Rodney Carlos Ashby was born Sunday, December 12, 1880, in St. George, Washington, Utah, the son of Nathaniel and Martha Ann Truman Ashby. He was the youngest of the family. He became acquainted with sorrow early in life when three older siblings and his father died before he turned two.
Rodneys mother, Martha, remarried in 1885. Rodneys new father was John Powell. In 1888 his life changed dramatically when the Powell/Ashby family moved to Fillmore. John Powell had been on a Temple Mission to St. George when he met and married Martha. His home and family were in Fillmore. As a result, Powell eventually moved his new family from St. George back to Fillmore.
Rodney became an older brother when his step-brothers were born. His first little brother, John Franklin, was born and died in 1886. Later, Jesse and little Nat were born. Rodney was baptized and confirmed by John Powell Thursday, December 13, 1888 in Fillmore, Millard, Utah. Rodney attended school in Fillmore with his brothers and sister.
Rodney grew up and became a farmer and mail carrier in Millard County. He met and courted Jennie Warner , daughter of Jedidiah Morgan Grant Warner and Julia Russell.
They were married Wednesday, January 9, 1901 in the Manti Temple. It was probably through his father-in-law that Rodney became a mail carrier, since Jed Warner had a mail contract. Rodney and Jennie had two children, both born in Fillmore, Rodney Truman and Enid Ashby .
Rodneys life was cut short when he died at age 23, on Tuesday, November 1, 1904. He left behind his wife and two small children.
