Looking for Cassa A. Dunham of Lorain Co. Ohio

Surnames: Bogart/Dunham
I am looking for my great grandmother, Cassa Augusta Dunham born about 1858. She was married to James Cox Bogart and they lived the Lorain and Elyria , Ohio areas all their lives. After James died, Cassa married Milo Moulton. Cassa and James had six children, one being my grandfather Ernest Bertsel Bogart. I have a great uncle who owned and operated the Bogart Dairy in or around Elyria. I do know that Cassa's mother's name was Adaline Elizabeth but don't know her maiden name. Cassa was also one of the heirs of Edwin B. Jennings who was a Chicagoan millionaire. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Surnames: Dunham, Bogart
Yes, I do recognize this as my line as many of the names are familiar. I have finally found my Great Grandmother Cassa "Cassie" Augusta Dunham and found (through another site) her death certificate and was able to print it as well. The information that you have on her is correct. You can find pictures of her on my George Baum Tree as well as many newspaper articles. When she died, her name was Cassa Moulton as she remarried after my Great Grandfather, James Cox Bogart, died. I have some info on her father Eli Dunham but nothing on her mother Adeline Chambers. The family lived primarily in Lorain County, Ohio. I am very interested in photos of anyone in the Dunham family as I don't have much at this point except for pictures of James, Cassie and their children. It will take me some time to sort through all of the information you sent but I certainly look forward to hearing from you again. Thanks for the info.........Cindy Ferguson

Surnames: Bogart Dunham Miller Tournas
Hi I am a decendant of Cassie, my Great Grand father was William Bogart who owned Bogart Dairy in Vermillion until the property was sold in about 1986, my line to Cassie

Cassie - William Bogart married Caroline Hitsman
and had 5 children I am unsure of the order of birth the only one I know is still living is Nettie and I think she was the youngest.

Lloyd, Howard, Nettie, Goldia and my Grandmother Ruby Belle Miller nee Bogart. Ruby married Laurie McClymont Miller and had one child Juanita Tournas nee Miller my mother.

I have many pictures from my Grandmothers childhood and at least one picture of William Clinton Bogart Cassies son.

I would love more informaiton on Cassie and James

How wonderful it was to find your message. My grandfather is Ernest Bertsel Bogart, son of Cassie and James and brother to your great grandfather William. My mother, aunts and uncles always referred to William and Caroline as Uncle Will and Aunt Carrie. Nettie is still living and my cousin is in touch with her all the time. I have pictures of Nettie when she came to visit in Michigan a few years ago. I also have a picture of Uncle Will and my grandfather (somewhere) shortly before Uncle Will passed away. I would LOVE to see the pictures you have and would be willing to pay for copies. William and Caroline (Hitsman)did have five children and they are: Goldie Luella born 12 June 1904 ~ died 22 March 1976; Lloyd William born 28 April 1906 ~ died 2 June 1990; Howard Clinton born 1 September 1910 ~ died 10 November 1990; Ruby Bell born 12 December 1912 ~ died 20 April 1983; Nettie born 16 October 1917.

I should tell you that I may be suspending my Ancestory membership for a month or so, but for certain will be back! I look forward to hearing back from you. To contact me directly, send an e-mail to
