I have gleaned this information from several books I have about Richie Ashburn and from Nebraska census records.
Donald Richard "Richie" Ashburn was the son of:Neil Meitland and Genevieve Warner Ashburn
Neil was son of Robert William (called R.W.) and Elizabeth Halsey Ashburn.(R.W. had a brother named Roy L. Ashburn.)
Robert William was the son of William "Jordan" and Jane Dain or Dane Ashburn.
William Jordan was the son of Bird and Mary Havens Ashburn.
Bird was the son of Dabney Anderson and Judah Lanier Ashburn, Jr.Bird was a younger brother of my great great grandfather, Barnett Ashburn an early settler of Nebraska and filer of the first land claim in Franklin County, NE.
Richie's family remained in Nebraska, settling in Tilden.
Barnett's son William Vinson Ashburn (my great grandfather) moved with his family to Oregon (by covered wagon) in about 1892, where my family has remained for the last 115 years--only because they ran out of westward moving trails.
