Am trying to tie Daniel to his parents. Daniel was married to Margaret Ellen Brown. She was born in 1844, he was supposedly born in 1842. They had 9 children: Woodson, my great-grandfather, James, David, Walter, Edward, Junius, Dwight, Mary, and Nellie. All but Woodson and Mary lived in California. Daniel and his wife are both buried in the Artesia Cemetery. Someone has told me that Daniel was the son of James S. and Faithful Duncan Locke Ashby. The problem with this information is that on the 1850 Chariton County Missouri census, where Daniel is listed with Faithful, Daniel is listed as 16 years of age, which does not correspond to the 1842 birthdate as given by his daughter in his obituary. Can anyone verify from sources his parents?
