  1. I’ve recently learned that I have an entire family that I never knew existed. Asher Bagley, Sr. was one of those family members…he is my 4th great-grandfather. I’m very interested in learning more about this newly-found family. I would very much like to connect with David James Hoss, Sr. who is noted as Asher’s 3rd great-grandson in this article. If anyone can help me to do so, I would greatly appreciate it. Contact info is Cori @ kohsamui2001@ymail.com.
    Thanks in advance.
