CHURCH REGISTER - METHODIST EPISCOPAL CHURCH SOUTH
ASHBY, TEXAS

 


According to Historic Matagorda County, Ashby is located in the G. J. Williams League on FM 1095 about 10 miles south of SH 35 at the confluence of Wilson and Tres Palacios Creeks, west of the Colorado River. Captain W. W. Moore established a Methodist Church at Ashby, giving two acres of land for a church and cemetery. The register of the Ashby Methodist Church lists the names of many early settlers. There were 54 members listed on the church roll when the church was destroyed by fire in 1902.
