Just saw your message on GENFORUM and was delighted to see that you are also a descendant of Aaron Asbell (my gr-gr grandfather).I am descended from Aaron and first wife Elizabeth Bonner through William Nelson Asbell and Sarah Elizabeth Cloyes.
I have been inquiring about the history/ancestry of Lydia Key for several years but to no avail.The only other bit of info I have on her is that she was supposedly the sister of Elizabeth Boyd Key who married Henry Calvin Cloyes (also my gr-gr grandfather) with whom she had at least six children.
I presume you are descended through Thomas O. Asbell - son of Aaron and Lydia?
I have no data confirming Indian ancestry in the Asbell line other than my Dad remarking he had some Indian blood in his veins - but then he was a great kidder and never offered any proof?
I would like very much to exchange data with you and see what else may be new to each of us.
