Tracey, you might have someone check the 1850 Federal Census for Jefferson Co, NY (or NY state census of 1855) as these are the first censuses which give the names of children. Francis would likely be listed since he was b. in 1839. There was a Frederick Casselman family in Lyme, Jefferson Co before 1850, but no children Francis, Adam or Walker. (also check varied spellings as Cosselman, Caselman, Castleman, etc.) Both Castleman and Casselman are listed in an index of "Old Houses in the North Country, " which was a newspaper feature from 1941-1956 which described the houses and their owners. Good luck.
