Some Cason family information

One of the major family groups among our cluster of DNA-linked Logans is that of William Logan and Joanna Cason Logan and their descendants. William Logan married Joanna Cason in (we assume) Edgefield County, South Carolina, in 1806. One of the many intriguing, but still dangling, aspects of our connected Logans and kin is that the Casons also were in Spotsylvania County, Virginia, the same county where our earliest William Logan is first found.

The following information is from Spotsylvania County, Virginia Marriage References and Family Relationships 1721-1800 by F. Edward Wright, 2013:

Cason, Edward of St. George’s Parish m. b. 3 Dec 1759 Joanna. Edward had sons William, Seth and Thomas and perhaps a daughter Susannah. Edward and Joanna were residing in Buckingham County in 1775.

Cason, Edward S. of Prince Edward County had a son John who had a son Edward of Hanover County, as of 1779.

Cason, Edward (b. 1752 in Spotsylvania County, resided in Hanover County, d. 1834 in Spotsylvania County) served in Revolutionary War as private.

Cason, Roger m. bef. 21 Aug 1756 Elizabeth, intending to remove to North Carolina.

Cason, William m. bef. 1 May 1776 Susannah.

Note: No Logans are listed in this reference.
