John Cassel Or John Cassell

John Cassel Or John Cassell

Surnames: Cassel, Cassell, Summers, Chitwood
I am looking for a John Cassel Born in Indiana, Mother and Father from KY. Married a Mary E. Mary and both parents are from KY.

He's in the 1880 United States Census Record. I have had this John as on with parents being Peter Cassel(whom is not from KY), but I believe this to be incorrect, if this was the same john the birth year would be the same, and he would not be married in two different census at the same time. so I am looking of the Kentucky Connection, and line.

John Cassel and Mary E. had 4 children.
I was told Mary was a Summers but I have yet to prove it.
Could this John be related?

One thing my family told me up until I was 6 was I can call my self Cassel or Cassell, Due to a family member changing the family name from Cassell to Cassel due to a family conflict over land, John was to buy William Grant Cassel Land when he went to war, for William when he got back, if he died they could keep it, but when he got back, the John took the land for him self, and took the money from grant, and choose not to return it. So the name was changed. Although I have not yet found john parents due to there being a lot of miss direction, people say Peter Cassel and martha chitwood are his parents, but if you look at the 1880 census you will note Parents are from KY not NC, and the ages are about 10 years's apart, and John if that is the case was born after the death of Peter Cassel. So the in my reseach I found the two john are not the same, just i have not yet found enough info, to find the right parents, it's some where in the family storie I believe, due to the name change, not every one know it, they assume it's the same person.

It's nice to find some thing you been searching for ages. Next hurdle George Cassel's Parents.

I will be interesting be cause there is at least 2 families with Geo Cassel & Mahala tout.. & the other pair are younger. 1850 means I may not find to many records straight away.

Hi! Was wondering if you had any information on Vincent Dent married to Catherine Cassell. I have the Dent line back to 1600s plus, and this Dent, I am sure is a branch that I wanted to connect to the tree.

Any help is appreciated.

Where were your Cassell's? Mine were in Ireland and Ontario. I am also doing a genealogy with George Lockhart and wife Emma Livingstone. She was PEI to New Brunswick and then west in Canada.
