Asliby, Benjamin S

Asliby, Benjamin S.

a minister in the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, was a native of Kentucky. Nothing definite remains of his early history other than his emigration to Missouri in 1818, being at the time about twenty years old. He was then a local preacher. In 1823 he entered the Missouri Conference. Between 1830 and 1834 he sustained a superannuated relation. He then located; and in 1845 he was readmitted into the active ranks, and thus remained until 1857, when declining strength obliged him again to become a superannuate. He died of epilepsy at the close of his last pulpit effort, Aug. 29, 1860. Mr. Ashby was a man of prayer, and a zealous, faithful preacher. See Minutes of Annual Conferences of the M. E. Church, South, 1860, p. 201.,
