Who Were the Parents of Simon S. Case, b.1811 New York?

By Marcia C. Field and Richard L. Tolman, Ph. D.

What We Know:

   Simon S. Case was born in 1811 at New York (from census) and married three times:  First to Ruth Delano abt 1833 in New York and then to Jane McDowell abt 1841 in Ohio and finally to Mary Elizabeth Perry 22 Dec 1863[1] at Huron County, Ohio (b. 1836).  The 1840 U. S. Census of Kirtland, Lake, Ohio[2] has Simon and Ruth with two children, a boy (Addison) and a girl (name unknown).  His birth in New York comes from the two U. S. Censuses in 1850 and 1860.

   Family (bible) records[3] list the children of Simon and Jane as: Francenia b. 23 Nov 1842 (d. 20 Jan 1845), James H. Case b. 23 Dec 1844, and Celia F. Case b. 9 Oct 1847.  The 1850[4] U. S. Census of Tallmadge, Summit, Ohio has Simon (b. 1810, New York) and Jane (b. 1810, Ireland) with three children named: (Addison) Porter Case, b. 1835 in New York; James (Hunt) Case, b. 1843 in Ohio; and Celia (Frances) Case, b. 1847 in Ohio.  The family also appears in the 1860[5]  U. S. Census of Middlebury, Summit, Ohio with much the same data:  S. S. Case, b. 1812 New York and Jane Case b. 1815 New York, with children Addison b. 1835, James b. 1844 and Celia b. 1847; children all born in Ohio.  We presume that Simon’s wife Ruth died before 1842 (in childbirth?), along with a daughter who, born before 1840, died before 1850.

   Simon was a ‘peddler’ in the 1860 Middlebury, Ohio Census, but four years later, in the 1864 Cincinnati, Ohio City Directory[6]  he is listed as a harness maker, a trade also practiced by Simon’s son James.  It is this trade that Simon practiced while serving in the Civil War.  There are two references to his Civil War service: Roster of Ohio Soldiers, 1861-1866[7] and in a biographical sketch of his son, James, from Summit, County, Ohio.[8]  “In 1864, at the age of 53, he enlisted in the army and was transferred to the government shops in Chattanooga for the manufacture of harnesses etc.  He served until the close of the war, and then relocated to Cincinnati.”  Still in Cincinnati in 1870[9], S. S. is listed as a saddler, res. 108 Baum St.  By 1876[10] he is living in Xenia, Ohio where he is still listed as a harness maker, res. 115 W. Market St.  There are two biographical sketches of his son, James which provide additional detail about his father: …about 1842, S. S. Case came to Middlebury where he followed the harness business, and later became an extensive dealer in stoneware.  He was the first shipper of stoneware from Summit County by rail.  He also took some contracts on the Mt. Vernon Railroad.[11]  In the second sketch it is stated that Simon S. Case came to Akron among the early settlers; he later engaged in general contracting and built an entire section of the C. A. & C. Railroad.[12],[13]

   Simon died in 6 Jan 1879 at Xenia, Greene, Ohio and is buried (no stone) in the Woodland Cemetery, Section K, lot 11,  Xenia, Greene, Ohio.  Simon’s will[14] was probated there; the estate administrator was Mary E. Case, widow (3rd wife), and lists Addison and his other children.  Most of Simon’s assets (lot 15 with house)[15] had to be liquidated to pay debts in the lengthy probate documents.  On 11 Mar 1880, Jane Case (2nd wife, age 65, therefore b. 1815) died[16] in Summit Co. Ohio; her will[17] names her children James H. and Celia F. Case Park, but not Addison (son of Simon and 1st wife, Ruth).  Presumably, Simon and Jane were divorced, and he left her the house and property in Summit Co., Ohio.

Y-DNA

   Charles Farrar Case (CFC, an uncle of Marcia Case Field) had his Y-DNA sequenced at FamilyTreeDNA and determined that his haplotype was I-M253.  There were two matches with genetic distance of 1:  Roger S. Case M.D.[18] (8ggf = Wm Solomon Case) and Eddie Case (Joseph Case b. 1756 Maryland, d. 1809 Bourbon, KY; his connection to Wm Solomon Case has not been discovered).  Therefore, CFC (and therefore Simon S. Case) are descendants of Wm Solomon Case b. 1582.[19]

   Probable Case descendance:[20]  Henry IV5 (1715-1767, m. 1st Sarah Wheeler, 2nd Margery Carscaddan) Henry III4 (1684-1720, m. Martha Payne) Henry II3 (1659-1740, m. Tabitha Vail) Henry2(1632-1665, m. Martha Corwin) Wm Solomon1(1582-1635, m. Ruth James)—how Simon descends from Henry IV Case has been discovered in this essay.

at-DNA: Collateral Surname Studies
Introduction:

   Turning now to autosomal DNA studies—searching the at-DNA matches of Marcia Case Field (hereafter MCF, a gggdau of Simon Case), her nephew John Scott Case (hereafter JSC), her niece Katherine Ellen Case (hereafter KEC) and a distant cousin Carolyn Woods (hereafter CW) for Cases/New York that can be mapped to the direct ancestral line, we find nearly all the matches (more than 50 for MCF) are in the 10-30cM range (5th-8th cousins).[21]  Identification of a CA (Common Ancestor) for any of these matches depends on available paper sources gathered by the individual matches and many of these matches have copied bad genealogy from others.  One must be very cautious.  Examination of the genealogy of the matches allows them to be arranged into four groups: the Rhode Island Cases, the Simsbury Connecticut Cases, the Southold New York Cases and the relocation of some of those Southold Cases to Orange County New York.  In our preliminary view of the data, Wm Solomon Case of Aylsham, Norfolk, England b. 1582 is a common ancestor for all these matches.  Wm Solomon Case had five sons.[22]  The eldest Wm Rodich Case went to Rhode Island and became the patriarch of the Rhode Island Cases.  Similarly, the second son John[23] went to Connecticut and is the founder of the Simsbury, Hartford Case family.  Of Trustin and Richard, little is known,[24] but the fifth son Henry went to Southold, Long Island and was the progenitor of the Long Island Cases and the Orange County, New York Case families.

   Consider an example involving autosomal DNA:  A hypothetical John has sons James and Thomas.  You are descended through Thomas and possess therefore Catherine-DNA and Sarah-DNA.  You CANNOT inherit Mary-DNA.  The operating principle here is: one can only inherit DNA on the direct line and not from a collateral line.  The discovery of significant matches for a maiden surname shows that the surname family is on the direct line.  However, an unsuccessful search for collateral surname matches is an indication, but proves nothing as absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.

Scheme 1

Initial Premise:

   Looking over all the available paper data accumulated over time, the simplest solution to the problem of Simon’s parentage is to postulate that Simon was the son of Thomas and Catherine Carscaddan Case, born 1811 in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania.  To do this we have to ignore (1) that Simon’s existing records all say he was born in New York not Pennsylvania and (2) postulate that Simon’s birthname was Sanson Case.  To the first point he may have considered himself of a New York family as that is where previous generations of the Case family came from.  He is named ‘Sanson’ in his father’s will; but there is no other mention of a ‘Sanson Case’ in the written genealogical literature—zero!  Other genealogical investigators have manufactured records of a ‘Lucius S. Case’ (of Bradford Co. Pennsylvania) as a son of Thomas, but further investigation of the records eliminates these from realistic consideration.  His father Thomas’ Will[25] is interesting:  It is well established that Thomas and Catherine’s eldest son was Anson Case, but he is not mentioned in the Will although he and his family are alive and living in Luzerne County—perhaps he has been disowned.  The other children are mentioned not strictly in the order of their births, but including Sanson (6th), who has the birthyear of 1810/1 identical to Simon’s reported birth year.  As the reader will see, the DNA record supports the identity of Sanson as Simon; considerable genealogical investigation also supports this supposition although no actual proof has been uncovered.  The balance of the essay describes these efforts and other discoveries of the descendants of Henry IV Case.

Summary of Findings:

   Using the strategy of maiden name searches (Scheme 1), three DNA sources had a significant number of matches to Carscadden/New York (i. e. Thomas Case’s wife Catherine Carscadden) with two matches (JSC and KEC) going back to the family’s American patriarch Robert Carscaddan (b. 1690) with appropriate paper source support (see Cluster 1) and no confounding surnames.  As JSC and KEC are Simon-descendants, the Carscadden surname is on Simon’s direct line of descendancy.

   The ‘cmlindsay1’ match descends from Robert and Catherine Patterson Carscadden (the Common Ancestor) through their son Robert who married Diana Gifford whereas Simon descends through Robert’s sib Thomas who married Anna Coleman (see Carscaddan Genealogy vide infra for details); ‘J. H.’ descends from their dau Margery (m. Henry Case).

   Thomas Case’s father was Absalom Case (married Sarah Elizabeth Dunn).  A search for matches to Dunn/New York produced significant MCF and KEC matches—‘John D. Rollins’, 22cM and 26cM, single segments—to Thomas Dunn Sr. (b. 1730, Sarah Dunn Case’s father), but the matches had confounding Bruce lines (MCF/KEC genealogy).  JSC had no ‘John D. Rollins’ match.  We can only conclude from these matches that Dunn may be on Simon’s direct line.  See Cluster 2.

   CW also had a Dunn/New York match ‘John Cocozza Hill’, 8cM, single segment—to Thomas Dunn (Jr.) Sarah Elizabeth’s brother.  This match had a confounding Moore line, but investigation showed that Hill’s Moore line was in Warren County, New York in that time period and CW’s Moore line was in the South, mostly Tennessee and Texas beginning with Thomas Moore, b 1732 who immigrated from London to Dorchester, Maryland; therefore, the confounding Moore line was deemed to be not relevant.  The ‘John Cocozza Hill’ match has also proven that CW is a direct descendant of Thomas Dunn, Sr. b. 1730 (this match has no Case line or any other confounding surname so the DNA shared must be Dunn-DNA).  Therefore, Lawrence Case b. 1775 New York, CW’s well documented ancestor, is likely a son of Absalom and Sarah Elizabeth Dunn Case vide infra.  It is also an additional confirmation that Dunn is indeed on Simon’s direct line—an extrapolation of the Euclidian axiom: things that are equal to the same thing are equal to each other.

CW’s Ancestry:

   Ancestry Family Trees all have Lawrence (father of Uriah Case) as a son of Zenas and Martha Maragauld Case based solely on the 1810 U.S. census of Kortland, Delaware, New York,[26] where Zenas and Lawrence are adjacent in the census list.  The Zenas (1751-1816)[27] of the Ancestry Family Trees (not the Zenas of the 1810 census) died 23 Feb 1816 at Piermont, Grafton, New Hampshire; his will[28] names six children, but no Lawrence.  Since Lawrence didn’t die until 1862, we must conclude that the Zenas of the 1810 census is not Lawrence’s father.  Another problem—the Zenas b. 1751 was married to Margaret Peters,[29] not Martha Maragauld.  Zenas and Martha are known to have one dau Sally Lavina b. 5 Mar 1797 in Kortright,[30] Delaware; so, the Zenas of the 1810 census is much more likely to be Lawrence’s brother.[31]  Examining the tax records of Delaware County, we note that in 1800 a Stephen Case paid tax on 375 acres.[32]  Then in 1802 there are three Cases adjacent in the record: Stephen (175 acres), ‘Zenis’ and ‘Zenis, Jun.’ (75 acres each).[33]  This suggests that Stephen,[34] son of Absalom Case, has subdivided his acreage with his brother Zenas and his son.  By 1810 another brother Lawrence had joined them in Kortright (Census of 1810 vide supra) and Stephen had moved on to Harpersfield, Ashtabula, Ohio.  By 1820 Lawrence had joined brother Stephen in Harpersfield, Ashtabula, Ohio.

   This descendancy of Lawrence as a son of Absalom is confirmed by additional DNA study:  CW has no meaningful[35] Carscaddan matches (indicating a collateral relationship), but significant Wheeler matches vide infra (a direct line relationship).  Lawrence Case also named one of his sons Absalom after his father.[36]

   There are other matches to the Absalom Case family (see Cluster 3).

Wheeler (Direct Line):

   Sarah Wheeler was the wife of Henry IV Case and the mother of at least five children including Absalom Case.  All three DNA sources had a significant number of Wheeler/New York matches.  This is additional confirmation of their lineage from Absalom Case.  To narrow the field, the life history of Henry and Sarah was reviewed: Henry was raised on Long Island (Suffolk County) and must have met and married Sarah there as after their marriage they went briefly to Dutchess County before moving to Orange County New York (see Genealogical Summary for refs).  Searching the matches for Wheelers who lived in Suffolk County in the 100 years around Sarah’s probable birth, only four matches were discovered (see Cluster 4).

   Therefore, Sarah Wheeler’s possible parents are Thomas and Anne Edwards Wheeler of Suffolk County, New York.[37],[38]  The ancestors of Thomas Wheeler b. 1678 had come from New Haven Connecticut two generations earlier; there were a great many matches to Connecticut Wheelers among the four DNA donors.

Carscadden/Carskadden (Direct Line):

   CW had some Carscadden matches (not enumerated), but they were all matches with Absalom Case as the Common Ancestor (therefore Carskadden is a collateral line; the DNA shared was Case-DNA).  MCF’s nephew JSC and niece KEC have no Carskadden/Pennsylvania matches.  However, there are five MCF matches (Carskadden/Pennsylvania), descendants of Thomas Case/Catherine Carscadden (‘Juliana Toole’ 23cM, ‘D. C. 22cM, ‘rruple5’ 20cM, ‘bob157059’ 19cM, and ‘Rob Peeler’ 19cM); see Cluster 5.  These people could be matching Case-DNA or Carskadden-DNA with MCF

   There are two additional ambiguous MCF matches (search: Scadden/New York).  ‘stlbelle’[39] and ‘H. R.’ are descendants of Anson Scadden (b. 1779), a brother to Catherine Carskadden.  Anson married Sarah Case, a sister of Thomas Case; the matches could be to Carscadden or Case DNA.

   Margery Carscadden had three children with Henry IV Case all born in New York (Albany and Orange Counties): William Carscadden (b. 1757), Cate (b. 1759), and Joshua (b.1762) m. 18 Nov 1787 Patience Van Scoy.[40]  There is one match to Henry’s 2nd marriage to Margery Carscadden (see Cluster 6).  JSC/KEC could share Carscadden- or Case-DNA with ‘J. H.’

   Catherine Carskadden (wife of Thomas Case) was the dau of Thomas Carskadden and Anna Coleman.  Anna Coleman (b. 1749, wife of Thomas Carskadden, b. 1740) has roots in Orange County and before that in Southold, Suffolk, New York [descent:  Anna4 Jeremiah3 William2 d. 1760 William1 Coleman, b. abt 1680, d. 1742, Southold, Suffolk, New York.][41]

   There are at least 8 MCF matches (search: Coleman/New York) with descents from the Wm Coleman b. 1680 line, excepting the descents from Thomas Case/Catherine Carskadden; see Cluster 7.  Most of the Coleman matches (8-20cM) go back to Southold, New York in the early 17th century.  For more detail of Jeremiah Coleman (Anna’s gf), see Coleman Genealogy near the end of the essay.

   There are also twenty-eight MCF matches, seventeen JSC matches and eleven KEC matches to Collins/New York (Jeremiah Coleman, Anna’s father, married Sarah Collinsdau of Abraham and Sarah Baldridge Collins[42]), but no useful connections to the Jeremiah Collins lineage could be made based on others disclosed genealogical research.  There were also many matches to Baldridge with similarly no obvious connections.  This further substantiates the Coleman surname on the direct descendant line.

   In summary, we have established Carolyn Woods as a 6th cousin of Marcia Field (Common Ancestor Absalom Case) and we have proven by DNA analysis initial postulates to be correct—Simon to be ‘Sanson’ Case, son of Thomas and Catherine Carscadden Case.

Generation Five

     44.  James Hunt Case[167]) was born 23 Dec 1844 at Middlebury (now Akron), Summit, Ohio and attended the Middlebury public schools.   He apprenticed in the carriage-ironing trade (machinist) in Greenville, PA at age 17, and then worked in the machine shops of Kent, Baldwin and Co. for 1½ years.[168]

      James joined the army at age 19 (Company A, Second Regiment, Ohio Cavalry) mustering in at Columbus and first ordered to Tennessee and Kentucky.  He participated in the battles of the Wilderness, Mine Run, Spotsylvania, Hanover Court House and all battles from the Wilderness to the surrender of Lee.  He was sick for a couple of months after Wilson’s Raid and spent time in the hospitals at Baltimore and Wilmington, after which he rejoined his regiment and fought in the battles of Winchester, Berryville, Fisher’s Hill, Cedar Creek and Stony Creek.  James re-enlisted in 1863 and remained in the service until after the final surrender of the Confederate forces, and mustered out 11 Sep 1865 at St. Louis, MO.[169]
After the Civil War worked as a machinist for 4 years at Aultman, Miller and Co.[170] and then the Buckeye Reaper and Mower Works until the spring of 1876 when he opened his drug business, where he remained for 31 years.[171]
James married[172] (1) 1 Jan 1872 at Summit County, Ohio Ella Sophia Farrar, dau of Charles Sumner Farrar (1825-1892) and Emma Bruce (1822-1914).  Their only child, Charles Francis Case was born[173] 8 Dec 1875 at Akron just before James established himself in the drug business in the Sixth ward where he was also a chemist for the Absolute Chemical Co.[174]

Ella grew up in Fitchburg, MA with her parents and moved to Akron in 1869 at age 16 when her dad became superintendent at Whitman & Barnes (ultimately International Harvester).  After her divorce from James, the 1880 census[175] shows Ella as a student (at the Cincinnati College of Music), and a few years later, teaching voice and piano in the area.  In 1893 she became the director of the choir at the Universalist Church in Akron, while conducting classes in piano and harmony in her father’s home where she was living, according to an undated Beacon Journal article.  In 1897 Ella married (2) John Holaday, who is listed in the 1897 Akron City Directories (The Burch Directory Co., p. 392) as a contractor, and in 1898 as an inventor (p. 386).  Sadly, two years after marriage John dies of typhoid fever after a visit to the Farrar’s (and Ella’s) summer home on Chautauqua Lake, NY.  By 1920, Ella had purchased her own home in Chautauqua, had married (3) 27 May at Akron James E. Richards and was raising the granddaughter of her son, Charles, whose wife had died in childbirth.  Ella was studying for the ministry in Kansas City in 1924 and ultimately took in seminary students at her Chautauqua home, ‘Maple Lodge’.  She later moved to Jamestown, NY where she died on 23 Aug 1942 of pulmonary embolism after having fallen and broken her hip.  She was buried with John (husband 2) and her parents in their Glendale Cemetery plot in Akron.
James Case continued working for ‘Absolute’ until about 1892, but continued as a druggist until 1915, according to the Akron City Directories.  The drug store carried all sorts of things, such as paints and varnishes, wallpaper, cigars and ice cream.  By 1905 his drug store had changed locations and had also become postal station no. 4 . James served two terms in the City Council (1865-1869) and was postmaster at Postal Station No. 4.[176]  He was a republican, a mason in high standing and a member of Buckley Post, G. A. R.[177]
Divorced from Ella by 1880, he married (2) 17 April 1890 Margaret (Maggie) Rebecca Jones Blocker, a woman who he had probably met through his association with another druggist in Akron, Henry C. Blocker, Maggie’s first husband (m. before 1877).[178],[179]  In about 1919 James and Margaret traveled to Santa Cruz, CA to visit his sister, Celia.  After 9 months there, he died 4 June 1920 (gastric carcinoma).[180]  Margaret then returned to Akron to bury James in their East Akron Cemetery plot where she was also buried when she died there in 1936.

James and Ella Farrar Case had one son.

  45 i.  CHARLES FRANCIS CASE born 23 8 Dec 1875 at Akron, Ohio and died 20 June 1964 at Chautauqua, Chautauqua, New York.

Generation Six

     45.  Charles Francis Case (at right[181]) was born 8 Dec 1875 at Akron, Ohio.  Since his parents divorced when he was only 6, he was raised by his mother and her parents, Emma Bruce and Charles Sumner Farrar, spending his school years in Akron, and many of his summers at their cottage in Chautauqua, NY.  At age 18 he attended Buchtel College, (which later became the Univ. of Akron).  The 1893 through 1896 Akron City Directories list Charles Francis as an electrician, for it was around this time that he also studied electrical engineering at the Case School of Applied Design in Cleveland.[182] 

      In the later 1890s he is listed in the Akron Directories as the proprietor of North Ohio View and Engraving Works, having become interested in photoengraving, but he is still working out of his grandparent’s home on E. Mill St until his mom remarries and he moves with her and her new husband, John Holaday, to her new home on W. Market St.  It is during these years, while he is visiting Chautauqua with his mother, that he wires her home on Lake St., the first house wired in Chautauqua.  In 1895 he had been granted a patent for a house-wiring fixture[183] and another patent for a feed-water-heating chamber with his stepfather, John.[184]  By 1901, the Akron City Directories again listed him as an electrician.
Charles married (1) Erna Dora Habicht, on 1 July 1901 and brought her home to his mom’s house to live. (Ella’s husband, John, had died of Typhoid fever in 1899.)  At some time in the early 1900s Ella with Charles and Erna moved to E. Orange, NJ where Ella had a new suitor, but Erna died after giving birth to their daughter, Erna Annelle in 1904, and Ella said that she and her new husband, James Edward Richards, would raise her new granddaughter.
Charles Francis Case married (2) Elizabeth (Bess)Nicholas Bird on 22 Feb 1906. Their son Wesley Bird Case was born 29 April 1907 in Newark, NJ, and that same year the family moved to Hamilton Ave., Detroit, MI (then Erskine St. according to the 1910 Census) where Charles had taken a job with the Reliance Motor Truck Co. in Pontiac, Michigan on developing an electric car.  Reliance was an early part of General Motors.  Charles’ second son, Charles Farrar Case was born 10 Jan 1911 while they lived in Detroit.  He must have also worked for the Oliver Motor Car Co. around this time because he and a fellow worker applied for another patent in 1910.[185]  Leaving the Detroit area in 1915, he was sent to San Francisco, CA to man, and represent the Mack Truck exhibit at the San Francisco Pan Pacific International Exposition to tout the virtues of the electric car.  Daughter Elizabeth Lucille Case was born on 11 Aug 1915 while his family was living there on Carl St.

    Charles and his young family returned to the east coast in 1916, renting a house near his mother in East Orange, NJ.  The very next year, Ella helped Charles and his family buy a 250-acre farm in Frenchtown, NJ.  Unimproved initially, Charles built barns and outbuildings, purchased dairy cattle, and turned the farm into a ‘certified’ dairy farm called Del View Farms on River Road.  Processed at the farm, the milk was distributed by truck and train to the surrounding areas, but the farm fell on hard times in the mid-1920s.   Charles and Bess divorced in the late 1920’s. The family then moved to Philadelphia, and within weeks Charles returned to his mother at Chautauqua (the Chautauqua Institute) where she was a minister, renting out rooms in her new home, Maple Lodge, to seminary students.[186]   His eldest son, Wesley, in the meantime stayed in Lambertville (next to Frenchtown) with friends to finish high school there.  His wife, Bess, the more practical of the two adults, had a hard time on her own in Philadelphia, but took in roomers, peddled Book House books etc, and her two sons worked part-time to make ends meet.  Bess continued to live with or near her daughter and her daughter’s husband, Carl Herbster, in Philadelphia until she died of a heart attack on 9 Mar 1960.

     Charles married (3) Irene Lydia Kramer on 19 Aug 1933 in Marshall, IL, but instead of striking out on their own, Charles and Irene returned to Chautauqua to live with his mother Ella who died in 1942.[187]  They continued to remain in the home with Irene dying 13 July 1962, and Charles dying 20 June 1964 of retroperitoneal sarcoma.[188]  In his last 2 years, his first daughter, Erna and her daughter, moved in with Charles to take care of him.[189]  All in all, Charles spent close to 4 decades in the Chautauqua area having first visited at age 5, as his grandfather was a close friend of the founder of Chautauqua, Lewis Miller of Akron, Ohio.  For his last 30 years, Charles was the supervisor of the Chautauqua Institute’s Amphitheater[190], not surprising since he grew up loving music and opera and often attended operas in NYC, when in the area.  He was a member of the Hurlburt Memorial Church, Chautauqua, and he and Irene share a headstone right inside the main entrance to the Chautauqua Cemetery.

63. There is a William Case of Orange County, New York who married Jane Houston 11 Jan 1812 at Goshen, Orange, New York (Presbyterian Historical Society, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; U. S. Presbyterian Church Records, 1701-1907, Book title: 1773-1851, 80/280, online at Ancestry.com). This is NOT William Carscadden Case. This William (son of John Frank Case and Elizabeth Ketcham of Orange County) bought land in Crawford, Orange County from his brother Elisha Case (FamilySearch https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:ZHCR-WFN2). He appears with 6 children in the 1830 and 1840 U. S. censuses. In the 1855 NY Census (Household 198, 6 members—3 grandchildren; online at Ancestry.com), he and Jane are named; he was 69, born 1786, not 1757.

128. Noyalis Tree has an additional son for Thomas/Catherine (Lucien/Lucius S. ‘Sanson’ Case) also born 1810 (74 at death in Nov 1884, Noyalis source); he is from Bradford County, Pennsylvania and although he died in Luzerne County, his remains are returned to Bradford County. He is not named in Thomas’ Will. He is probably not credible as a son of Thomas. The name ‘Sanson’ does appear in the will, but probably refers to the oldest son Anson who is prominent in the area at Thomas’ death in 1844 and is not otherwise mentioned by the name Anson in the will. Anson was most likely named after Anson Carskaddan who moved with the Cases from Orange County to settle Plymouth Mountain with the Cases (see Hogoboom).

206. Wm Coleman Genealogy, p. 45.

207. FamilySearch Family Tree has a notation that Ruth’s dau Nellie died in 1814 and that her will was on file in Goshen. Orange, New York; it purportedly mentions Nellie’s sisters and mother Ruth Coleman indicating that Ruth was still alive. This author has been unable to locate the will.

208. Wm Coleman Genealogy, p. 45; there are no vitae given for Ephraim.

209. 1800 U. S. Census of New Windsor, Orange, New York, Page 289, Ruth is listed as the family head; online at FamilySearch https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XH5T-JDG.

210. Elihu Horton Collection (Orange County Genealogical Society, Goshen, New York); From a letter dated April 1, 1954, listing Ephraim and Ruth Coleman’s children and spouses: Phoebe, Elizabeth, Mary, Julianna, and Nellie. Nellie had a will on file in Goshen that discloses this information.

211. There is obviously a problem here: Julianna and Elizabeth can’t both have been born in 1789.

212. Findagrave #137574584; buried at Vails Gate Cemetery, Orange, New York.

213. There is a report on FamilySearch Family Tree that she married (2) a Mr. Smith and had a bunch of additional children and then died in 1798. Since there exists credible sources that she was alive in 1814 (Nellie’s will and the 1800 census), the Smith children report is deemed not credible. There is an Elizabeth Smith Still of Suffolk County, New York, obviously a different person from Elizabeth Coleman Still of Orange County, New York.

214. Will of Robert Carskaden of New Windsor Precinct, Ulster County, New York, Calendar of Wills, Orange County, New York (1769), p. 74, names 4 sons, gsons Caleb Wily and Wm Carskadan Case, and daus Margery Case and Lydia Jain; online at FamilySearch (Digital Book URL: https://archive.org/details/calendarwillson00appegoog); hereafter Robert Carskadan Will.

219. 1800 U. S. Census of Newburgh, Orange, New York; household of 7.

220. There are no documented birthyears; FamilySearch has 3 Thomases with a 13 range in birthyears.

221. Ruttenber, p. 105. The author mentions the marriages of Thomas to Major Joseph Pettingale’s daus; we presume they died or divorced soon after their respective marriages. No other Thomas Carskadden is known in this area at this time; therefore, it is assumed that Thomas married (3) Anna Coleman as well. Judging by the oldest of their children, Thomas was abt 30 yrs.—making these assumptions plausible.

222. Jeremiah’s Will, acknowledged his dau Anna Carskeden.

223. McLean, p. 18 (cited 1800 U. S. Census of Newburgh, Orange, New York). In 1800 two of Thomas/Anna’ s children were in Luzerne Co. Pennsylvania. Therefore, the older children are assumed to be children of a Pettingale wife.
