Note: There are some who believe this Adam Ashbaugh to be John Adam Ashbaugh, a descendant of a Frederick Eschbach, different from our Johann Heinrich Eschbach. If these are correct, Frederick would have been 50 years old when this child was born. Traditions that I have received from both descendants of Johann and descendants of the Steiner families list this Adam as a descendant of Johann Heinrich and so he is included here with the realization that this information is in dispute and the listed descendants may not belong to the Johann Heinrich Eschbach family. There are some however who claim the Frederick is the brother of Johann Heinrich and if so he may be related in some other fashion. He probably resided in Adams or York County for a time, but probably reached manhood and moved prior to a taxation list showing him. He is mentioned in his father's estate.. Reportedly in family notes he was a soldier in the War of 1812. He was an early settler of Westmoreland County,Pa. as well as Armstrong County,Pa. By 1790 he was settled in Hempfield Twp., Westmoreland Co.,PA. By 1800 he was settled in Franklin Twp. and by 1810 he was settled in Armstrong Co., PA on a site which is now Kiskiminites Twp.
