John Ashelman, died last Tuesday, August 10th. Passed to his reward, he was an aged and honored man. He died at the residence of his son, Jerry, in Monroe Township, from a complication of diseases, superinduced by old age.
His remains were buried in the Reformed Cemetery on Dutch Run, last Thursday, August 12th. When Mr. Ashelman cam to Monroe Township a dense forest, penetrated only at rare intervals by winding roads covered the land. At Zanesville, was the nearest gristmill and thither, over forty miles of muddy and torturous roads; he was compelled to go for necessary provisions. With many hardships and many a drawback the land was cleared and prepared for cultivation. He himself was no landowner, but has helped to clear the forest for cultivation. He had lived in Monroe Township for nearly 60 years. -- The Democratic Standard, August 20, 1897
