CASSINGHAMS in America

Corbett Wills is one of our Mystery Kin.
His great-grandparents (John and Elizabeth Cassingham) seem to have arrived in the U.S. between 1840-1843 in a second migration of Cassinghams. They settled in Coshocton County, Ohio (a county adjacent to Muskingum County where Thomas and his family settled in 1818).
Though we have not yet been able to prove a relationship between the Thomas Cassinghams and the John Cassinghams, we feel certain one exists.

Corbett Wills is the son of Margaret Adams and Richard P. Wills. He was born in Jun 1893 in Ohio. He died 14 May 1964 at age 70 in Coshocton, Coshocton, Ohio.

Child of Corbett Wills:

  1. Clifton Wills was born 10 Apr 1916 in Ohio. He died 11 Apr 1989 -- one day after his 73rd birthday -- in Conesville, Coshocton, Ohio.
