I'm trying to flesh out the family of Robert and Mazzy (Mary) Ellen Lashley Ash family of Juniata, Adams Co., NE. Robert and Mary Ellen came to Juniata from Bedford Co., PA, via Washington Co., IA, around 1872.Robert Ash was a native of Bedford Co., PA, while wife Mary Ellen Lashley was born a few miles south in Allegany Co., MD.
Their oldest daughter was Almira Virginia Ash, b. 1857 in Bedford Co. She was followed by Marshall, Henry Edgar, Mary, and Emma Gertrude.It's possible that Mary died prior to their arrival in NE.
The latest I've found the family is in the Adams County Gazetteer of 1890.I've not seen any obit, cemetery, deed or will info for Robert, his wife, or children.I'd be interested in trading data with interested researchers and/or descendants.
