My husband, John Thomas Dressen, is a relative of this Aspden family. His mother was a daughter of Amelia Aspden and she was the daughter of John Thomas Aspden Jr(often called Tom). John Sr. and John Jr. were born in Bury, Lancashire, England. The family came to Massachusetts USA from England, later moving to Minnesota in 1856. John Aspden Senior's children were John, Ellen, Mary Ann, Henry, James and Alice. The following is a quote from the obituary of James Aspden (son) who never married. "James Aspden, Civil War veteran passed away at his home in Chanhassen township, Minneosta after a brief illness, Saturday July 5th, at the age of 90 years and 11 months. He was the son of John Aspden Sr. and Margaret Taylor Aspden and was born in Bury, Lancashire, England, June 24, 1840. In 1849 the family came to Massachusetts. etc" Would love a reply - Jean Dressen wife of John Dressen
