Four generations of my line are shown below. Any comments, additions, etc.
are welcome and would be appreciated. The James Ashworth listed as a son of
Benjamin, is only supposition (the Justice of the Peace for all three
marriages, Jonathan, Benjamin W., and James was Wm. Crawford).

Regards,
Larry Ashworth
