Including the county makes it unnecessary to include the 'township' label abbreviated or not.
Do you know of any examples of townships crossing county lines?
How many TWP articles do you anticipate?
Do you anticipate more TWP records in other countries (England)?
I disagree that including the county makes it unnecessary to include the "Township" label. As Jimmy mentioned, a township is a different records jurisdiction than a town. A township is usually a jurisdiction larger than a town but smaller than a county. Many townships share their name with one of the larger towns within its borders, so leaving out the label "Township" when in fact you're referring to the township is misleading to the user, who needs to know which jurisdiction the record is in.
In answer to your question of volume, there are probably around 3000 counties in the U.S. I'm guessing the number of townships is geometrically larger.
