George F Ashby born to George Whitfield Ashby and Rosella Virginia Bunker (dau of famous Siamese Twin, Eng Bunker), married Nelle Ross. His career as railroad president for several companies made him one of the most influential business men of his time. Union Pacific Railroad and others which he headed in the 1920's and beyond, thrived due to his keen intelligence and sharp insight. This self made man, who started as a railroad clerk in 1906, changed history for the better.
