Hi my name is Betsy Ash Schreiber this is my Great Grandmother. She was married to James Ash, Henry's grandson. Susan f. Clarke Ash was born in West Virginia and Died in Ames Iowa. She met James Ash when the Family was traveling to the opening of the Nebraska Territory. James Ash was from Indiana. The Story goes that he and his father along with two other brothers went down into Missouri to follow the Indians that had kidnapped one of the wives or girls.
