Cyrena Priscilla Herrington Ash

  • Birth 11 Oct 1834 Illinois, USA
  • Death 5 Jul 1894 Texas, USA
  • Burial Jonesboro, Coryell County, Texas, USA
  • Memorial ID 14393682

Wife of R.B Ash
(Robert Benjamin Ash)

Family story says that Cyrena was a young widow when she married Robert Ash and that she was 1/4 Cherokee Indian. I have not been able to verify either of these family stories.

[Having completed a DNA test, I do not believe she is Native American.]

1860, 1870 and 1880 US Federal Census' consistently give her place of birth as Illinois. The 1880 census lists her father and mother as being born in Tennessee.
