Henry Dennis Kasson (b. 1841) & daughter Lydia (1875-1954) in NE

Posted: 28 Jul 2009 10:19AM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Kasson, DeMoss, Powell
looking for any information on the following people:

Lydia May Kasson (married name DeMoss)
Lydia's father: Henry Dennis Kasson
Lydia's mother: Matilda L. Powell (married names Kasson & Morgan)
Henry's father: Russell Kasson
Henry's mother: Eliza A. Henry (married name Kasson)

Lydia was my great-grandmother and it is assumed she was of Native American descent. This was not openly admitted "back then" though, so we know nothing of her true roots. That is why I am looking directly at her, and the generations that came just before her. I know, in speaking with my family, that she was also called "Lydie"... and I have also seen alternate spellings to her name, including Lida & Ida, while searching online (therefore I cannot verify these being legitimate)

Henry Dennis Kasson was Lydia's father, his second marriage was to Lydia's mother, Matilda L. Powell. I cannot find anything on Matilda, so I am just as actively looking at her. The only thing I have found was that Matilda remarried a Joseph Morgan after Henry's death.

Henry & Matilda were both born in Penn and moved to NE. Lydia was born and lived her life in NE, as does much of my family to this day.
