After his first wife's death in 1843, he remarried and moved to Yorkshire, Cattaraugus Co. until the 1861- 1864 timeframe when he homesteaded property in LaCrosse Co., Wisconsin. It does appear that Asahel in fact had 14 children (living) as was indicated on the Wisconsin Land Patent affidavit, 8 apparently with Betsey and 6 with Emeline H. (Harriet). .
By 1864, Asahel's 1864 Homestead documentation shows the family in LaCrosse County, Wisconsin. He died after 1880 probably in Farmington, LaCrosse County, Wisconsin.
