My reverse geocoder (not the postgis version) using Tiger 2014 data reports:
lon = -84.23022580144594
lat = 35.369982395410545
address = 1152 Rafter Rd
village = TELLICO PLAINS
city = 3
county = Monroe
state = TN
country = US
postcode = 37385
distance = 22.583276897
linkid = 85310215
City is determined based on the county subdivision name and in some
states this is just a number. I get the village name by looking up the
zipcode and getting its name.
This is just the Census data doing its funky thing.
