The original migration to America is better traced by some in the Colleges
back east -while I know the pattern of migration, I study the early
migrants west of the Mountains.
I just found an early Abraham Cassel at Jessamine Co KY. The settlement
there was from Antietam/Conococheague MD -in 1794 -Rohrers/Housers.
Abraham Cassell m. 1801 Sarah Rice
they had 12 children
one son: Leonard (1810-1899) -lived with his father on the farm on Ashgrove
Pike (Wilmore KY)
Do you have enough information to identify him for me?
