Welcome to Ashton ...

So far, we have found very little information about Ashton. The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<1>

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.


While we don't have the exact location of Ashton, we believe that it would have been located within present day Ulster County<2>.

We don't have a date for the establishment of Ashton. The community came to an end when it was inundated by the Ashokan Reservoir. More information can be found in the Details section on the Genealogy Helper Page for Ashton..

Time Zone: The area where Ashton was located is in the Eastern Time Zone (EST/EDT) and observes daylight saving time

Adding Ashton to Our Gazetteer ...

As we work on our Gazetteer, we occasionally find mention of a community that is new to us. When we find such a community, we add it to our Gazetteer with the hope of adding more information in the future.

That's the case with Ashton: The earliest book where we found it mentioned was in the Business Atlas and Shippers' Guide (1895).

For more details about the above, see References and Mentions for Ashton on our Genealogy Page.

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 Ashton, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>If you're interested in how the shape of New York's counties, including Ulster, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
