Shared Note
Michael Cassidy believes Andrew and Margaret are buried in the Church of Ireland cemetery in the Village of Inver at the mouth of the Eany River. This cemetery is very difficult to find now ‏(2000)‏. ‏[Verification is needed that Michael is not confusing this Andrew and Margaret with the grave in the Cemetery of a William Cassidy who died in 1906 and his wife Margaret who died in 1899. See Ardaghey Church and People p71.]‏

The Henderson family, who own a hardware store in Donegal, lived next to the Cassidy stone cottage in Inver Port in the early 1800s. They believe the Cassidys and Hendersons are cousins through a marriage between Margaret, the sister of William, who it is believed stayed in Ireland, and a great or great great grandfather of the two older Hendersons, Jimmy and George, both in their 80s ‏(1999)‏ and still live in the vicinity of Inver/Donegal.

The ruins of the Cassidy cottage, which Michael Cassidy saw many years before ‏(1999)‏ on a visit to Inver, seem to have disappeared. In its place now is a depot for a salmon fish farm.

Andrew's sons, Frank, Robert, Thomas and Andrew also came to America and arrived in Saint John, N.B. or elsewhere.

From notes that Stan Cassidy made Dec. 11, 1949, we learn the following about Andrew's sons:

Frank married later in life at about age 50 to Miss O'Neill. They had no family.

Robert married an American in Boston. They were fine people, lived in Fall River, Mass. and had one boy.
Andrew lived in Boston ‏(West Roxbury)‏, Mass. Had sons Andrew and George.

Thomas lived in Boston. Had several sons and two daughters, Jennie and Margaret who lived in Revers ‏(Boston)‏. They were great friends of Jennie Dunlop. ‏[Revers may be a spelling error. Should probably be Revere which is just NE of downtown Boston.]‏

Andrew's birth date of 1793 is the same year and his parents married indicating a very short pregnancy.

Michael reports that the Church of Ireland records he found in Dublin do not go back to the time of the mariage of Andrew's parents. It was quite by accident he found marriae information for Andrew. It was on the back of minutes of parish meetings. The paper had been reused.

Dave Bradley of Belfast family tree on has Andrew's death as 21 July, 1846. From the death record found by Marilee Cunningham, 2 July 1846 is probably the correct date. /Peter Cassidy 2/7/2021
