My family history event for January 11th is the birth of Ernest Casler Ash (Ernest Castler Ash) on January 11th 1886 in Ontario, Canada. His parents were Clayton Fletcher Ash (known as Fred) and Victoria Ann Scott. Ernest is not one of my own biological relatives. He was the paternal grandfather of my deceased Canadian 1st cousin, James Murray Ash jr. (1943-2011). My other Canadian relatives are beginning to be interested in family history so we are collaborating on their research.
