reclaimed the land.
B...Roofless buildings or partially demolished buildings.
C...Boarded up or abandoned buildings, no population.
D...A community with many abandoned buildings and a small population of residents.
