Husband - Levi Ashbrook

From the Chenoweth site: http://www.chenowethsite.com/ch1j0d.htm

Mary was the first known daughter and seventh child of John and Mary Smith Chenoweth. She was probably born in Frederick County, Virginia and married there at the age of 20, Levi Ashbrook, ten years her senior. He was the son of Aaron Ashbrook and Hannah Cooke. Levi, a preacher and Justice of the Peace, was a widower with three or four children. He would later serve in the Revolutionary War. Together he and Mary would produce 12 more children, all probably born in Hampshire County. This next generation would extend the Ashbrook-Chenoweth ties. Mary's stepson, Levi, and two of her own sons, John and Absolum, married Chenoweth daughters of Mary's brother, John Chenoweth and probably his second wife Eleanor Parke. These latter two of were first cousin marriages. Another four Ashbrook children would marry into the Peters family. The Ashbrook lines would spread to Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois. Levi died in his fifties in 1794 and Mary remarried ten years later to James McBride of Virginia, who she also survived.
