Father*William Gould2
Mother*Martha Pritt3 b. c 1815, d. a 1870

Children of Ashley Wesley "Ash" Wilfong and Elizabeth P. "Bettie" Napier

     Verbatim, From "The History of Upshur County West Virginia", by W. B. Cutright, quote: "Ashley Wesley Wilfong, a farmer in the Union District, was born December 1, 1847, son of Henry Wilfong and Martha Pritt. grandson of Henry Wilfong and the great grandson of John Wilfong. Legend has it that John Wilfong, the great grandfather of the Wilfong family, when very young, was taken, raised and started into life by a German of Bath County, Va., and through gratification of an eccentricity of this German, who raised the boy, he was named, or rather, re-named, Wilfong, and what his original family name was, his descendants here do not know.

The Wilfongs came to Upshur County in 1830, and settled on Big Sand Run, on which is known as the Day farm. The subject of this sketch [Ashley] was born in Meade District; was raised in Washington District and educated there. He was raised a farmer and is now owner of 112 acres of land on Little Sand Run. He devotes his time and attention to the handling and raising of livestock. He married Elizabeth Napier, daughter of Richard A. Napier and Nancy Elleton, natives of Albermarle County, June 13, 1871. Children: Maggie Bird, James A Garfield, John Day, and Rebecca, wife of Bud Simon.

Mr. Wilfong was a soldier of Company F, 17th West Virginia Infantry, enlisting September 7, 1864, and being mustered out in 1865. During his services he captured Lieutenant Long on Birch River alone. His duty as a soldier made him a scout in Nicholas, Webster and Braxton Counties. He is a pensioner of the United States."21,22 Sue Wilfong: Lillie Mae Wilfong was not the real daughter of Ashley and Bettie. She was known as "Toots" when I was a kid and the story was that she was left by a band of gypsies and Grandpa Ashley took her in and raised her. When the estate of Ashley was divided it went to Maggie, Rebecca, John Day, and Garfield who split his inheritance with Toots. There is a story that Ashley's grandparents were adopted by a German family named Wilfong, and that their real name was Gould. This remains to be proven. Memo from Jeanne-David Ours:

I've searched for the microfiche copies of Grandfather Ashley's induction and discharge papers from the Civil War without success. We did find David's notes taken at the National Archives, where an 1890 Pensioners' Roll had him as Ashley Willfong (note 2 L's). Military records had him both as Ashly Wilfawn, Co. F 17th WV Infantry, and also Ashley Willfawn. His enlistment papers were certified as Ashly Wilfong by a Capt. James Evans at Grafton, WV on September 3, 1864 and mustered out on June 30, 1865. He was apparently in a Post Hospital in Clarksburg WV from November 4, 1864 through December ??, 1864. Mr. Wilfong was of German descent. His mother was Martha Pritt. Mr. Wilfong enlisted in Company F., of the 17th W. Va. Was in many skirmishes. Served under Kelly, Sherman, and Sheriden. Was mustered out at the close of the war at Wheeling.

His wife, Elizabeth Napier, was born in Albermarle County, January 8, 1848. Her people came from England.

Except for the eight years prior to 1881, they have lived in Upshur County. In the 64 years of their marriage there have been no deaths in their immediate family. They still reside at Overhill and Mr. Wilfong comes to Buckhannon at least once a week to transact business.

All of the Wilfongs and Napiers, with the exception of Ashley Wilfong and Tobe Napier, a brother of Mrs. Wilfong, were for the South. Mr. Ashley Wilfong had four nephews, older than he, who were in the Union Army: Samuel, who was in the 3rd W. Va. Inf; George, 10th W. Va. Inf; and John and Dan in the 3rd Va. Calvr. They all enlisted at Buckhannon.23 Mr. Wilfong was born at Bull Run, December 11, 1847. His mother came from New England. He was married to Elizabeth Napier at Sand Run, Jun 13, 1871 by Joseph Howser, a Dunkard minister. They have four children, Mrs. Maggie Westfall, James A. Garfield, John Day, and Mrs. Becky Jane Simmons.

During Imboden's raid, in 183, he hid with his people in a thicked above Grassy Run.

Mr. Wilfong volunteered at Grafton and was sworn in September 19, 1863, before he was 16, by Colonel George Latham. He belonged to the 17th W. Va. Six of the companies were put under Sherman. The only important battle in which he participated was at Winchester. Mr. Wilfong was shot twice by bushwhackers, but was never seriously wounded.

He is one of the ten surviving Civil War veterans in Upshur County.

Note: from personal interview with Mr. Wilfong. Interviewer unknown.23 In a newspaper article from the Buckhannon Delta and Knight Errant, dated July 3, 1913: "The old soldiers from the county who are attending the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, are Ashley Wilfong...et al".22 Ashley Wesley "Ash" Wilfong was also known as Ashla Wilfong.15 Ashley Wesley "Ash" Wilfong was also known as Ashley Pritt.24 Mr. Wilfong was a soldier of Company F, 17th West Virginia Infantry, enlisting September 7, 1864, and being mustered out in 1865. He captured Lieutenant Long on Birch River alone.

During his services, his duty as a soldier made him a scout in Nicholas, Webster and Braxton Counties. He is a pensioner of the United States.4 Ashley Wesley "Ash" Wilfong was also known as Ashley W. Willfong.1 He appeared on the 1860 Federal Census of Upshur, West Virginia, in the household of Henry Wilfong [Jr.] and Martha Pritt, his step-father and mother.3 Ashley Wesley "Ash" Wilfong began military service on 7 September 1863 Co.

Children of Lillie Mae "Toots" Sites and Walter Garland Bailey

     Gllendoline Ruth "Sue" Wilfong: Lillie Mae Wilfong was not the real daughter of Ashley and Bettie. She was known as "Toots" when I was a kid and the story was that she was left by a band of gypsies and Grandpa Ashley took her in and raised her. When the estate of Ashley was divided it went to Maggie, Rebecca, John Day, and Garfield who split his inheritance with Toots.

[note from John Teets]: It can be seen in the 1910 Census for Upshur County, where Lillie Mae is shown as a boarder, that her real name was Lillie Mae Sites, born c1900.10 Her name was legally changed to Lillie May "Toots" Wilfong.8 She appeared on the 1910 Federal Census of Upshur, West Virginia, in the household of her parents, Ashley Wesley "Ash" Wilfong and Elizabeth P.
