History of Asay, Utah
Taken from the Utah Place Names. (Links Added)

ASAY

Asay (Garfield) was a five and one-half miles south of present-day Hatch where Asay Creek crosses US-89. It was first settled in 1872 by Joseph Asay and his wife Sarah Ann, and family. Joseph was the first postmaster in Asay and he also ran a small store. In 1880 the communties of Asay, Johnson, and Castle were absorbed and moved closer to Hatch (known earlier as Hatchtown). The town of Asay perished in the late 1890s when a nearby sawmill burned down.
