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 Ashland, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.

<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Ashland) 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 Ashland. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Ashland

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Ashland. We have been unable to find the coordinates for Ashland. That said, to estimate its location, we are using the latitude and longitude of what we believe to be a nearby cemetery (likely the town cemetery). The cemetery that we've chosen is named Ashland Cemetery and it is located at 39.1102, -96.6155   [Map].
