Bob Asher, P. O. Box 119, Hyden, KY 41719; 606/672-2334; bobasher@tds.net, shares this photo and writes: "This photo was made in the Red Bird area of Clay County or possibly Bell County ca. 1903. We present-day Ashers think it was a birthday gathering for Elizabeth Hendrickson Asher (born 1827). She is wearing the black dress. Elizabeth was the wife of Josiah Asher (born 1817). Josiah was a son of Dillion Asher (born 1777) and Salley Davis. Identifications were difficult over 100 years later. We have in our Dillion Asher genealogy the birthdates and death dates of most of these people. Standing l-r: Florence Asher; Benjamin Miniard Ingram Brock; his wife, Mollie Asher; unknown; unknown; unknown; unknown; Wilkerson Asher; unknown; Carlo Brittain Asher (in hat, coat, and tie); and unknown. Sitting, l-r: Unknown; Elizabeth Henderickson; Elizabeth's son, John "Chigger" Asher; unknown; another son, "Bad" Jack Asher; and Martha Asher, daughter of Chigger. Any help identifying the boys in front would be appreciated.
