Martha (Philbrick) and John Cass

Here is a mention of my 9th great grandparents, Martha (Philbrick) and John Cass* (left hand column) in index for the "Founders and Patriots".

John was the first generation of the Cass family in my family tree to move from England to North America, around 1644.

Several online sources dispute the dates, but Martha was born about 1633 and married John Cass around 1647.  

John was born in England about 1620.  He died April 7, 1675 in Hampton, New Hampshire.

Here is another entry from the "History of Plymouth, New Hampshire, vol. 1. Narrative -- vol. II. Genealogies" by Ezra Scollay Stearns, Moses Thurston Runnels, Plymouth, N.H. Town History Committee.

*Cass has also been found spelled as "Casse"
