My great great grandfather, Adam Kase, born 1822/23 came to Jefferson boro, Codorus Township, York County, Pa. about 1847. In the 1850 census for that locality he is shown with a Catherine Kase,15, who must be his sister. Can anyone offer any information about who his parents may have been? He married Matilda Shearer and had children Leah, Henry (Harry), Ellen and Martin. Adam Kase was a plasterer and farmer,and also a musician. His son Harry was a tinsmith. Son, Martin was also a plasterer and was a tax assessor for Jefferson. Adam Kase died in 1901 and is buried in Jefferson.
