      Thomas Jr's wife is only been known as Elizabeth 'Betty' LNUnk. I have a copy of his son Henry's son Daniel's Journal which lists all 5 sons of Thomas Jr and Betty.

      There is ANOTHER Thomas Ashby born abt 1722 [Stafford Co] did marry a Mary Ann [not Elizabeth] McCullough with dates you have for the above Mary Elizabeth McCullough. So I am thinking some folks got mixed up, easily can happen.
      Two Thomas' and one is Mary Ann, other is Elizabeth 'Betty' and folks have just combined the Mary Elizabeth McCullough to be Elizabeth 'Betty'.
