1860 Census [Wayne, Muskingum, OH., p. 289]:

  • Hannah Cassingham, female, age 21, born Ohio, married within the year. (Hannah is listed last in the household of James Cassingham -- after all his children. The reference to "married within the year" would seem to make her the wife of one of James' sons -- but none of them married a Hannah.)
