SAMUEL M. CASSEDAY, farmer; P. O. Mason; was born in Deerfield Township in the year 1819; he is a son of John and Martha (Wallace) Casseday; he was born in Rockbridge Co., Va., and she in the State of Kentucky. James Casseday, father of John, came with his family to Ohio in 1806, and located on land in Sec. 26, in this township, where William Casseday now lives; here he died in 1822; he was thrice married, and left a large number of descendants, of whom a number live in Warren County; he was a member of the Presbyterian Church, and a soldier in the war of 1812, and participated in the battle of Guilford. John Casseday was married to Martha Wallace in 1810; her parents came from Kentucky and settled in Turtle Creek Township in 1800, where they lived for some years, and then moved to Whitewater, Md., where they died. John, after his marriage, settled on the old farm; he died in 1860, aged 76 years; she departed this life in 1862, aged 76 years; to them were born nine children, three living, viz., William, Samuel and Mary Ammons; the deceased are Elizabeth, Nancy, James, and three who died in infancy. Our subject remained with his parents on the farm until 23 years of age. In 1843, he was married to Eliza, daughter of Patrick and Abigail Mehan. After his marriage, he lived four years on the home farm, then went to Butler County, where he resided three years, having in the mean time bought 61 acres of land, which he improved; with the exception of two years he passed in Mason, his time since has been passed on the land he first bought; he now owns 132 acres of choice farm land, which is nicely improved. To them have been born three children, viz., John, America and Sonora. He has served as Trustee of his township thirteen years. He was one of the founders of the new cemetery in Mason, and Treasurer of the fund. Mrs. Casseday, was born in Butler Co., Ohio, in 1824.
