to me
Comments: Mirabeau Lamar Mershon was a male baby, not female. Somebody made a mistake in listing him as a female and now people have copied that into family trees found all over the internet.
Mirabeau Lamar (1798-1859) was a great man, founder of the Columbus ENQUIRER newspaper, author and second president of the Republic of Texas. Mirabeau Lamar Mershon's elder brother Joseph Enos Mershon (1827-60) became the editor of the Columbus ENQUIRER and obviously knew Mirabeau Lamar. Joseph Enos Lamar went to Mobile and died there during an epidemic, thought to have visited Mirabeau's friends there, the Roberts family. Joseph's wife was a first cousin of Joel Abbot Roberts who also had a son Mirabeau Lamar Roberts.

In Reply to: Origin of Cason name? by Eric Earl Birmingham of 1563

Absolutely nobody is descended from George Cason from Ireland. In the first place, he wasn't from Ireland and in the second place he died single without children.

The Cason and Casson name probably had a common origin and is English. It is possible that the family originally was from Normandy and came to England with the conquest, but this hasn't been proven. No doubt, some members of the family have moved from England to Ireland, possibly Northern Ireland, but the family is English. William Cason was issued a Coat of Arms in England in 1379.

THE VIDALIA ADVANCE p. 2b
October 16, 1980
DAR'S MARK GRAVE OF REV. SOLDIER
William Brantley Mosley, a soldier of the American Revoltionary War, and ancestor of many prominent Georgia families was honored this month by members of the Vidalia Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) who
marked his grave with a wreath.

The life of Mosley was recalled and reviewed for members by a Mosley descendant, and noted genealogist, J. E. "Bo" Mosley, of Atlanta. He gave many interesting facts about his forefather who was born in South Carolina
in 1755, but moved to a part of Montgomery County, now Toombs, in 1804, and remained here until his death in 1852.

Following the meeting which was held at the North Thompson Baptist Church, DAR members and guests followed a route marked by American flags to the cemetery and grave of Mosley. There an honor guard and members of the Children of the American Revolution (CAR), under the guoidance of Frank Pruett, helped salute the patriot.

Honor guard members were: Lynn Thompson, Vidalia, drummer, and Ailey Boy Scouts, John Roller and Charles Robeson, Color Guard. Following a 21-gun salute by members of the Toombs County National Guaard Kevin
Robeson, Vidalia, played Taps, and CAR member, Susan Salter, placed a wreath on the grave.

(Large Picture: VIDALIA DAR MEMBER SUSAN SALTER lays a wreath from the local DAR chapter on the grave of Revolutionary War soldier, William Brantley Mosley, as members of the Mosley family look on, J. E. "Bo" Mosley (extreme left), a prominent genealogist, was the speaker for the occasion,and reviewed the life of is prominent ancestor.
