I hope you’ve found this page easily. If you are a reader of my blog for my Jacques/Jaques/Archuleta posts, you are welcome to stay and read further but I’ve created this page to collaborate with others to try and solve some of the Ashworth mystery. Sarah “Sallie” Ashworth is my Grandma Flora’s grandmother. This will be an attempt to put together the information we know, discuss what we might be able to find and added documents and pictures. I am adding a photograph of Willa Adkins, her daughter, as I do not have a photograph of Sarah.
I think Verna, another Ashworth descendant, had a wonderful idea. I think we should address the list of people who were included as Henderson Ashworth’s heirs and how they might relate to Henderson Ashworth. I am adding the information given to me by my grandmother. I was given everything my grandmother ever wrote about her family so I will upload as we go.
On the list of heirs for Henderson Ashworth were Flora (Grandma), Ovola (her sister) Henry Carter Burgess (their dad), Richard Adkins (their grandfather).
Now for the first clue:
Verna said, “Now, the Orlanda Belle Griffin mentioned in Winfree as an heir of Henderson, was also named Smith. Born in 1868 in Texas, married a Black, then a Griffin. Died 1 April 1940 in McCurtain Co, Oklahoma.”
So I think that is where we should start, for now. Let’s see what we can accomplish.
