  • Note:
    There were 3 Cassen (Cason) listed as permanent settlers at Jamestown in
    1607. George, Thomas and William. I have seen the IGI site at Family
    Search and someone has George listed as the father of Thomas Sr. born
    1604 in London then Thomas Jr. and on down to John father of Edward. I
    would like to know who sent the information in and what are the
    documented facts to support this lineage. George was born in 1580 in
    Ireland then to London and off to Jamestown where he was tortured and
    killed by the Indians in 1635. I would like to hear from anyone with
    information on this intresting issue. My line goes back as far as John
    Cason father of Edward who married Joanna Butcher abt 1727 in Virginia.
