Casselberry Family Genealogy Forum
One set of my ancestors were Arnold Van Fossen and his wife Elizabeth Casselberry. In a Van Fossen family history book published in 1951(?) by Katherine Hobson van Fossen, She lists information that Arnold and Elizabeth were married at Olde Swedes Church in Philadelphia on Sept.3, 1760. Arnold was the son of Arnold Van Fossen and Elizabeth Sellen. Elizabeth Casselberry was the daughter of Paul Casselberry and Margaret Adams. Katherine Hobson van Fossen's research has been quite thorough and has proven out over time, but recently I found a glitch and it deals with the Casselberry family. I recently read a genealogy.com pedigree chart that lists Elizabeth Casselberry as the daughter of Derrick and Mary Casselberry. Looking into these records a little deeper, it appears that Paul and Derrick were brothers. Both of their parents are listed as Henry (Henrich Kesselberg) Casselberry and his wife Catherine. The research shows that both Paul and Derrick had daughters named Elizabeth. My question would be, does your research support either of these scenarios? and do you happen to know which family my Elizabeth falls into? Many thanks.
