Att. William Woodcock, Clk."

Dillon Asher, born 5 Oct 1774 in VA, moved into the mountains of KYwith the first settlers. He got into a dispute with Evan Shelby,brother of Kentucky's first governor, over a piece of land near whatis Pineville. Warned by an Indian friend that Shelby was going to havehim killed, Dillon fled toward the present Harlan County, where heclaimed land and named it after his Indian friend, Red Bird. Thatsettlement and creek still bear the name. Some of his numerouschildren were: Dillon, Jr., Robert, John, Sally, Pug, Peggy,Wilkerson, Polly, Betsey, Jackson Davis, Preston, James Farmer,Josiah, China, Chester, Andrew Jackson, and William.

Dillion lived near Pineville soon after coming to Kentucky fromTennessee. He was keeper of the toll gate which was established nearPineville in 1795. Later he moved near the head of Red Bird Riverwhere he reared a large family. According to a historical highwaymarker nearby, the log cabin was first build before 1800. Near thecabin is the Asher family cemetery where he and many members of hisfamily are buried.

Augustus Asher - June 23, 1898.
My grandfather, Dillon Asher, came from Tennessee to Ford ofCumberlands in 1800, moved to Red Bird. His wife was Sally Davis.Their children: Blevins, Robert, John, Ira (Roberts), "Pug" (HenrySizemore). There were others, I do not remember them. By Miss Davis,his wife's sister, he had children that took the name of Asher asfollows: Jackson, Wilkerson, and Joshia who still lives and I think,Preston Asher was their brother. Bige, Matt, Jackson, Hugh, Tom andDillon Asher are sons of Jackson. These are the men that have becomeso wealthy. All are worth more than Bige and he is probably worth 25,000 dollars. Jack, said to be worth $300,000, Matt, $200,000, Tomlives at Masiota, worth $3000,000. Hugh lives at Pineville, alsoJack, though they have houses near Lexington. Matt, Jack and Hughwere famous lumbermen who started booming logs on the Kentucky Riverat Ford; they made big money. Their sisters are Mrs. Martha Morgan;Charity Howard; Puss, Bige Morgan of Sexton; Polly Gibson.

RED BIRD
The Indian chief for whom Red Bird Creek in Clay County was namedwas probably a Cherokee from Tennessee or North Carolina. Like othersof his race, he was a great hunter and allured by the game in thisremote region he finally took up his residence on the creek that bearshis name at the mouth of Jack's Creek in this county. He came to hisdeath by the avarice of the "pale face." There lived with him acrippled Indian named Willie. This man dressed the skins which RedBird brought to their wigwam and looked after the culinary departmentof their house. Some hunters from North Carolina, greedy andunscrupulous, came to the wigwam and murdered Willie. They thensecreted themselves and awaited the return of the brave chief who hadlong before buried his tomahawk and for years had been living in peacewith the white man, and as he approached his crude castle the bulletof an assassin laid him in the dust. They threw his body into a holeof water nearaby which is still called "Willie's Hole," and from whichJohn Gilbert and others took him and buried him. One tradition isthat he was sitting on the bank of a creek fishing when he was shotand that he fell into the creek.
