My great-great-grandfather, Charles Ash, was born in England. He and his brother, Robert, were in the Queen's Guard. After seven years of service, they jumped ship in Quebec, Canada. Robert was sent back to England, but Charles was never caught and remained in Quebec. He worked at Pont Louis across the St. Lawrence from Quebec City. He met and married a woman named Rosanna Pomerleau (or Pomeroy or Pomereau) from St. Marie, Quebec. They had two children born in Canada: William (dob: 4/26/1857 in South Ham, Quebec) and Charles. They moved to the St. Johnsbury, Vermont area where two more children were born: Henry and Tom. Two other children were born in Irasburg, Vermont: Clara and Peter. The family then moved back to South Ham, Quebec, where another son, Horace, was born. The family lived in South Ham quite awhile until hard times came upon the family. Charles moved back to the US leaving his family behind. They eventually all moved to the US except William who stayed in South Ham and worked as a blacksmith under a man named George Singer. Eventually, he, too, came to the U.S.
William settled in the NH and married a woman named Jennie Day. They had the following children: William Horace Ashe, Harvey Day Ashe, Jennie Eunetia Ashe, Volney Day Ash.
Peter moved to Michigan.
I would love any information on this family or find a connection.
