Known as the Samuel Longwell Place in 1875, it was owned by Wells Ashley and wife Mary Wilson in 1899. [The Directory shows Wells on R 4 location in 1899 which is the house at the top of Ashley Hill that was owned by Lila & Ken Allen in the 1950s-1970s. It also shows Stert E. in that location so there may be an error in the directory] This was one of the several farms that were part of James A. McConnell's Jamac Farms group in the 1930s. HIs sister Carrie McConnell and her husband Henry Beardslee, lived there at one time and ran the chicken farm for him. Mollie Coleman and Frank Beardslee lived there from prior to 1939 until after 1944. The house is in Sullivan and the barn in Rutland township.

Neighborhood lore tells of the Ashley brothers, Sterne who lived at the top of Ashley Hill and Wells who lived in the valley below, calling back and forth through the acoustic tunnel created by the flowing hill structure. One would call "You come up and how and I'll come down and mow."
