He married three times. He married Molly French 1747. (Additional notes for Molly French(194)) He married Hannah Cilley. (Additional notes for Hannah Cilley(195)) DAR Patriot index records her name as Cinlley. She had seven children with Moses Cass.
He married Sarah Ring. (Additional notes for Sarah Ring(196)) Sarah's maiden name was Ring, 1st marriage - Berry, 2nd marriage - Cass. The DAR Patriot index shows that Moses served as a private in NH forces for The Revolutionary War. He was supposed to have served for 3 years in Colonel Alexander Scammels Regiment. He is not shown in town or state records, but descendants applied for DAR. Capt. James Gray's Co., Col. Scammell's NH Regiment, according to a DAR application.
1st marriage - Molly French - 1 child; 2nd marriage - Hannah Cilley - 7 children; 3rd Marriage - Mrs. Sarah (Ring) Berry - 8 children. The DAR Patriot Index shows that Moses served as a Pvt. for NH. It also shows Hannah Cilley's name as Cinlley.
Note: This particular Moses, for purposes of this database, will be shown as a descendant of Joseph Cass and Phebe Nason. This is per research of Peter F. W. Case, in lieu of that of Dr. Donald Berry. Dr. Berry states that Moses is the son of Jonathan II and Tabitha Ring. This line contradicts some writers, who claim Moses was the son of Joseph Cass and Phebe Nason, as Jonathan II did not name a Moses in his will and there is no record of a Moses born to Jonathan II in the Vital Records. Further writers claim Moses was a brother of Jonathan who also settled in Sanbornton. One writer was Delysle Cass. Runnell's History of Sanbornton, NH lists the names of his children, but per Vital Records, Jonathan and Samuel were oldest if Moses first lived in Kingston. -- There is a Moses Cass, son of Jonathan Cass, baptised in the Hampton Falls Church on 17 May 1729. This may be the source of the confusion. Perhaps there were two Moses' born the same year, or the listing in the History of Hampton Falls (author: Sanborn) is incorrect, or the original church record was incorrect.
