McCracken places this Asahel (1742-1816) here. Seaver and Bowman place him as a son of Ashel Esq (1720-1817).

This report will continue the line under Ashel Esq. (1720-1817), but leave this entry to point out the possible error by McCracken.

Mary, riding horsseback from Kingston, Pa. to her home along narrow and dangerous paths was unable to urge her frightened horse forward as it had discovered a snake in the path, threatening the horse's advance.
