There is no H in Asahel Bronson's name. This mistake was originally due to the use in genealogies on of a census record from Kingston, New York, which was in fact the record for someone else.

The correct census entry for 1870 for Asahel Bronson is in Marion, Green, Pennsylvania, p. 20, where he is listed as a boader in the household of Hanna Brooks, as Bronson, A, age 76, M, W, Minister, born Connecticut. Presbyterian denominational records confirm that it was in that area where he lived at the time.
