Morgan marriage from Marshall S.

Lived with grandfather, Charles E. Tucker, Florence M. and son Irving R. at 1900 census in Yavapai, AZ.

Worked as a laborer in "Sheet metal"? in 1920 census, in AZ.

Jane Gunderman (daughter of Ashley Stelzriede) stated that Ashley's mother (Minnie Lila Gilbert) died during childbirth and that his father couldn't care for him so he went to live with "Grandma Tucker". This fact was confirmed by the 1900 census that lists Ashley in the same household as Florence and her husband Charles E. Tucker (his grandmother and her second or third husband). Other facts are that in the 1910 census Ashley resides with his grandparents at 6th and Ash in Tempe, and by 1915 he is housed in the Fort Grant State Reform School. It is about this time that Charles A. Stauffer becomes Ashley's guardian. Stauffer was a friend of the Stelzriede family, and by this time William A. had moved to San Francisco, and John A.W. to Los Angeles, C. A. Stauffer acted as the executor of Ashley's part of the estate, as Ashley was still a minor at that time and resided in Arizona. (from Darin Harshman)
