The basic source for the chronology of the first generation is John Aspley pension application file, Revolutionary War Pension and Bounty-Land-Warrant Application Files, microfilm M804, roll 84 (Washington: National Archives). In the next generation, Samuel’s chronology is established by the obituary written by G. W. Gillmore, St. Louis Christian Advocate, St. Louis, Mo., 6 Aug. 1879, 6, col. 1. His first marriage license is in Sumner County Marriages (Loose Records), 18201829, microfilm 297, Tennessee State Library and Archives, Nashville [TSLA], but on Nancy’s dates of birth and death I have found no record more authoritative than Mabel Sarah (German) Chamberlain, membership application no. 763926, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, Washington, D. C. That she was the mother of Martha Isabelle Aspley is evidenced by Sumner County, Tennessee Land Records, 16:560-1, microfilm 112, TSLA.
