Frederick Oliver Ashbaugh
Birth: 1779
Mount Joy Township
Adams County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: 1840
Niagara Falls
Niagara Regional Municipality
Ontario, Canada

Husband of Catherine Hagle, United Empire Loyalist

Frederick and Catherine Ashbaugh were very early settlers in Wentworth County, Upper Canada, after the Revolutionary War

Originally buried at First Methodist Church, Hamilton [Interments from this defunct early centre-city burial ground were all moved to Hamilton Cemetery in the late 1800s]

Historical Note:
The Ashbaugh / Eschbach family originated in Germany, likely in the Palantine region of the Rhineland. At the beginning of the 1700s, thousands of Palantine families emigrated to Britain, and many travelled even further (aided by the Crown) to settle in The Colonies of America. The Eschbach family arrived in Pennsylvania about 1735. During the American Revolution / War of Independence, the Eschbach (Ashbaugh) family remained loyal to the British Crown. They eventually removed themselves to the Niagara region of Upper Canada, were granted land from the Crown, and were awarded the designation of United Empire Loyalist. The surname Ashbaugh has continued into this century in the Mount Hope / Glanford area of Hamilton, in the Niagara Peninsula, Ontario
