Adolphus D. Ashby, Sabine Parish, Louisiana: Submitted: by : Gaytha Carver Thompson; Source: History of Sabine Parish by John G. Belisle, The Sabine Banner Press, 1912 (Page 278)

Mr. Ashby is a member of the Parish School Board from Ward Seven. He was born in Itawamba County, Miss., and lived there until 18 years of age, receiving such education as the small rural schools afforded, which was very limited. He came to Sabine parish in 1899 and resided here ever since. On March 9, 1910, he was married to Miss Mattie Belle Bruce. Mr. Ashby's principal occupation has been farming, but in 1910 he entered the ministry of the Congregational Methodist church, with which denomination he is prominently identified. His chief regret is that he was unable to finish his education. In 1912 he was elected member of the Parish School Board and at the organization of the new board he was elected chaplain of that body, being the first man ever honored with that position. Mr. Ashby has always been an advocate of a modern educational system that would thoroughly fit the youths of the parish for the battle of life and the attainment of a more ideal citizenship, and his influence will be cast with all progressive movements for the public wealth.
