Instead of my usual weekly post, I’ve been working hard to create two new documents, which can be found by clicking on the “Documents” link. These are Descendants of Thomas Casbon (1803-1888) and Descendants of James Casbon in America.
The documents were produced by my genealogy software (Family Tree Maker®), but took quite a bit of “tweaking” on my part to edit and update information. I plan to update them periodically as needed.
These reports cover the two main branches of the family that came to the United States from England. I started with these two because of the upcoming Casbon family reunion in Indiana on August 5th. Eventually, I intend to add additional reports covering all of the major branches of the family.

You will notice that information about living people is limited to their surnames. Their given names have been replaced with “Living.” I have done this to protect their privacy, while still allowing others to see how they are connected to the family. Although I’ve worked hard to keep information private, it’s possible that I’ve mistakes or used incorrect information. If you discover something that should be kept private, please contact me through the “Contact” link so I can make corrections.
Likewise, I may have indicated people as “Living” who are deceased. This happens when I don’t have birth or death information. Please contact me if you have updated information.

The information comes from a variety of sources. I have not personally verified every source, and there may well be errors. You are welcome to download and use the information, but please be aware of its limitations. Feel free to contact me with updated information or to ask questions about my sources. Photos are always welcome!
In the meantime, enjoy!
