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