I am not researching this family, just entering information from the booklet "Pioneer Amnerica, July, 1970."The article was written by Henry H. Douglas:
"The Page County Aleshire progenitor was Joseph Aleshire (born 1796, died 1849), followed by Reuben Aleshire (born 1830, died 1896).The last of the Aleshire name of this family was borne by John B. (1857-1930), his sons Samuel R. and Harry, and John's brother Charles L., who died September 16, 1939, in Adams County, Indiana.Reuben's nine children, in order of birth, were:Mattie, Sallie, John B., Emma, Charles L., Permelia, Mollie, Lula and Susan."
"In August 1894 Reuben divided his property among his nine children with the home place going to Permelia.Six of his other children built homes on their inheritance, worked the land, and reared their families.Today only three parcels of the original farm are owned by the family."
There is further information on this family in the booklet, as wll as a photograph of Reuben and his wife Sara Elizabeth (Brubaker), taken in the 1880.There are two sketches of the original house; a photograph taken at the home of a Sunday gathering in 1888, in which Reuben and his wife are among the group; photograph of Reuben's tombstone; photograph of the east side of the house in 1970; drawing of the two story floor plan; photograph of the post Civil War barn; photograph of Louis William Shaffer (owner of the house) taken in 1968; and two photos taken in 1970 when the house was used for storage.
