Paul, Here are a few answers to some of your localities.  I will list
only those I can find, or for which I have my spies searching:

Alabama: Etowah County: Tumlin Gap.  There is no population here, it is a
         railroad stop, ca 34 degrees 03 min N, 86 degrees 12 min W.

California: Los Angeles County: Hynes.  Now part of Paramount, and in
         1948, Hynes and Clearwater merged.

Illinois: very north edge of Chicago, just south of Niles County border.
         It is on the North Chicago River, and on the CMSP&P RR line, NNW
         of Mayfair.

Arizona: Cochise County: Palmerlee, now called Garces.

Wyoming: Fort Lewis: I have my spy out searching for this one.
