I retired as a CAPT, USN in 1997, and discovered genealogy. Much of my family is from the E PA/SE OH area, I have extensive info on Philadelphia Ashtons, both from my particular line ("Lower Dublin" Ashtons), and several others in the area. I also have extensive info on descendants of George W. Dewalt who settled in Harrison Co, OH 1800-1805. I have several brick walls, but also enjoy helping others discover their ancestors.

Hi! I saw your comment on Townsend-1665... any reason you didn't propose the merge (with Townsend-85)?

I respectfully replied to your messages about the uncertainty of Isaac Ashton being the father of Thomas Ashton of Bucks Co., PA. I have indeed marked the relationship as exactly that - uncertain. I am not going to unlink them, as I do believe there is enough circumstantial evidence to indicate that Isaac Ashton is very likely the father of said Thomas Ashton. The Isaac Ashton of Omskirk (and Skelmersdale and possibly also Marsden) was a Quaker and had connections with settlements in Philadelphia. The relationship between the two men will remain marked as uncertain until more solid proof is discovered. Quaker records from the UK should be examined, if possible.

Hi Sharon,

Regarding your follow up on the father of Thomas Ashton, my previous email explained my participation in this family. I really cannot help in this situation. Previously: Under Isaac: Hi folks, my entry for Thomas was only to give Hannah Hough a husband, I am not a follower of Ashton. I'd be happy to be removed as a mgr for Thomas. Am also working on or just completed a merge for Hannah, will double check tomorrow. Barb

Hi Sharon,

Trying to find evidence on the early Quaker Ashtons of Philadelphia and Bucks County has been a challenge. I do think the Ashtons in the records of Hardshaw West Meeting in Lancashire are the ones who came to Pennsylvania. Will we ever find passenger lists or transfer certificates? Likely not. But I did find this: 1 May 1685 a salutary intro of a transferring member to Philadelphia MM, "from a monthly meeting at Isaac Ashtons in Clitherow (Clitheroe) called by the name of Marsden Meeting". Clitheroe is some distance from Skelmerdale/Hardshaw, but it would appear that this Isaac is the Issac Ashton who married Sarah and had two of his children christened at Marsden. Finding a transfer certificate for this Isaac from Hardshaw to Marsden would clinch it. ...the hunt continues!

Hi Sharon, I really appreciate your edits but please realize that I only just uploaded my GEDCOM file and it was approved today - I haven't yet had a chance my self to review it and clean it up ( know how messy WikiTree GEDCOM uploads can be!) Please give me a bit of time to do a little tidying up this week... thanks!

Thank you for all the work that you have done on the Ashton profiles. It looks good and is explained well. You have looked at a lot of LDS films over the years to be able to do this. Well Done!

Just checking in with a few quick tips:

Free Space pages are wiki pages for supplementing your family history. They can be used to profile anything of significance such as a special pet, a meaningful event, a school you attended, a family heirloom .... They're "anything pages".

Not sure what to include in a profile? Check out our Biography Ideas and Styles and Standards help pages.

Lastly, sometimes you'll run into unresponsive profile managers. We have a process for resolving those unfortunate situations.

If you have any questions, please ask!
