I descend from Andrew Cage born 1806/07 who lived in Athens Co Ohio in 1830, where he had William Cage in 1836. He married Elizabeth Batterton in Indiana. My direct line was his daughter, Elizabeth born 1838, married Eli Shepherd in Danville Illinois on 11 April 1858. Elizabeth Batterton was his 2nd wife. His first wife died about 1842 in Ohio. He was prob. born in Va, but it may have been in Pa. I know that he and John of Ind. were related but I don't know how, possibly brothers or 1st cousins.
His son, William born 1836, was in a prison in Danville for awhile, for killing a soldier. My Grandfather spoke of him and how they read the Sunday Paper in William's cell when he visited him.
Andrew died in Illinois between 1860-1870. Elizabeth took the children back to Indiana, with the exception of Elizabeth and her sister Catherine who married a man named "Delay".
I think Andrew had brothers named Martin and James. They may have been children of John Cage and Elizabeth Haines of Va.
I hope this will be of help. Wanda Buckner Rbuck98008@aol.com
