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