Launa Norma Senter is one of our Mystery Kin.
Her great-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.

Launa Norma Senter is the daughter of Estella Wills and Cleveland Ward Senter. She was born 27/29 Mar 1902 in Millfork, Virginia, Coshocton, Ohio. She died 24 Apr 1999 at age 97 in Coshocton, Coshocton, Ohio. She was buried 27 Apr 1999 at South Lawn Cemetery, Coshocton, Coshocton, Ohio.

On 22 Jul 1922, she married Russell Dewey Cross. He is the son of Ulysses Grant Cross and Mary Zetta Clark. He was born 15/26 May 1898 Roscoe, Coshocton, Ohio. He died 27/29 Jul 1974 at age 76 in Coshocton, Coshocton, Ohio. He was buried 30 Jul 1974 at South Lawn Cemetery, Coshocton, Coshocton, Ohio.
