George Ashman Dies At Keeler Home

After an illness of several months, George M. Ashman, 70, well known in both Hartford and Keeler as a carpenter, died at his home in Keeler at 7:30 Saturday morning.

Funeral rites for him were held from the Keeler Methodist church Monday afternoon, the Rev. Thomas Pollard of this village officiating, and burial was in the Keeler cemetery. The Odd Fellows lodge of Keeler conducted services at the grave.

Mr. Ashman was born in Keeler on December 12, 1869, and was a lifelong resident of that township. His death occurred at the farm which his father, John Ashman, an emigrant from England, wrested from the virgin forest. In following his trade as a carpenter, Mr. Ashman built many of the houses now standing in Keeler, Hartford and nearby towns.

On January 21, 1892, he was married to Miss Lydia Slenker of Keeler who, together with one daughter, Thelma, preceded him in death.

On June 29, 1927, he was married to Martha A. Steele at Springfield, Ill.

He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Martha A. Ashman, and by a brother and sister whose present whereabouts are unknown. He also leaves three grandchildren, Virginia, Theodore, and James Carr, and five step-children, Lester Steele and Mrs. Grace Barnes, Baribou, Wis., James Steele, at home, and Harry Steele and Mrs. Paul Burgard, Peoria, Ill.

Mr. Ashman was a member of the Keeler Methodist church and of the I. O. O. F. lodge there.
