States: Virginia: Clarke
I am looking for any information on an Ashby family who lived in Clarke County, Va. My grandmother named Fannie Cleveland Ashby b abt 1880/1886 daughter to James Robert Ashby and Georganne Virginia Huff(Hough). Her obituary says she was born in Clarke County and resided with both her husbands, Francis Marion Smallwood and Ivey O. Wicker in Loudoun County where they are all buried in the Ebenezer Church Cemetery in Bloomfield, Va. I never new her or any other members of my family and would love to learn about her and her parents if anyone could possibly help. I am sorry but I don't have much else to go on, I have spoken to some people in Loudoun County who new her and that are still alive but they really don't want to talk about her or the family. They will tell me that her and her children were very wild but that's it. One of her son's was my father Ernest C. (Jack) Smallwood who died when I was an infant in Alexandria Hospital. I assumed that Fannie was only a nickname and perhaps that this is why I can't find anything on her. If anyone has any information on her or her parents I would greatly appreciate hereing from you.
James & Renee Smallwood
