Re: Who are the Hawaii Cassidays?
Hello cousin Paumalu,
I believe I am your 5th cousin, once removed and have information about a particular bit of your history, tho' not the very colorful Hawaiian history of which I gather you already know.Your gr-grandfather Benjamin B. Cassiday's father, Benjamin Franklin Cassiday was an electrician at the US Navy Yard, Mare Island, CA.His gr-father Samuel was an early resident of Petaluma, CA where he was editor of the Petaluma Argus. (One can google Samuel). Samuel's mother was Sarah Ann McGee (my 4th gr-aunt, yr 4th gr-gr-mother) who married John Cassiday.(If you google John Cassiday, you can see a lady's website (fr KY) w/ a picture of John Cassiday and many of his descendents).Sarah Ann's sister Margaret mar. John Mitchell (my 3rd gr-gr-parents).Their parents were Hugh McGee and Rosannah (Morrison) McGee, both b Ireland.That is as far back as I have info, tho I am happy to share the info I do have in greater detail if you are interested.Your query was posted quite a while ago and this may be info you have already acquired.At any rate I'd be happy to hear from you and wonder if you are still looking for family history.
Sincerely, Tom Nash
