Ashley Ancestors Help
My name is Chris Ashley.I have a lot of information concerning my family.However, I would like to trace all the way back to England if possible.Plus I would like to get my family crest.I have found 2 Ashley's in England.
An abridged version of what I have so far is:
John (b. 1765 Kent, Maryland; d. unknown)
Richard (b. 1802 SC; d. unknown AL)
Sanford (b. 1851 AL; d. 1905 AL)
William Andrew (b. 1888 AL; d. 1972 AL)
William Howard (b. 1922 AL; d. 2004 AL)
Danny Bruce (b. 1954 AL)
Christopher Bruce (b. 1979 AL - me)
Additional information I have is that there was a Sophia Ashley (b. approx. 1730; d. approx. 1805) listed on the 1890 census as a widow in Kent, Maryland.She is believed to be the mother of John listed above.
I also have siblings and wives of the men listed above if needed.Any and all help would be appreciated.
