I am seeking information about Daniel Asbell/Asbille (b. c1844 MS; d.5 Aug 1920 Hardin Co., TN).He is listed on 1850 and 1860 Census for Tishomingo Co., MS in household of his mother, Nancy with his sisters Louisa, Arminda, and Mary J.He is listed as head of household on 1870 Census for Prentiss Co., MS with wife, Elizabeth (Stringfellow) and children, Robert M. and Gillie.Listed in 1920 Census for Hardin Co., TN, as a widower living in the household of one of his daughters and her husband.
I'm trying to determine who Daniel's father was, and also his mother's maiden name.There was a Thomas J. Asbel listed in the 1840 Census for Tishomingo Co., MS; also a John Asbel.Based on ages of family members (unnamed in Census), Thomas would be a better fit - but it could be someone else entirely.
Census records vary, but list the birthplace of Daniel's mother, Nancy, as either South Carolina or Alabama.Father's birthplace sometimes listed as Alabama.Not sure whether either of these is correct.
Daniel's son, Robert Monroe Asbille (1868-1909) married Mary Addie Howard (1872-1892) in Hardin Co., TN on 8 Aug 1891.(Robert later remarried and died in Bordwell, KY.)Their daughter was Lillie Asbell (1891-1956), raised by her maternal grandparents.Lillie and her husband, Ezra Bowen (1886-1977) were my grandparents.
I would love to communicate with anyone researching this line, and will gladly share information I have.Thanks!
