Thanks for getting in touch and clearing up Ed's occupation.
I understand that it was the Cassidys who emigrated to Australia who persuaded my great great uncle, Bill McConnell, to take his young family there after his wife died. One of Bill's daughters and I correspond at Christmas so I'll let her know that I've been in touch with the US side of the family.
My great great grandmother, Mary Cassidy McConnell, was George's sister, the youngest of the family as far as I'm aware. If you would like any info on her family you have only to ask. I also have info on other Cassidy lines that you may or may not have. I've received the same document from about 3 different people with Cassidy lines in it, so it's possible you may have received the same one at some point.
Good to hear from you and if would like anything please drop me an email.
