ABRAHAM ASHBY (this is listed as Abraham Ashley but it is not Ashley but ASHBY)


Source: H. W. Beckwith History of Montgomery County, Indiana (Chicago: HH Hill, 1881) p. 416
As early as 1829 in the history of this county Mr. Abraham Ashley came from Kentucky to Scott township and entered land which he soon began to improve with a dwelling in which he raised a prosperous family. His son, Thomson V., who, May 30, 1844, was married to Miss Dulcenia, daughter of Mr. Robert and Elizabeth (Malone) Lockridge, now owns the old farm of 400 acres. He formerly owned 1,200 acres, but has lately divided with his children. He has three children: Robert, a citizen of Scott township, a daughter the wife of a Mr. Foster, and William H., who was born in Scott township March 30, 1845, and is living on a part of the old farm, engaged in farming and stock raising, making fine breeds a specialty. He is also engaged in buying and shipping. Mr. Ashley secured a good practical education which he has turned to good advantage, and later in life was married to Miss Elizabeth, a daughter of Joseph Fordice, and has since become the father of three children. Mr. Ashley is one of the live young men of the township, a substantial man, and one wide awake to matters of the public concern. He is a firm advocate of the principles as pronounced by the republican party, and is respected as a good citizen by all with whom he is acquainted.
