Read your post re the CASS family ...Do you happen to know more on James M?
reason asking is
WE found a marriage of a Elizabeth Holden to a J CASS in Buffalo NY May 8 1866....
This is the only family living in Buffao NY that matches Elizabeth..
The 1880 census shows the family
Elizabeth Cass age 42 br EngWidow.... John Cass age 13 br NY Mary Cass age 10 same William Cass age 7 same Frederick Cass age 4
The Elizabeth Holdenwe are looking for was br St Helens Lancs England in 1837 or 38 parents were James Holden and Christina nee Brice/Brew ....James died in St Helens in late 1840 and after 1851 UK census Christina and all Children left England and came to Buffalo NY...found them in the 1860 1870 and 1880 census ...we lost Elizabeth in the 187 census and found a marriage for a E Holden to a J CASS on May 8 1866 that was reported in the Buffalo Commercial Advertiser May 9 1866....I went to the 1880 US census on the LDS site and found the above who I think might be her...I went to the Cass message board and found your post which I think just might be the Cassfamily I am looking for ...
If this is right can I ask of you if you have anything on James Cass who might possibly be Elizabeths husband? Or am I totally off base here?
