How Far From Dewberry to ...

We spend a lot of time looking through Gazetteers & Almanacs that were published in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Many of the Gazetteers include the distance from a village such as Dewberry to various places of note, such as Parliament Hill.

With a nod to our favorite Gazetteers, the straight-line distance beginning in Dewberry and extending to:

  • View Our List ...

    • Edmonton, which is the Provincial Capital of Alberta, lies 121 miles [194.7 km]<3> to the west (W). If you could drive a straight line from Dewberry to Edmonton, with an average speed<5>of 63 miles [101.4 km]<3> per hour, it would take about two hours to make the trip. A comfortable walk of 2.2 miles [3.5 km]<3> per hour would take 7 days. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km]<3> per hour would take 5 days.

    • The National Capital at Parliament Hill (Ottawa, ON) is 1,640 miles [2,639.3 km]<3> to the east (E). Driving would take most of three days, a buggy would take 64 days and walking would take 94 days.

Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Dewberry, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer as a placeholder. As we find more information about that community, it will be added to our Gazetteer.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places (or areas) where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. For example, you might hear somebody say that they are going over to Mile's to see Pete ... Mile's is just a gas station and a couple of homes at the crossroads. While it might not be on the map, everybody in the area knows it by that name.

Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, several families clustered in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc. The community might still exist, is now gone or only existed for just a short period of time.

Also keep in mind that Dewberry could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong . Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community - we're working to straighten it all out.
<3>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Dewberry) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Dewberry. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Dewberry

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Dewberry. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 53.5879, Longitude: -110.5262    
<4>The Find-a-Grave website is an excellent research tool with information about a cemetery's location and interments. They also offer a forum for their members which can provide additional help. More information about Find-a-Grave can be found on their website: findagrave.com.
<5>While we have tried to pick reasonable speeds, the rate of travel is very theoretical - obstacles like fences, hills, lakes, river crossings and rest stops have been ignored. When we say 'Days' of travel, we're assuming 8 hours of travel per day.
<6>The shortest line can be visualized by stretching a string on a Globe from Point A to Point B - this is known as a Great Circle Route. Where you might expect the shortest route from Dewberry to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
<7>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Jerusalem is 331.425 degrees.
<8>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 332.05 degrees.
<9>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 319.167 degrees.
