I believe I have a link to this John Ashmore. My Greatgrandfather Samuel Earl Ashmore was born in Brantford, Ontario in 1847. He had a twin brother John. The family moved to Waterloo, NY in August 1847. Samuel married and moved to Union City, MI
John and Samuel's parents were John and Mary Ashmore who immigrated from Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, England. John's parents were William and Sarah.
