Biography: __ ___ ____ Witness; Tyre Asbill (1802- ); "The three eldest children [of William Asbell, Sr. & Nar-nee ("Elizabeth Ross"), Nancy and her two brothers, William, Jr., and Joseph, stayed in Kentucky while all the younger children moved west starting in 1829, when Aunt Sally married her first cousin, Tyre Asbell (1807-1866), and they and Tyre's brother, John, and his wife, Mahala Snow, moved to Missouri. These Asbills figure in Missouri history books as being among the first settlers of the northern part of that state....John & Tyre (pronounced "Ty-ree") stayed in North Central Missouri for just a short time after leaving Kentucky. In 1830, Tyre's brother, Pierce, joined him in Missouri and moved to what later (1841) became Dade Co., which is in the southwest part of the state. Their brother, John Jr., joined them in Dade Co., the following year. Tyre and John stayed in Missouri until 1844, when they struck out for the West on the Oregon Trail. This was four years before John Henry's family left Schuyler Co., MO., for Arkansas. Pierce Asbell (1800-1894) and his family stayed in Missouri. Pierce is buried in the Asbell Cemetery at Bona, MO., with his wife, Mariah, and many of their descendants," (Delmar Asbill, "Asbill, Delmar," e-mail to Donny Perry. [00000])

I noticed that you show Polly Harp's father as Levi. Have you had any
success in researching the Harp family? Have you heard the story of how
Joseph came about marrying Polly? The story in my family is that she was
the "red-headed nurse" who was taking care of Joseph's first wife while she
was bearing a child. After the childbirth, the first wife died, and then
Joseph ended up marrying Polly. I think this story made it into
Bennett's book as a result of his interview with my great-grandmother
Asbell (about 40 or 50 years ago, Bennett showed up at my Grandmother
Brown's doorstep inquiring about our family's connections to the Asbells).
Great-grandmother Asbell was a daughter-in-law of Ancel Asbell. Anyway, I
was curious if this story was passed down in your family as well.

Take care.
