Welcome to Ashton ...
Although we found mention of Ashton during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Ashton 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 Ashton was located in Winona County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Ashton to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Ashton - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Ashton, please Contact Us.
