Does anyone have documentary or other reliable evidence of the origin of the Cashdollar name?

I've heard from Germany, Scotland, but no evidence.

Northern & Southern Clans of Cashdollar - Connection?

Surnames: Cashdollar
It appears that the name has evolved from several different countries and roots. The federal census shows the roots of NY & PA Cashdollars as from Ireland and Germany. However, the oldest family stories my branch of Cashdollars relate is that we (our NC & TN clan) came to America from Scotland and to Scotland from England. I have found no evidence of connections between the PA/NY & the NC/TN clans but some stories relate a possible Connecticut connection.

Anyone have any evidence of connections between the northern NY/PA Cashdollars and the southern NC/TN clan?

Our southern clan's tradition is that Cash is an English variant of Cass. They are said to have settled around Dollar in Clackmannan Scotland and the Cash Dollar name was later shortened to Cashdollar.

I'm descended from Alexander Cashdollar. I'm his GGGG-grandaughter. I'm the GGG-grandaughter of Marietta Cashdollar who married Montgomery. He's a direct descendant of Richard Gist and Zipporah Murray. Zipporah Murray is a direct descendant in the 26 generation down from Diarmid MacDuibhn b 982 in Dumbartonshire, Scotland. He married Grain O'Neil an Irish woman. Zipporah Murray is a descendant of Alfred "The Great" 1st King of England b 849 in Wantage, Birkshire, Englandand Queen Ealhswith of Mercia. My sister said she is Welch. Christopher Richard Gist, Richard Gist's father was married to Edith Cromwell, the sister of Oliver Cromwell. I know the Cashdollars are Scots by way of England, possibly Wales and France. I'm waiting on genealogy papers from my sister and the book "Tennessee Cousins" which might mention the Cashdollars. I will contact you when or if I have any proof. Cathy Martin

I forgot, I was going to ask if you could share any Cashdollar information from Samuel Alexander, the son of Alexander Cashdollar. I have information from Samuel down but not from Alexander up. Thank You Cathy Martin. You can e-mail me anytime. G_f_alice2@hotmail.com.

My last name is Cashdollar and it came from my ancestors that date back to the vikings Cashdollar was orinally Castillo im sure you have all read about the Castillos in history books. It all comes from northern Italy. Well anyways when the war was going on some of the Castillo's came to America and much like everyone else my ancestors changed their names so they wouldn't get sent back to Italy.

Tremendous. Do you have documentation reflecting this information or is this a product of an oral history. Thank you.

The following is from:

Don Yoder, "Problems and Resources in Pennsylvania German Genealogical Research." The Pennsylvania Genealogical Magazine, vol 31 nbr 1, 1979.

In this, he rather casually mentions as an illustration of some point he was making (I forget which) that the name Cashdollar comes from the German Kirschthaler.

That's the only reference I know of. I have read other people that claim the origin of Cashdollars in Scotland, England, Denmark and other places.

I have found Kirschthalers in Bavaria and in New York (search at the LDS web site). I have found no connection between any of these and Cashdollars.

Hope this helps, but it probably just adds to our mutual confusion.
