That makes sense. Do you know the source of the death date for Lucy Ellen? John Hunan has researched the family extnesively and gave the death date for William Manning cason, small pox in prison camp at pt lookout, md 11/14/1863. My grand father ( Thomas Edward Cason)'s obituary (8/3/1928) stated he had a brother, William still living in Coldwater, Miss. Further research told me William b. abt 1862 married L.L. Thornton. Florence Emerentha (Emma) ultimately lived in OK and married a Watkins. My mother remembered visiting them as did my cousins. They don't remember visiting William. There is also mention of Sophia or Sarah born 1855 don't know anymore than that about her, it only mentioned the brother and one sister in the obituary. I would be happy to send you a copy of the obituary or if you are a member of the my Heritage Family Tree that's where I have all my information. membership is free.
