Andrew Ashbaugh’s Second Family
I am especially trying to find further information about his son, Frank.
Andrew Ashbaugh born December 18, 1827 in Adams County, PA lived most of his adult life in Richmond County, Ohio near the city of Crestline. February 24, 1853 he married Emaline Arter with whom he had four children, two of which grew to adulthood. After Emaline died July 22, 1863, he married a second time on July 19, 1870 to Martha Ann Bronker (who was the eldest child of James and Lucina (Tharb) Bronker) with whom he had four more children. They lived in Sandusky Township, Richland Co, Ohio Martha died February 7, 1883Andrew died Feb 16, 1892. The Children were:
William F born Abt 1871 who died February 25, 1943 in Weller Twp, Richland Co, OH. He was not married.
Dalphas (Frank) born about 1874 and was always identified as Frank in the Federal census, Andrew’s Will, and Probate documentation. No record of him has been found since the probate of the will in 1893. The probate document identifies all six of Andrew’s living children,the two living children of Andrew’s first marriage and all four children from his second marriage.Curiously, in the probate record Frank was identified as being only 15 years old although all other records would have him to be 18 years old. Although his two sisters were younger than he, Frank was the only one to have a guardian named.
Dora Alice born February 21, 1877 married Clarence Albert Scott November 28, 1898. Clarence died in 1960 and Alice died in 1961, both in Richland Co., Ohio. They do not appear to have had any children.
Ella May born May 1880 married Ovid W Mitchell May 26, 1917 and lived in MorrowCounty, Ohio. Ovid died 1960, and Ella May died January 1973 and is buried in Memorial Park Cemetery, Mansfield, Ohio They had two children:
Dean born Abt 1919 in Troy Township, Morrow County, OH and may still be living
Dorothy May born Abt 1926 in Troy Township, Morrow County, Ohio and may still be living. It is believed that she married David J Shelly and at one time lived in Wooster, Wayne County, OH.They may have had at least one child
