Norway, IN
Norway is a community in Union Twp., White Co., IN. Norway was originally called Mt. Walleston, and under the latter name was laid out in 1845. A large share of the early settlers being natives of Norway caused the present name to be selected. A post office was established at Norway January 1898 with Wm. H Cohee as postmaster. It was already discontinued in December 1899 with mail to Monticello.

Not confirmed: Kaarland, IN
Kaarland, Benton Co., IN. Established 1882 with Samuel Lefevre as postmaster. Name-change 1883 to Lochiel.
