Mystery Person Joe Kazan ??

+6 votes
I have a family record that lists a sister as Mrs. Joe Kazan.   The time period would be between 1800 and 1890.   The location would be Pennsylvania or Michigan afaik.   I am having no luck finding ANY Kazan's.

Any ideas, opinions, thoughts, or humorous anecdotes will be welcome.

If you open the PDF attached to the profile you can see the perplexing item in it's natural state.

    I found Joseph Cason, with wife Annette born in Pennsylvania, in several census records from Indiana:

    "United States Census, 1860", database with images, FamilySearch ( : 13 December 2017), Joseph F Cason, 1860.

    "United States Census, 1870," database with images, FamilySearch ( : 12 April 2016), Joseph T Cason, Indiana, United States; citing p. 3, family 19, NARA microfilm publication M593 (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.); FHL microfilm 545,825.

    "United States Census, 1880," database with images, FamilySearch ( : 7 September 2017), Joseph T Casen, Walker, Jasper, Indiana, United States; citing enumeration district ED 59, sheet 265A, NARA microfilm publication T9 (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.), roll 0286; FHL microfilm 1,254,286.

    That's probably not the right Joseph. His wife Annette's parents were born in Vermont and New Hampshire. But the 1880 census shows that Mary Ann Snodgrass's parents were born in Pennsylvania:
