About Benjamin "Ben" Ashell
Per Anne's great-nephew Dave E. Herron:
They lived in Kirksville, Mo. at my earliest recollection where Ben owned a retail store (Women's wear, I think). They had two children: Joan and Edward. Eddie as he was called was/is about 2-3 years older than I, and Joan was about 3-4 years older than Eddie. This would make Joan about 3 years younger than Margie. I recall that the Ashells went out of business in Kirksville, but it seems that it was about the time that both of their children were leaving the nest. I recall that Eddie wanted to become a musician (trumpet player} which didn't sit too well with his dad, but I don't have any idea what happened to them. Anne and Lottie seemed to be very close, as sisters are wont to be.
