Looking for descendants of James A. Cassell/Cassel/Cossel. His marriage to Martha Elizabeth Delana Bradford Tifft produced at least two daughters, Anna Bell and Belreath/Beatrice/?. An old history of the Mayflower Bradfords noted that Anna married a "Mr Johnson."

Last known residence of James was Cherokee Co., Kansas.Born ca 1830, son of John Franklin Cassel/Cossel and Anna Weeks; probably died 1887-1888. Lived in Coles Co., Illinois prior to the Civil War.

Martha's first marriage was to Oliver Perry Tifft/Tefft. She usually went by the name Lizzy or Elizabeth. Her son George Thomas Tifft was sometimes erroneously recorded with his stepfather's surname.

This looks very promising, though if it is our girl I am sorry she died so young. Illinois doesn't seem to have a death record for her, but it gives me somewhere to start. The location of the cemetery is not far from where the family started in Charleston, IL.

Thanks so much.

Thanks so much, but it is the wrong family unfortunately. One would think the name was at least a bit unusual. :-(
