My g.g.grandfather is as far back as I have got in tracing my roots.Want to know his parents' name.
gggrandfather's name (I think) was L.A.(Lloyd) Cassady. He ran a steam boat on the Arkansas River.According to Uncle Joe Cassady, he and his boat dissappeared.Cousin Tony Cassady said he was a steam boatsman till his death on the river around 1876. The Crawford Co. Arkansas 1870census lists his birthplace as Alabama. Can you shed any light on a connection?
My great,great grandfather married Ruth Bredwick,b.1842(in Arkansas),and had 3 childrenWilliam Henry(1863)Marion Calvin(1870) and Rosa(no date).He lived in Van Buren,Arkansas till his death,cause unknown.
My grandfather was Henry Julian b.Dec.6,1896 to William Henry. Grandpa had an identical twin brother, Calvin Jewel (I think ) was his name.My dad was Raymond Howard.
Will appreciate any help. I feel like one of these Cassadys is in my family line.
