A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Welcome to Ariel ...
Although we found mention of Ariel during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Ariel 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 Ariel was located in Lafourche Parish, we don't know its actual location within the parish.
We've added Ariel to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Ariel - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Ariel, please Contact Us.
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Ariel might be (or was) located is in the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT) and observes daylight saving time
