Children with Mary MICHAELS born in PA:
Sources differ as to who mothered whom, so the disputed children are duplicated in the listing.

  4.  David W. ASKEY, b. 28 Jun 1855; d. 5 Sep 1877

John was obviously names for the celebrated "Pathfinder," Gen. John Charles FREMONT (1813-1890).

Secondary sources show them with twins, Curtin C. ASKEY and Harry C. ASKEY, born 1 Sep 1861, but the censuses indicate just one child, Henry Curtin C. ASKEY, born on that date.
