Thank you Lisa for the information. I wanted to see if a Daniel Ash tied into this family from Macon Co., N.C. Daniel was in the 1810 tax list of Lee Co., Va., which later became a part of Scott Co., Va. I believe he was born in S.C. & he was the only Ash to settled there around Scott Co., Virginia. Have you seen anything on Daniel Ash born 1770/80?. I am sure three of his sons were Andrew my line, Daniel & Thomas. Thanks ever so much......Ron

Jesse Ashe m. Mary Huffman. Their daughter, Nancy Ashe, married Jacob Deitz, Jr.. in Lincoln County, NC 12 Oct 1822. Also, Isaac Ash had son Sidney Ash (1830-1910) who married Lucinda Tatham (1828-1892).
The Ash families of Macon County seem to have come from Lincoln County, NC and Virginia.

I am researching these families as they pertain to my lines. If you find out anything else, please let me know. Hope this helps you a little.

Thanks so much for the information Dawn! A lady wrote & told me she had the John Ashe book & my line of Ash was not in this book. I think their is another book by a Morris who wrote on the Ash line. It may have been on Adam Ash. Again, thanks a lot. I appreciate it very much!!

There is a book in the Macon Co., NC public library entitled: ASH/ASHE/STILWELL by John R. Ashe. It has information on the Amos Ashe family, as well as Amos' father-in-law, Jesse Ashe. This is the only place I have ever seen the book, but I'm sure the library would be more than willing to tell you who the publisher is and to give you an address for contacting them and/or the author.

Ephraim had a son Daniel, but he would be too young to be the one that you are looking for. I am descended from Ephraim.

In reviewing a document that tries to explain the origin of the name DEITZ, there is a paragraph regarding Jacob Deitz Jr.

It reads: Jacob Deitz Jr married Nancy Ashe on Oct. 12, 1822. In 1828, they left Catawba County and made their first trip to Western North Carolina. According to the Rev. Thaddeus F. Deitz (grandson of Jacob Jr) who went to Hickory, NC seeking information about his ancestors. Shortly after Jacob Jr married Nancy Ashe, he moved to Haywood or what is now Jackson County, NC. He became dissatisfied after only 3 days and they came back to Catawba County where they settled in the old Hickory Tavern where they lived 2 years. During this period they had two children, Laben and Talitha. Later, desiring to go west, he took his wife and two children and went back to Haywood County (now Jackson County) and lived there the remainder of his life.

Jacob Jr and Nancy had eight more children, then Nancy passed away in the late 1840's. Jacob Jr then married Mary Cabe, daughter of Amos and Esther Cabe, and had three more children; Jacob M., Martin Luther and Thomas W.

Jacob Jr passed away soon after the birth of Thomas W.

Jim,
My Dietz line is Frederich -Jacob sr -Jacob jr -Laban - William Hamilton - Joseph - Joseph - me.
I was curious as to your own line.
I also have a different version of the text you quote with Thad's source identified. Also, as you know Catawba did not exist when Jacob jr migrated to the area around Webster ... which is why both my family bible and census entries have Laban born in Lincoln County. Same place but before the subdivide that created Catawba.
Both Jacob jr. and Nancy are buried in the Old Ash cemetary off the Ashe settlement road in Jackson County (was part of Macon County when Jacob moved there).
If interested in comparing notes email me.
