Birth: May 8, 1839, USA
Death: Jan. 28, 1888
Monroe County
Indiana, USA

Thomas was born to parents Francis Ashbrook and Jane Baker @1839, making him approximately 22 years old when he volunteered to serve in Co. G, 38TH IND INF on Sept. 18, 1861. His younger brother John (1842-1864) also served in Co. G. Thomas and John had seven sisters: Amanda (b. 1828), Martha Agnes (1830-1905), Nancy Jane (b. 1832), Rachel (b. 1834), Matilda C. (b. 1836), Sarah (1840-1895), and Mary O. (1849-1898). Thomas was employed by Franklin S. Carlton's lumber business in Bean Blossom Twp., Monroe Co., IN before the Civil War.

During his time in Co. G, Ashbrook was promoted to CPL. He received a medical discharge due to wounds received at the Battle of Perryville, KY on Oct. 8, 1862. On May 4, 1863, shortly after his release from the army, Thomas applied for a veteran's invalid pension (app. #21,045; cert. #24,438 - Indiana). Thomas was still required to register for the federal draft in June 1863 even though he had been previousy discharged for his Perryville wounds. According to the draft registration records, he was 24 years old, single, and lived in Richland Twp., Monroe Co., IN at that time. Ashbrook passed away on Feb. 17, 1887
