Mr. Cassidy died at his home at 2 o’clock Sunday morning. He had been sick
for quite a while and death was expected. Relatives and friends gathered at
the home at 9:30 Monday morning. He was afterwards brought to the U. B.

Cassidy was laid to rest near his daughter and son in the little graveyard
near Potosia. He leaves a widow and son and many friends. The deceased was
aged 68 years, 9 months and 25 days. The pallbearers were Mr. Bonnes, Mr.
VanDusen, A. Crouch, Mr. Elliot, Mr. Larson and Mr. Pearson.
