Cassandra Urban: died July 21, 1912

(Cassandra was the father of Mary Catherine Urban, wife of Timmons Literal.)

Fall96 (1)crpd Cassandra Urban was born July 04, 1831 in Alabama, and died July 21, 1912. He married Susannah L.E. Landtroop (#114) Abt. 1855, daughter of Stith Landtroop and Mary. She was born May 27, 1837 in Alabama ??, and died November 29, 1908.(1)

In January of 1870, Cassandra purchased 50 acres of land from R.L. McLaren on “the waters of Blue Water Creek” (Range 5, Section 1). It appears his neighbors were Frances Smith and possibly John Bivens.(3)   By June of 1870, we also find neighbors Powell, Tomas Marion Smith (and a widow, Polly Smith nearby), William Ezell, the families of Aaron, J.M., and Joseph Sandy, and the families of Zachariah and William Belew.

Also nearby is the family of a Mr. M. Holman (a millwright), his wife Sarah, and seven children, including a Sarah E. Holman, age 14. In 1882, as a result of some legal proceedings(4) involving Lizzie C. Holman, Clerk and Master W.J. Nixon deeded to C. Urban three parcels of land totaling about 400 acres of land for the sum of $75. These three lots “lying on Bluewater” in the 2nd Civil District bordered the 50 acres Cassandra had purchased in 1870 and a 600 acre tract owned by A. King.

On the 1860 Census, it appears that Cassandra and Susannah were in the Westpoint, TN area.
