Cassell Family Genealogy Forum
I have recently come upon new info that links my Vance line to Susannah Sowege Castle, daughter of Jacob Castle and his Shawnee wife Sowege Gulding Swan. Susannah supposedly married Alexander Vance, son of Samuel Vance and Ailey Carr. This Samuel Vance line never heard of Alexander and he is not mentioned in Samuel's will. We have this legend in our family that we had Indian ancestors but I thought it was from another line.
The info is: "Alexander Vance, born 1743, married Susannah Sowege Castle, born 1745 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, daughter of Jacob Cassell (Castle), also called the Great White Hunter and a Shawnee Indian Princess named Sowege Guilding Swan. She was also called Golden Swan by the white ettlers....." Anyone else ever heard of this?
