Mrs. Mary Cassin, who was perhaps the oldest person that ever lived in Mercer county, died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Ann Doud, about ten miles south west of the city, about 8 o'clock Sunday morning at the remarkable old age of 103 years, as is supposed. Her age is not certainly known, but is believed to be correct. He eldest son, Martin Cassin, believes that she was born on May 12, 1800.

She was born in Ireland, her maiden name being Mary Feely. She was married to James Cassin, who died in Ireland in 1846. Eleven children were born to them, all of whom are still living. They are Martin, who lives about four miles south west of this city; Michael, of this city; Mrs. Catherine Doud, south west of town; Mrs. J. R. Moseley, Mannon; Mrs. James Breen, of Alexis; Mrs. Daniel Fleharty of North Henderson; Mrs. Lizzie Willits, of near Keithsburg; Mrs. Bridget Malene, of Britton, Ia.; Mrs. Joel Moseley, of near Mannon; Mrs. Ann Doud, of near Keithsburg, and William of San Antonia, Texas.

Mrs. Cassin came to America with the family in 1855, excepting Martin, who had preceded them a few years, and they joined him here in Mercer county in 1858.

Funeral services were held at the Catholic church in Keithsburg today at 10 o'clock, conducted by Rev. Father P. F. Sheridan. Interment was in the Catholic cemetery.
