Ashmores of Waterford

My great-2-grandmother Elizabeth Ashmore married Aaron Zimber in 1880 in Waterford City and died in 1894.

Her father John Daniel Ashmore was a house painter and was born in Waterford City.  His first wife Ellen Pope died in 1873.

In 1901 he lived in Knocknacrohy, Kilmeadan, Co. Waterford with his second wife Elizabeth and his 8 year old grand-daughter Ethel Lian Wilson.  His son James (also a house painter), his wife Kate and daughters Mary and Johanna live nearby in Curraghmore, Portlaw, Co. Waterford at this time.

His second wife Elizabeth died in 1905 in Curraghmore and in 1911 he is living there with James and family.  John died in 1913.

John's father was a James Ashmore who may be the son of Daniel Ashmore a painter who is listed in Pigotts 1824 directory in Peter Street, Waterford City.
