A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Welcome to Ashley ...
Although we found mention of Ashley during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Ashley was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than a locale or some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it was a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
While we are confident that Ashley was located in Ben Hill County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Ashley to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Ashley - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Ashley, please Contact Us.
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Ashley might be (or was) located is in the Eastern Time Zone (EST/EDT) and observes daylight saving time
