John Peter Cassingham was born 27 Jan 1814 in England. He is the son of Thomas Cassingham (Sr.) and Phoebe Ford. He died 15 Nov 1897 at the age of 83 and is buried at Winfrey Cemetery, Bosworth, Carroll, Missouri.
On 8 Mar 1836, he married Rebecca Robinson in Coshocton County, Ohio. Rebecca was born 18 Feb 1818 in Delaware and died 13 Jul 1882 at the age of 64. She is buried at Winfrey Cemetery, Bosworth, Carroll, Missouri.
Children of John Peter Cassingham and Rebecca Robinson:
According to Dick and Eleanor Weiss, Rebecca Robinson is actually Rebecca Bice, the daughter of John Nelson Bice and Mary Robinson. However, Rebecca's marriage record clearly lists her name as Robinson. But her father had re-married sometime before 1831 -- before she married John Cassingham. Is it possible that Rebecca, for whatever reason, was raised by her maternal grandparents and therefore was accustomed to using their last name as her own? If anyone has any thoughts on this I'd love to hear from you.
