Re: Alan & Andrew Casher/Adeline Levenia H.
I am researching your family and wondered if you or your dad knew anything about Mollie Casher.She was your grandfather Jesse's sister, born about 1879.She married first a man named W. T. Birdsong (Sebastian Co marriage record) and then about 3 years later, she married Dwight Demoss in Crawford Co. AR (I found a marriage record for this info too).Mollie and Dwight Demoss had 4 children:Harold b. abt. 1904, Shufford b. abt. 1906, Nellie b. abt. 1908 and Leona b. abt. 1912.In 1920 Sebastian Co. census, the family is split up and Nellie Demoss is living with her Aunt Fannie Casher and Fannie's husband Herbert Howard.
I have traced this family back to an 1870 Johnson Co. Kansas census. It shows the following living in one household:
Allen Casher 26 Farmer born AR
John 21 born KY
Andrew 18 born KY (Father of Mollie, Jesse, Fannie, Viola)
Mary 10 born KY
Cynthia 12 born KS
Rick 9 born KS
Sarah 3 born KS
William 1 born KS
I am wondering where the parents are.It looks as though the children are all living together without their parents.Someone on this forum said they believed Andrew's parent to be Allen.The Allen in this census is too young to be Andrew's father..looks more like a brother to me.
Any info appreciated on this family. I would love to know more about them.Pat Adkison
