Our Cahill, Cassidy, Connor Genealogy

Of LaSalle and Livingston County, Illinois


This comprehensive, documented book on the Cahill, Cassidy and Connor families begins with the earliest known ancestors in Ireland and traces them to the present generation using the NGSQ (National Genealogical Society Quarterly) System.

The Cahill, Cassidy, O'Connor, Mooney and Quinn families all emigrated between the years 1846-1855 during or just after the "Great Irish Potato Famine." The Cahills were from County Clare while the Cassidys left Strokestown, County Roscommon and the Connors removed themselves from Cloontuskert Parish also in County Roscommon. During that time period Ireland was a country of 8.2 million population that lost more than 2 million of its people-half of them to starvation and disease, half by emigration. Our three families were among those 1 million emigrants. The Cahill and Connor families arrived in New York. The Cassidy family may have also arrived in NY, but we first locate them in Connecticut. The families then, at different times, moved to LaSalle Co., IL and then finally settled in Livingston Co., IL to raise their families.
