bullet  General Notes:

Jesse Ashby was born in 1738 in Fairfax County, Virginia. He died on 28 Nov 1823 in Ohio Co., KY. He was buried in Walton's Creek Church Cemetery, Ohio Co., KY.

A Revolutionary War veteran. The following information was obtained from my father's notes:

Jesse Ashby was born in Virginia in 1738. His first marriage was to Nancy Williams. His second was to Tamar Ruby. By them he had thirteen children. It is not well documented as to which of his wives was the mother of Elizabeth Ashby. In my review of the data in Dad's file on Jesse Ashby it appears that Elizabeth was the daughter of Tamar Ruby. This is further evidenced by the fact that one of Elizabeth's daughters was named Tamar. There is a great deal of information about his marriages, his children, dates of birth, marriages & deaths, all on one sheet of paper. Copies will be furnished to any one who needs this information. Jesse Ashby served in Capt. Daniel's Company in the Virginia Line. He died in Ohio Co.,
KY, and is buried in Walton's Creek Baptist Church Cemetery near Centertown, in Ohio County, Kentucky. His wife, Tamar, is buried beside him. I have visited this cemetery on several occasions and have taken video pictures of both graves. I also have photographs (prints) of those and other ancestral graves.
