Darley - William Ashley Connection
Posted by: Earl Cook Date: February 09, 2002 at 09:56:03

I have been interested in finding more information on the connection to William Ashley. Lon Darley states that John Wesley Darley, Sr. (son of Rev. Thomas Darley and Sarah Snelling) married the grand daughter of Gen. William Henry Ashley. History, though, says Gen. Ashley had no children. Recently, I found a new Ashley website that focuses on the Ashley family of South Carolina and there happens to be several William Ashleys in this line.

Amazingly, there is a William A. Ashley that died in 1838, the exact year that Gen. William H. Ashley died. So, I can see where there might be some confusion about which William Ashley we are talking.

For more information, please check out my site at:

I am very interested in feedback and would like to know if anyone thinks my theory is correct.
