bullet Mary Anne "Mollie" GILLESPIE was born on Nov 28 1868 in Bogside, District of Dunkinelly, Ireland, County Donegal. Mary emigrated to America about 1888. John Cassidy was active in the temperance cause when he came to America and joined a church sponsored "Total Abstinence Society". It was at one of the society's socials that he met Mary Ann Gillespie. They were married January 11, 1893 in St. John the Evalanglist Church in Philadelphia. They went to New York City on their honeymoon. They lived in Our Mother of Sorrows parish and operated a "Mom & Pop" store where the biggest item they sold was milk. When the law was passed that milk had to be pasteurized, the larger companies like Supplee' were able to force the smaller stores out of business.
After they closed the store, they moved from West Philadelphia to the North Philadelphia area where John bought and rented houses. He operated a Real Estate office at 238 North 11th Street, Philadelphia, in the 1920's. He later bought four adjoining properties at 234, 236, etc.
John and Mary lived in St. Elizabeth's parish in Philadelphia and stayed there for the remainder of their lives. John was President of the St. Elizabeth's TAB Society and the Holy Name Society. He was also active in the "Home Guard" during World War 1. it was on a summer camping trip (1917) with his unit of boys that he was introduced to Sea Isle City. During a storm, the group's tents became damaged and they were offered shelter in a large beach front home. John eventually bought this property and it became the "Strand Apartments". Over the years, the family has enjoyed many wonderful times in Sea Isle City.
Ireland was under English law which meant that when John's father, James Cassidy, died, the farm in Cullybackey was deeded to John as the eldest. John remembered as a young boy that his family home had been the gathering place for Mass as in that area, at that time, Mass was not allowed by the English. Catholic education was also forbidden and john had to go to the National School. The priest had to travel great distances and the news of his coming was spread by word of mouth. Mary Ann said she "had also felt the sting of religious bigotry" so they both agreed that a parcel of John's inherited land be deed to the Catholic Church in 1919 and a chapel was built as a memorial to the Cassidy family.
Mary Ann was the first of her family to come to America and the Cassidy home was open to many younger sisters and brothers. Nephews and nieces also found that all were welcome at "Aunt Mollies'. Some Philadelphia addresses that housed the family were:
1714 N. 21st Street
3400 Germantown Avenue
1700 Dover Street
2233 Norris Street
Her husband John Cassidy died in 1931. The Strand continued tp be a gathering place for the family and she managed it until it was sold in 1948. She emigrated about 1888. She died on Nov 7 1961 in Philadelphia, Penna.. Parents: Charles GILLESPIE and Catherine "Katy" GALLAGHER .
