Other Cassidy Lines!

Although The Cassity/Cassidy Family Association was formed to further research on the line that came from the Tygart's Valley in what is now Randolph County, West Virginia to the Licking River area of Kentucy, we had collected information on "other" Cassidy lines that were also in Virginia/West Virginia at the same time. When we opened our website we were soon contacted by many descendants of these Virginia, and still other, Cassidy branches, so we expanded our scope.

Some of these other Virginia Cassidy lines later migrated to other areas of Kentucky as well as Tennessee, North Carolina and Ohio and from there to other states. We know of Michael Cassidy, the lawyer and statesman, who settled in Fleming County, Kentucky. There was the family of William and Ann Cassady who settled in Halifax County, Virginia. Neil Casaty's line was in Augusta/Rockbridge County, Virginia and then some of them migrated to Washington County, Tennessee, Jefferson County, Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio. There was a Thomas and a Simon Cassedy in Montgomery County, Virginia who later migrated to Ohio. We have the descendants of Abram Casada who were in Wayne and Pulaski County, Kentucky and some later migrated to Indiana. The Benjamin Cassidy clan was found in the Tug Fork/Big Sandy area of Kentucky. Daniel Cassady migrated from Halifax County, Virginia to Mercer County, Kentucky and then to Edgar County, Illinois.

We also know of a Patrick Cassidy (son of James Cassidy) who was born in Newry, County Down, Ireland in 1738. He came to America before the Revolutionary War (c. 1752) and fought in the Revolutionary War on the second Pennsylvania Continental Line. In about 1793, he founded the town of Newry, Pennsylvania in Huntington County (now in Blair County). Some of his descendants migrated to Indiana.

There were other early Southern Cassidy branches in our database. A Thomas Cassady was born in North Carolina and died in South Carolina. One William Cassady was born in South Carolina and died in Florida while another William Casiday was born in Georgia and died in Alabama. Levi, Patrick and Zachariah Cassady were born in South Carolina and died in Alabama.
