You're right. I must have had a melt down when I sent the message. my grand father was the son of William Manning Cason and Lucy Ellen Eavenson. I have pictures of him (Thomas Edward Cason). My cousins have told me that Thomas Edward and his sister Florence were brought to Ok as children without Lucy. I cannot get confirmation about that or why. I did have one account that Wiullliam Manning was a prisioner from Gettysburg and died of smallpox in 1854. Do you have any more information?
