Catherine Cassidy 18231875
James Cassidy 1824
Bridget Cassidy 18241904
Thomas Cassidy 1829
Mary Cassidy 1832
Joseph Cassidy 1834
Michael Cassidy 1838

Michael & Catherine Cassidy farmed in Clinton Co. Iowa until their deaths.
Their first born child Catherine, is my great, great Grandmother.
It has always been my dream to find where my roots in Ireland began!
These people are from my dad's mothers side.
Dad's fathers side may never be found.  We've been at it for over 30 yrs!

I need at least a marriage license for Michael & Catherine or a birth certificate for one or more of their children to prove which Michael Cassidy is mine.
I haven't been able to find any of those on the internet
including Ancestry.com and Family Search!

Just to clarify civil registration dates-
1864 onwards for all births, all deaths and all marriages
1845-1863 for non-Catholic marriages
