Nathaniel Ashby, Jr

Nathaniel Ashby was born to Susan Hammond and Nathaniel Ashby Nathaniel. He first married Virginia Garr on February 13, 1858. They traveled west with the Brigham Young Company in 1848. Nathaniel drove a team for Brother Haven. (Depart June 5, 1848 and arrived in Salt Lake Sept. 22, 1848)

Mary and Nathaniel had ten children: Robert Turner Ashby, Zina Ashby, Mary Virginia Ashby, Nathaniel Ashby, Benjamin Franklin Ashby, George William Ashby, Louisa Adeline Ashby, Bryant Hammond Ashby, Charlotte Marie Ashby and Pauline Ashby.

Nathaniel next married Martha Ann Truman on August 11, 1870 in the Endowment House in Salt Lake City, Utah. Matha Ann and Nathaniel had six children: Richard Truman Ashby, Jacob Henry Ashby, Ann Elizabeth Ashby, Alice May Ashby and Emma Lucilla Ashby and Rodney Carlos Ashby.

Tragedy struck the Ashby home in 1881. Diptheria broke out and the death of three children in less than a week would have been a hard trial for anyone to bear.

Emma Lucilla, Jacob Henry and Alice May died of ditheria.

Nathaniel had tuberculosis at this time. Martha and Nathaniel went on a mission to the Sandwich Islands, hoping the climate might help him. It did not have the desired results and they returned home early in 1882 and On the way home he died near San Francisco, in the Pacific Ocean, while sailing from Honolulu, Sandwich Islands to San Francisco on his way home to St. George.

Martha had feelings of helplessness when she arrived in San Francisco. She was distressed that she had no money or means to convey her husband's body to their home for proper burial. She was met by a stranger on the docks who shook her hand and there was given an envelope that contained sufficient funds to purchase tickets for herself, her stepson and to ship her husband's body to St. George.
