Charles & Margaret (Challoner) Asbury

Settler of township lots: Lots 2 & 3, Concession 8

Dates of residency: 1891 - 1901

Interesting facts:

From Gower, Fran and Marnie Brethour.  Facts and Fables of Oxtongue Lake, as submitted by A. Asbury:

Charles Asbury and his wife, Margaret, both originally of the town of Chester in Cheshire, England, and their family of seven children settled on Lots 2 & 3, Concession 8, McClintock Twp. in 1891.  These lots are located beyond the south end of Oxtongue Lake.  He sold this property to his son, James, in August 1901.  It is possible that James never lived there, as John Carlton was assessed taxes for this property in 1901.  Charles and some of the family went to Pelee Island to live.  James and his brother Tom stayed at Dwight.

His children were Margaret-Elizabeth, Mary-Jannet, Rhoda, Charles, James, Thomas and Victor.
