Yes James, we certainly are some degree of cousin. John Gregory Ashe (wife C. Prendiville) was 1st cousin to my gr-gr grandfather, Matt Ashe of Kinard East (wife Mary Doyle). Matt & Mary had Matt, my gr-grndfather (wife Bridget Doyle). Those two were the immigrants. My grandfather James Ashe was born & raised in Holyoke, MA, as was my mother Jean Ashe.
For a few years I was in contact w/Frank Ashe of Lancaster, CA who supplied me w/much of the information he had uncovered in his research. I don't know if he is still living; his father was James P. Ashe, son of John Ashe/C. Prendiville. I've also been in contact w/Robyn Coghlan of Australia who is descended from one of the 2 daughters of John Ashe/C. Prendiville who migrated to Australia circa 1885. I can supply you w/more information if you desire.
