West Virginia, USA
|Death: ||Aug. 6, 1897|
Son of William Allen Amsberry of Chautauqua County, New York and Mary Polly Everett of Chelsea, Orange County, Vermont.
Husband of Lucy Caroline Beard of Lynchburg, Bedford County, Virginia, married on 03 March 1848 in Mason County, West Virginia.
On March 4, 1885 the Francis E. Amsberry family left West Virginia for Nebraska. His son, John Allen Amsberry and his nephew, Darius Amsberry, had found valuable government land in Custer County and had notified relations about the opening for settlement. Francis rented a freight or immigrant railroad car, 60' X 10'. On this they stored their furniture and belongings and used it for quarters to get to Nebraska. They departed from Gallipolis, Ohio. Most of the 12 children either went with them or followed later.
Francis homesteaded Section 35, Township 15, Range 18 and farmed 160 acres until his death. Francis died in Mason City, Nebraska and is buried in the Enon Cemetary, which is located on the north line of Section 35, Township 15, Range 18 on the old Amsberry homestead, about three miles west and a little north of the present Mason City. The old former town of Algernon was located northeast from this small cemetary.
