ASH/Eri/Oxford Farm/CRAWFORD/1880's
Posted by: Michael Peterson (ID *****3593) Date: November 20, 2002 at 16:02:58

I am trying to find some information on the burial site of my gg-grandmother Isabella ASH. Her maiden name was MARSH. She was born in 1798 and died in 4 May 1885 in Eri, Custer Co, NE. In early 1880's she moved to Custer Co, NE to live with her daughter Adeline ASH (Mrs. Harrison CRAWFORD). At that time there were several other ASH family members also living in the area. Family notes indicate she was buried in the Old Jim Oxford Farm. I did find in the rootsweb Custer Co web site an excellent web page on the Oxford Cemetery http://www.rootsweb.com/~necuste2/Cemeters/oxford.htm . We strongly believe that the Mrs. Adam Ash, known as Grandma Ash, is Isabella. What we don't know for sure is if she was one of those at Oxford who were moved, and if so, to where?. If she wasn't moved, is her headstone or marker still there? Was there an obituary or notice in one of the newspapers? These are some of the questions we are trying to answer. If I cannot get a picture of the site, then perhaps I can get some more specific driving details to get there in case I am able to travel there some day. Any help, ideas, stories, news, tidbits of info, etc. would be greatly appreciated and I would be very happy to pay for anyone's expenses. Thanks in advance for any help. Sincerely, Mike Peterson
