From Robert's obit, it doesn't look like he has any surviving offspring.

Further to the parents of the Thomas S. Cassidy identified at Reply #2, the closest fit I can see thus far for Thomas S., is a child registered at Kilrea subdistrict (Ballymoney district) as just 'Samuel' Cassidy, born on 16 March 1885 to parents William Cassidy and Margaret Mullan of Drumard (could it be that he was maybe baptised as Thomas?):
https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/birth_returns/births_1885/02650/1977021.pdf

This is the family in 1901:
http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Londonderry/Swatragh/Upperlands/1545901/

The same family in 1911:
http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Londonderry/Swatragh/Tirgarvil/611932/

William Cassidy and Margaret Mullan were married in 1876, their address was Killygullib, the two fathers recorded as Manus Cassidy and John Mullan, both labourers:
https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/marriage_returns/marriages_1876/11181/8097130.pdf

I'm guessing that their marriage address is the townland of Killygullib Glebe, a neighbouring townland of Drumard in the civil parish of Tamlaght O'Crilly, ie...

Killygullib Glebe:
https://www.townlands.ie/londonderry/loughinsholin/tamlaght-ocrilly/hervey-hill/killygullib-glebe/

Drumard:
https://www.townlands.ie/londonderry/loughinsholin/tamlaght-ocrilly/tamlaght/drumard/

As parents for William Cassidy, I wonder about the following folk who got married in 1851... Manus Cassidy and Jane McAllister of Bovedy (another neighbouring townland of Killygullib Glebe), the two fathers recorded as Francis Cassidy a farmer and John McAllister a schoolmaster:

The two neighbouring townlands in the civil parish of Maghera shown as their address in the above 1901 and 1911 census returns, are as follows...

Upperland:
https://www.townlands.ie/londonderry/loughinsholin/maghera/swatragh/upperland/

Tirgarvil:
https://www.townlands.ie/londonderry/loughinsholin/maghera/swatragh/tirgarvil/

Then this in the Belfast Newsletter of 1 March 1916: A PRISONER IN BULGARIA.  Mr. William Cassidy, Tergaioil, Upperlands, has received infomation that his son, Private Thomas Samuel Cassidy, Royal Irish Fusiliers, who was reported missing since the rearguard fighting in the Balkans on 7th December last, is a prisoner of war in Bulgaria.

And this in the Kirkintilloch Gazette of 31 March 1916: KIRKINTILLOCH SOLDIER'S TERRIBLE PLIGHT IN BULGARIA. Word has been received by his sister that Private Thomas Samuel Cassidy, a Kirkintilloch resident, is a prisoner of war at Tartar, Pazardjik, in Bulgaria.  Cassidy, who was a widower with three children, was a native of County Derry, and was about 30 years of age.  He had been for 13 years employed at the Nickel Works, Kirkintilloch, but enlisted on 14th September, in the Royal Garrison Artillery, but thinking he would get quicker into the firing line, he transferred to the Royal Irish Fusiliers, and was sent out to Gallipoli. He was then shifted to the Balkans, where all trace of him was lost till recently.  His letter, which shows that it took two months to reach his friends, states that he had been eight days in hospital, but does not explain whether he was ill or wounded.  He states that he, along with others, were caught like rats in a trap on 7th December.  He was one of a large number of prisoners in the place and they were all in a terrible state, with no boots, bad food, and bad clothing.  Most of them were going barefooted.

Martha McLatchey was born at Culdoo Upper townland in the civil parish of Ballymoney on 16 January 1879 to parents David McLatchey and Mary Trimbles:
https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/birth_returns/births_1879/02934/2074944.pdf

David McClatchy married Mary Pollock nee Trimble in 1876, both were widowed and living in Culduff (Culduff = Cul dubh = Culdoo), the two fathers were recorded as David McClatchy and James Trimble, both farmers:

Culdoo Upper:
https://www.townlands.ie/antrim/dunluce-upper/ballymoney/enagh/culdoo-upper/
 
This looks like Martha's mother and several siblings in 1901:

Martha McClatchey married William Campbell in 1902:
https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/marriage_returns/marriages_1902/10269/5737579.pdf

Perhaps a son Joseph Alexander Campbell born to William and Martha in 1903?

I have found the information about Thomas Samuel Cassidy, such as his date of birth and his parents were William Cassidy and Margaret Mullan and where he was born as we still live within that area. We know that he had 3 sons left behind in Scotland to his first wife Mary, though 2 of them came to Northern Ireland and one of those is my grandfather.

The one part I haven't been able to find out about him is where he may have been burried at.
Along with the other part of finding Manus Cassidy, as far as we got was that his fathers name was Francis Cassidy.

On Martha's side I had came across that she was married previously to a William Campbell, just was unsure where they were married or he came from so this helps, thank you.

Martha had two daughters to William, one was called Elizabeth and another Ellen Mary, so there may have been a son as well to add to the list. They seem to have all travelled to the US with Martha to be with Thomas Samuel.
Though she had one daughter with Thomas Samuel who was born in Scotland called Margaret Ethel Cassidy.
