Can't find in 1920 census: can't find parents. Brother Adolphus is in mechanics school in Lake County, Illinois. Youngest brother Robert is living with married sister Lucy Sitterle and family in Highland County, OH. Father Jeptha was still living in 1939 when he is named as a surviving grandfather of Lucy's son Frank Sitterle. A 1916 Columbus city directory lists T Jeptha Asher as a sawmaker at 96 Randolph St. An obituary from Fayette County, OH [Ancestry.com] gives Thomas Jeptha Asher's death date as 3 Oct 1949. So where was he in 1920? In 1920 we find a Thomas J. Asher, widowed, age 58, a renter living in Columbus Ward 9, Franklin County, Ohio, living alone at 285 Water Street and working as a laborer with a can factory. But there is no listing for a Rachel or a Louise Asher in the surrounding area or, as a matter of fact, anywhere in the US.
