To her daughter Teresa Cassidy, she leaves 6 sterling and to her grandson Francis Cassidy 1 sterling

Also 1 sterling to a Catherine O'Neil.

The will is signed by a Mary Murphy alias McGurk - she was aged 75 a widow when she died

Thank you so much everyone, this is incredible. I thought that Irish site you posted was something you had to pay for, didn't realise it was free. So is Teresa's mum Mary McGurk, and did Mary have the maiden name Murphy? Who is Edward McGurk?

The marriage record shows fathers as James Cassidy (alive) and James McGurk (dead).

Thanks so much, I mistakenly thought Andrew's father was John Cassidy and his mother Sarah Fullin, so this helped clear it up.

I'm confused here  :-\

Could anyone help me find Andrew's baptism/birth record as well?

I thought this was the Andrew Cassidy who married Teresa McGurk in 1878? or are you asking about a different Andrew?
