  1. Mrs. Ashworth’s father was my great great grandmother’s brother. I descend from Emma Buxton, who married Albert Cline. I wish I had known of Mrs. Ashworth, as I would have lived to share information of her ancestry and perhaps gain some as well. I hope some of her family will contact me and have an interest in the Buxton family history. My sincerest condolences.

    Funeral Director – please forward my contact information to the family.
