CASSINGHAMS in America

Jane Cassingham is one of our Mystery Kin.
She and her parents 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 Cassingham line and the John Cassingham lline, we feel certain one exists.
If you have any information on Jane or her descendants please email me.
