From “Ludlow Lemont Cassidy”

Ludlow Lemont Cassidy married Jean Elizabeth Waters.  They were Canadians who moved to Massachusetts, U.S., and later returned to Canada, coming west to settle in Mirror.  They came via the Grand Trunk Pacific and as the line was not completed around the Great Lakes at that time, they had to detour by way of Chicago, then come back up to Winnipeg, and west.

Their daughter Edith went to Normal School in Camrose and taught school in Ripley, Mirror, Clive, Sargent, and Tees districts, and lastly at Saskatoon, retiring at Easter in 1920 when she married Mr. Joe Boyde.  They had a family of six children.  Edith’s son Percy married Mae Estell of Mirror.  Gordon Cassidy stayed in Mirror with his parents until they passed on, after which time he sold out and moved to B.C. to reside.
