In 1860, James A. Biswell & family was in Jasper Twp along with many of the Wood, Morton, Asbell families. Curiously there is a Mary Morton, age 43 or 63, born in Virginia, that is living in the household. I have no idea who she might be. Elizabeth Asbill Biswell DID have an Aunt Mary Asbill, sister to her father Thomas J. Asbill. She might have been close to this age but she is said to have married a Johnson and was born in Kentucky. There is also the possibility that Thomas J. Asbill had no sister at all.
Ashley Biswell served in the 2nd Cherokee Mounted Rifles under Gen. Stand Watie during the Civil War.
