  • Notes 
    • !Look for the following:

      !Land: Date of deed: -----1757 from Abstracts Sampson-Duplin Deeds Books 1-3 (ca. 1750 to ca. 1774), by Max R. Peterson, Jr., c 1983, p. 83. Sampson County, North Carolina Deed Book 2, p. 385 Registered: Grantor: Alexander Chesnutt and Sarah, his wife Grantee: William Cason Witnesses: Charles Chesnutt, David Chesnutt Acreage: 225 Consideration: 10 pounds Description: "'On the west side of Six Runs.' Deed mentions Dave Chesnutt, 'a little branch,' and Reedy Branch. Land was part of a tract of 540 acres granted to Alexander Chesnutt by patent dated 30 March 1756."

      !Descendants: According to E. L. (Boe) Williams, a Caison genealogist, William Caison had several sons: John, who moved to Brunswick Co; Hillery, who remained in Sampson Co; and Cannon who married Charity Hollingsworth and died in the Revolutionary War. !Spouse: Boe Williams suggests the William Caison may have married twice, since his family was closely connected to the Chesnutt family. (See the deed from Alexander and Sarah Chesnutt to William Caison.
