Notes for Samuel Ashley
From Wyoming & Lackawanna Valleys, Pennsylvania Genealogies & Family Histories, Vol. 1, p. 267: Colonel Samuel Ashley, third child of Colonel Samuel and Eunice (Doolittle) Ashley, was born Northfield, Massachusetts, Sept. 29, 1747; died Springfield, Pennsylvania, October, 1820… Samuel Ashley settled in Claremont, New Hampshire, and from there entered Revolutionary service as first lieutenant of the fourth company in Colonel Bellow’s Sixteenth New Hampshire Regiment. Later he was made captain in the New Hampshire line and after the close of hte war was commissioned lieutenant-colonel, Dec. 25, 1784, and subsequently colonel, Sept. 25, 1786, of hte Fifteenth Regiment, New Hampshire militia. In the spring of 1818, he removed with his son Charles to Springville, Susquehanna county, Pennsylvania, and although then more than seventy years old and somewhat infirm as the reuslt of his earlier strenuous life, he must be regarded as the pioneer of the Ashley family in Pennsylvania.
