Ford Cassingham was born about 1824 in Muskingum County, Ohio. He is the son of Thomas Cassingham (Sr.) and Phoebe Ford. He may have died 19 Jun 1891 at about age 65 in Missouri.
On 23 Dec 1855, he married Jane Jones in Muskingum County, Ohio. She is the daughter of Abraham Jones and Elmer. She was born Nov 1834 in Ohio.
Children of Ford Cassingham and Jane Jones:
Ford: Birth from the 1860 census (La Harpe, Hancock, IL. p. 1008).
Jane: Birth from the 1860 census (La Harpe, Hancock, IL. p. 1008).
Phebe & Bertha: Deaths deduced from the fact that neither is listed with the family in the 1870 census (La Harpe, Hancock, IL. p. 16).
Lyman: Marriage from the 1910 census (Elkton, Teller, CO p.2) which indicated that Lyman had been married for 27 years.
The individuals in this family appear in the following census listings.
What's In A Name?
[Part of the fun of genealogy is observing the names people come up with for their children.]
By the 5th and 6th children, Ford had turned to naming his children after important political figures. One has to wonder if Ulysses S. Cassingham found it uncomfortable bearing that name in Missouri.
We are actively
seeking more information on the individuals listed here (and their descendants).
