Nearest Communities to Sulphur, By-Parish ...

The purpose of this page is to identify those communities that are closest to Sulphur, on a Parish-by-Parish basis. To explain further, let's use the example from the Genealogy Helper Page for Sulphur:

We have great-grandparents who lived in a small city in the southwest corner of their home parish. During their lives, most doctors were in the next parish to the west. Almost all of the nearby churches and cemeteries were in the parish to the south.

When doing our research, we make it a practice to expand our search by looking in neighboring parishes in addition to the parish in which they lived:  their home parish contained property and probate records; the parish to the west contained birth and death records; the parish to the south contained their burial records. If we hadn't checked the neighboring parishes, we would have missed many valuable sources of information.

Keep in mind that when we give a distance, it's a 'straight-line' distance and not the distance if you are driving it.<1>

If you're researching your genealogy, we hope that the following following information helps.



Sulphur is located in Calcasieu Parish.

The following 5 parishes adjoin and form the boundaries of Calcasieu Parish: Beauregard, Cameron, Jefferson Davis, Newton (TX) & Orange (TX).

Our Gazetteer shows that there are 213 communities within 40 miles [64.4 km] of Sulphur. Of these communities, 150 are located in parishes/counties other than Calcasieu Parish.

We usually exclude communities when we still need to verify their location,<2> but for the purpose of this page, we have included the unverified ('unver') and historic ('hist') communities.

After starting with the home parish for Sulphur (which is Calcasieu Parish), we list the parishes/counties in alphabetical order and for each of those parishes/counties, the closest communities are listed in order of their distance from Sulphur. For the following list, only those parishes/counties that contain communities within 40 miles [64.4 km] are displayed.

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance that starts in Sulphur. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Sulphur) 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 Sulphur. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Sulphur

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Sulphur. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 30.2306, Longitude: -93.3552     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Sulphur have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).

<2>Our data comes from many sources and some sources are more dependable than others. When we add communities to our Gazetteer, we try to verify that we have the correct location for the community. We mark a community as 'Unverified' when we aren't confident about our data and want to do further checking.

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 larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now.

Since our Gazetteer contains over 100,000 communities, verifying everything is going to take time. If you find an error or can help us to improve our accuracy, please let us know.
