CASSIDY MARY 10795/1895 UNKNOWN UNKNOWN YASS

The Burrowa News (NSW : 1874 - 1951)
Fri 28 Jun 1895

DEATH OF MRS. CASSIDY. — Another very old and respected resident of this town has passed over to the great majority. Mrs. Cassidy, mother of Mr. M. Conlon, died last Friday at the residence of her grand-daughter, Mrs T Comins, aged 81 years. The old lady had been a resident of Yass for 55 years, having arrived here in 1840. Her only children, Mr. M. Conlon and one daughter, survive her. She was known far and near as a generous warm-hearted woman, never letting an opportunity of doing a good turn slip. The funeral was largely attended.
 
Thanks gibbo.

Don't think the OCR has read the name correctly, looks like an apostrophe instead of [c] so left it blank. Not unusual for [Mc] names of course.
