The Ashbaugh Family Reunions 2003
Reunions Sponsored By
Decendants of Johann Heinrich Eschbach
There are twon known reunions ocurring this year during the summer of 2003. Although these reunions
were intitiated by different descendants of our immagrant ancestor Johann Heinrich
Eschbach, these reunions are open to all of those who can trace their family heritage
through our immagrant ancestor. One of these reunions are held in Ohio each year nmd the other in Western Pennsylvania.

OHIO - In September of 1738, Johann Heinrich Eschbach an immagrant from Germany
arrived in the port city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania aboard the ship "Winter Galley".
He settled in Mt. Joy Township. After his arrival here he became known as Henry Ashbaugh.
His son, Johann (John) in the year 1799 went to Fairfield County, Ohio, built a log cabin
and planted his crops. He returned to Pennsylvania and the following year, 1800, departed
Pennsylvania with his family to settle in Rush Creek, Fairfield County, Ohio. From here
his descendants have settled throughout the United States and Canada.
It was one of the descandants of John's children who started the family reunion in Fairfield
County and on Saturday, August 9, 2003 at Kachelmacher Park in Logan, Ohio, we'll be keeping
that tradition alive by once again celebrating our family reunion. Kachelmacher Park is just
south of US 33 on SR 93. We will meet for dinner at 12 noon ("coverd dish" or "put luck")
and the place is ours until ??. Of course there will be some of us who gather before the
dinner meeting time to discuss our genealogies and just catch up un events in the family
and getting better aquainted with our cousins. There will be games and other activities for
all. Some of us will be meeting on Sunday as well to worship together as a family.
Pennsylvania - This reunion was started by The family of Custer Ashbaugh son of David B. Ashbaugh
he is the son of Alexander Ashbaugh and he is the son of Andrew Ashbaugh, son of Johann Heinrich Eschbach.
It will be Sept. 14, 2003 at Northmoreland Park at Pav. 2. It is the County
Park in Westmoreland Co., Pennsylvania. It is real easy to find. If anyone wants directions to it they can
reach me at Betty Ashbaugh Leap at firstname.lastname@example.org
Remember we invite all Ashbaughs to come. We have a cover dish and whatever anyone wants
to bring but I will say that there is always a wide range of food. We hope that many of the
family can make it this year.
