Ashley history:

Settlement of this area
One of the first settlers in the Delaware County area was William Sharp. William Sharp was born in Virginia. In 1809, he lived near Norton for three or four years. He then joined the army and headed north to Sandusky, Ohio. In 1814, after the war he married Sarah-Boyd. She was adopted by John Duncan. He built a cabin for his wife. William Sharp could not resist going to hunt. He knew the Native American's languages. He died in 1861 and is buried at the Marlboro Cemetery. Around when Sharp arrived in Norton, Henry Foust came and married May Olds. Her father's name was Confort. He was probably the first settler in the Windsors Corners area. Others gradually moved there. There were still many Native Americans in the area. The Native Americans were all gone from Delaware County by the middle of the 1830s.
This information was researched and written by four third grade students at Buckeye Valley East Elementary School in Ashley, Ohio. It was done as part of a study of the history of Ashley, Ohio.
