Danielle-- Joseph was pretty popular, I have a Joseph born in 1861, as a brother to my Grandfather. I have little info on him, but show him married to a Mary, and show a son named Clearance. I also have record on one born in 1805 and one born in 1837.
Seems all the Ashings come from the 4 brothers James,John,Samuel,William in 1777 in Maryland. They migrated thru KY into OH, IA, AR, and MO.
