CASSINGHAMS in America

Estella Wills is one of our Mystery Kin.
Her 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.

Estella Wills is the daughter of Margaret Adams and Richard P. Wills. Stella, as she was known, was born 27 Mar 1885 in Zanesville, Muskingum, Ohio. She died 3 Nov 1959 at age 74 in Coshocton, Coshocton, Ohio. She was buried 6 Nov 1959 at South Lawn Cemetery, Coshocton, Coshocton, Ohio.

On 14 Apr 1900, she married Cleveland Ward Senter in Coshocton, Coshocton, Ohio. He is the son of Horace Swift Senter (Jr.) and Almira M. Slaughter. He was born 30 Apr 1884 in Millfork, Virginia, Coshocton, Ohio. He died 4 Jul 1929 at age 45 in Coshocton, Coshocton, Ohio and is buried at South Lawn Cemetery, Coshocton, Coshocton, Ohio.
