In the Nelson Co, Marriage records there is a Thomas Bailey married to Elizabeth Ash on 1/9/1803. Surety was George William Bailey. There is a John A. Bailey married to Caroline Gregory on 10/12/1828, surety was John Ash. Do you know if Elizabeth Ash or John Ash were related to Parmelia?
Have you been able to get any info on this family?
I believe I may be descended through Thomas Bailey and Elizabeth Ash. I am seeking additional info on this family.

You may already have this information by now, but the Ash families who settled in the Bardstown area were Roman Catholics from Charles County, Maryland. My line is from Charles Ash. Bonnie Barnes Worley

Christine, I will share what I have on my Ash family and you let me know what you already have and if I can add to it. My Ash family came from Charles County, Maryland and went to Kentucky after the American Revolution. Charles Ash was in the Maryland Militia and I have a record showing this. The Ash's were Roman Catholic and settled near Bardstown in Nelson County which was a community made up of Catholics from Maryland. Maryland Catholics went into Kentucky because they were not treated well, although originally the Catholics who came from England with Lord Baltimore were granted their own land. Many Marylanders who lived along Chesapeake Bay lost everything during the Revolution because the British fleet anchored in the bay and raided all of the plantations for supplies. Records show that Charles Ash lived at Port Tobacco. Charles had three daughters who married three brothers. Ignatius, James and Charles Strange were the sons of John Sylvester Strange and Anastasia Bird Medley also from Maryland. The Medley's were very early settlers in the colony and John Medley owned large plantations on the mouth of the Potomac River. The tobacco plantations had their own docks and the ships from England could come right to them and traded fine furniture, china etc. for tobacco, enabling the planters to live like the English gentry. James and Nancy Jane Ash Strange are my ancestors. From what I have heard from my mother's family the Strange's were fisherman before they went to Kentucky. In Kentucky, Charles Ash and his three sons-in-law were involved in a lawsuit when they built a fishing dam on the river where they lived. The records for the fish-dam lawsuit are in the Kentucky archives. My maternal great-grandmother was Margaret Strange who married Jared Michael in Xenia, Clay County, Illinois in 1864. Margaret was the daughter of John Medley Strange and Nancy Edwards. I will look in my records and see what I can find. Bonnie
