Thomas F. Cassidy is the son of Thomas Cassidy and Ann McBride both born in Ireland, and later moved to Lanark, Scotland for work in the coal mines. I have not establish where in Ireland they where born. Both parents died in Scotland, and are buried there. Ann Cassidy remarried to James Tiernan also born in Ireland. Thomas married Bridget C. Murphy in Rutherglen, Lanarkshire County, Scotland on 11-30-1871. In July 1875 travel with their two young sons Thomas and Felix on the U.S.S. Utopia to New York, and settled in Plymouth township & Larksville, PA. Thomas immigrates for employment in the coal mines. They have ten children- six daughters and four sons. Tom was well known as a musician with St. Vincent Depaul Church, Plymouth, PA. Tom and Bridget belong to the W.C.A.U. a temperance group within the Catholic church for many years. By 1925 Thomas is age 70 and still working in the mine, after eating his lunch Thomas has a heart attack and is found dead at the Loree No.#3 in Larksville. His wife Bridget dies on 4-17-1930, at a daughter Teresa Jones house in Collingsdale, Delaware County, PA., and is buried next to her husband. There is no tombstone on the grave.

Still trying to locate two more children;

1. Theresa Jones
2. Elizabeth Trainor
