The sudden death of Mrs Frank Cassiday, Monday night, caused much sorrow in Birmingham. Mrs Cassiday had not been in good health for the past year, but of late was able to attend to her household duties. On Monday afternoon Mrs Cassiday went into her garden for the purpose of raking the rubbish from it and was at work and alone when she was stricken with paralysis. The little daughters of Mr and Mrs James Lantz found her in the garden shortly after school and while one of the girls did what she could for Mrs Cassiday the other girl went after Mr Cassiday who was at work in a nearby field.
A doctor was summoned and all that loving hands could do was done for her, but Mrs Cassiday passed away about 10 o'clock Monday night.
The funeral was held at the church in Birmingham on Tuesday, March 27th, at 11 o'clock. Rev J T Hutchison preaching. The funeral was one of the largest ever held in Birmingham. The remains were laid away in the Round Top Cemetery.
