Bio and Links
Bio Photo The second oldest of four children born to Harry & Evelyn Ashburn. US Navy veteran, former long haul tractor trailer driver and now a retired CEOL (Construction Equipment Operator [Light]) with the New York State Thruway.
All of the entries that I've posted in this site relate to family members, friends, or others with whom I've had some personel connection.
Because of some physical limitations I'm reluctant to add my name to the photo volunteer list but I'd certainly be willing to try to help with whatever photos I can if I'm provided with specific information on location and it's within a reasonable distance of my home in the 12590 zip code. I have a good digital camera and I'm reasonably good using it so the results should be something you'll be happy with. Keep in mind though, we sometimes get heavy snow during the winter months (when else?) and grave marker photography will probably be pretty limited during that time of year.

Enos Ashburn
Looking through the 1870 census in Preston Co. (which is hard to read) I ran across this on Page 23 line 5-9 Family 169:
Ashburn, Enos, age 33, born PA
Ashburn, Phebe Ellen, Age 32, born VA
Ashburn, Elmer Evans, Age 5, born WV
Ashburn, Annie E., age 4, born WV
Nelson, Edwin M., age 24, born VA

I believe Annie may be Hannah Elizabeth that married Warren Loar.

In the transcribed version, all were listed under Nelson.

Gilley May Ashburn (Female) is listed in Preston born 02 Jul 1873 and died of Croup 27 Dec 1878 (under Gillen May Ashburn).

Elmer Evans Ashburn's death cert is in Morgantown, Monongalia Co. and available online.

Hope this information is helpful.

Billy Fitzpatrick
Hi John, I just came across your posting of the obit and headstone of my cousin Billy Fitzpatrick. I enjoyed reading your memories of him. He was my mother's first cousin. I have photos of Fitzpatrick headstones at St. Mary's, but did not have Billy's. Thank you for having posted these. Cheri

Hi John -

I've just discovered that I have quite a few distant ancestors buried in this cemetery. May I have your permission to use the photo you took of the entrance? I'd like to use it for those ancestors that don't have markers in my genealogy database ( Mine are the Barton's & families.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Thank you so very much for adding him to his father and mother. Gene, as we called him, was born in Jamestown, Fentress, Tn. I was pretty young when he left for the Navy and I didn't get to see him but one more time. I was really glad to find your nice memorial to him. Some time after his mother died his dad married my Aunt Nora Edith Beaty. I think he would have really liked your memorial to him.
