Seem to have a mystery here re a William Cass br 1815 and son James Michael Cass br 1838 both br England lived in Buffalo New York. Both were Master Mason, Stonecutters.
from The History of St. Paul’s Church, Buffalo NY 1817 to 1888 by Charles W. Evans.
“The cutting and laying of the stone is in charge of Mr. William S. Cass. Mr. Cass has had great experience
in English Cathedrals and Churches, superintending in 1835 the rehanging of Big Tom, of Lincoln; and he has built Gothic stone Churches at Haynton and at Easton,
in Lincolnshire.” The name CASS is inscribed in the stone spire of the addition. William S. is listed in the Buffalo City Directory from 1865 through 1876. The directory also has a listing for a firm William S. Cass & Co. in 1871 and a
listing for Cass & Sons in 1873. William S. is listed for the last time as Sexton at St. Paul’s Church in 1876.
For some reason when I go looking for their death dates which would be around the late 1870s I cannot find them... Neither one is buried with their wives in Buffalo New York cemetery...
There is a letter written by one of Wm's daughters that says about James Michael Cass... no mention of her fathers death tho
The letter closes, “ poor Jim dying away from all of us but
thank God he did not realize it was death.”
I was on Ancestry and found someone who is doing Wm Cass and has him dying in the following place
Placé, Mayenne, Pays de la Loire, France
Have sent a message to them asking how they knew this
Is there somewhere on line that might list the cemeterys there in Mayenne Pays de la Loire France that would have those buried there named?
This is the 2nd time I have encountered Placé, Mayenne, Pays de la Loire, France in relation to this Cass family.... Why?
Thank you for any help anyone can give me
