Aka Samuel, Saul Cassat. He was the son of Samuel and Christiana? Cassat. His mother's name was probably Christiana. He married Eliza Essig in 1837. They purchased a 10 acre farm [lat 39.808443 long -77.230217] in Cumberland Township in 1841 and lived there for many years. He was baptized as an adult in Christ Lutheran Church on March 21,1842. During the Battle of Gettysburg the family remained in the cellar of their house for two days, behind Hancock's First Corps of the Union Army. After the intense shelling on the afternoon of July 3, Gen. Meade moved his headquarters a half mile down the Taneytown Road, briefly, to the Cassatt barn. While there Meade's chief of staff, Gen. Daniel Butterfield was wounded. Butterfield is generally considered the composer of "Taps." Shortly afterwards Meade moved out of the barn to Power's Hill. The Cassatt's property was severely damaged by the fighting and looting. They lost two horses, a cow was eaten by the soldiers, fence rails and posts burned, 10 barrels of buckwheat taken, 4 acres of wheat trampled, etc. They received $27. compensation, 20 years later. They had ten children: Jefferson Thomas, Mary Jane Wisotzski, Walter Samuel, George Washington, Levi, Beniah, David, Augustus, Sarah Little and Lydia.
