Rev. Benjamin Ashley was a Baptist Minister. At one time during the late 1700's and early 1800's, St Pauls Episcopal Church was a Baptist church. This didn't change until the early 1830's. Rev. Benjamin Ashley was ordained in the church as a minister in 1803 where he continued to serve until his death in 1820.

Rev. Benjamin Ashley is the grandfather of Congressman and later the 1st. Gov. of Montana, James M. Ashley.

The Reverend had one known son: Rev. John Clinton Ashley.

The church cemetery has no records of the Baptist Church that Rev. Benjamin Ashley was a member nor are there any burial records for that period. His obit. states he was buried at the Baptist Church in Norfolk which is now St Pauls Episcopal Church.
