Surnames: Cassity, Adams, Dyer
I am looking for information on ELIZABETH ADAMS and her husband LEANDER CASSITY. They appear to have lived in Morgan County in the 1850's and their birthdates would be somewhere around 1834, possibly. LEANDER died ca 1911. One of their children, FANNIE CASSITY (b. May 28, 1854, d. October 31, 1941) m. Henry Lewis Dyer. Other Cassity children were: SARA ELIZABETH CASSITY, m. ___ Davis; ELLA CASSITY, m. _____Spence(r?); ALICE CASSITY, m. ___ Harris; BRUCE CASSITY, TOM CASSITY, HARLAN CASSITY. LEANDER was a farmer. I don't know if they are listed in the 1850 Morgan Co. Census. If anyone has any information that might help, I would appreciate it
