I, too am related to this line of Ashworth's and I live in Buncombe County, NC. I have just recently found out that the Ashworths were my ancestors. Can you email a picture of the cemetery that you have? I am going to try to locate the cemetery using Ruth Byrne's directions. I believe this John Ashworth was a former owner of the Hickory Nut Gap Farm where my daughter takes riding lessons. According to the history of the farm, a John Ashworth purchased the land in 1801 and built a 3 room cabin. He (or his family)sold the land and cabin in 1834 to Bedford Sherrill who enlarged the cabin and began to operate it as an inn. The building still stands today and is a private residence.
