Arnold Cassel Info

Little is known in regards to Arnold Cassel, brother of Johannes. For a couple years he lived with his brother in Germantown, where he received his naturalization papers in 1691. He then set out for free land in western Pennsylvania, in what is believed to be in the area that is now Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It was rumored that he was killed by the Indians, and nothing more was heard from him.

hi jeff, you seem to know a lot about the cassel family i have been searching fo two years for any kind of info. myself. my grandfather was james luther cassel born in 1872, don't know where but he he moved to cass county indiana in 1889 (approx)from madison county, indiana. i do know he had realitives in pa. because my aunts(his daughters) used to go visit them.
i know nothing about his parents or siblings, there is no mention of them in any family bible. on 12-24-1894 he married adria mcdowell in cass coutyand they had 3 children ollie leo born 6-10-1895 (my father)
ruth ann born 5-26-1897 and florence eleanor born 9-6-1900. I wish i would have had to forthought to ask questions befor everyone had passed away. but i didn't even think about a family tree until 2 years ago, and ahave hit nothing but dead ends where my grandfathers past is concerened. i have his obit and his marriage lic. app. but no help there. any little bit of info would be appreciated so much. thank you jackie cassel

Jackie ...

I'll dig around and see what I can find out for you. Cassel family members use to get together once a year in Pennsylvania and share information in an attempt to put together the entire tree. They only get together every 2-or-3 years now. I've received a lot of information from the gatherings, I'll dig it out and see what I might be capable of finding. Like yourself ... I also have a gap in the mid-1800's that I can not fill. Jeff Cassel

Jeff, your info on the extended Cassel background is fascinating. Do you know anything about family members who left PA and went west?

I know my Henry Cassel (killed in the battle of Vicksburg during the Civil War) was from Pennsylvania, and was born about 1822, but have never been able to trace who his parents were or why he left PA. He married Catherine Bretz, a granddaughter of Abraham Cassel (1/20/1764) and Catherine Oberholtzer.

There is a theory that Henry and Catherine stemmed from different sons of Isaac Cassel(1746-1801), son of Julius the Mennonite minister.

Have I made myself totally obscure? :)
Any thoughts are appreciated.

Thanks,
Kristin Yates

Kristin ...

Unfortunately I'm not going to be much help here. Don't know much about this stem of the tree. Correct, Issac Cassel was the son of Julius the Mennonite minister. Julius' children were as follows ... John (1730-1803), Henry (died young), Hubert (1733-?), Issac (1746-1801), Joseph (died young), Mary (1719-1793), Catherine (1759-1830), Barbara (?-1792). Issac Cassel married Barbara Detwiler. I have no records indicating what children Issac and Barbara had. So I can't fill in the blanks. Sorry.

In regard to leaving PA. Once again, sorry! My attempts are to fill in the stems and then figure out where the tree limbs went. I've done this a little backwards I guess. I started as far back in the past as I could go and working towards the present.

Good luck. If I run across anything remotely related to lineage I will pass the information onto you.

Henry Cassel/Cassill was the son of Yelles, and the grandson of Hupert, GGson of Abraham. Henry (born in 1759) left Pa for Ross County Ohio. They resided in Vinton County Ohio.

Dear Jeri: My maiden name is Cassill. I keep running across Henry Cassell/Cassill in my research as well - I would love to hear from you and try to figure out what the relation is.

Thanks.
