Nevada County








            Mr. Cassidy, of this review, was born in Grass Valley on the 16th day of January, 1874, his parents being Felix and Nellie (Tobin) Cassidy, and most of his life has been spent in his native city.  His father was born in Michigan, March 12, 1840, his parents having been early settlers of the Wolverine state.  In 1868 he came to California and has since been identified with the mining interests of this locality, having at different times filled the position of foreman for several mines of this district.  He was united in marriage to Miss Tobin, a lady of Irish birth, who was reared in the Empire state, and their union was blessed with six children, Fred F. being the third in order of birth.

            Mr. Cassidy is a graduate of the high school of Grass Valley, being a member of the class of 1899.  Since graduation he has been connected with the large grocery house of Clinch & Company, and at present is the head bookkeeper for the firm.  He is also a large stockholder and a director of the hardware firm of Brady & Cassidy, and is the resident agent of the Milwaukee Mechanics’ Insurance Company.

            In politics Mr. Cassidy is a Democrat.  He is a valued member of the Native Sons of the Golden West, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, and is a young man of sterling worth, well liked in social circles and justly merits the confidence of the business public.
