I am searching for information on my grandfather, Patrick Cassidy, whom none of us ever knew. I have very little information on him other than his birthday (1907, according to an Irish Free State passport used when he came to the US, I assume) and the fact that he came from Cavan.
No one in the family knows where he went or what happened to him. I know he lived in Corona, Queens/Long Island for a time in the mid-1930s. That's about it. We thought he had returned to Ireland, but even our relatives in Ireland (they lived around Glengavin, County Cavan) don't have any information. I have met cousins of mine in the area who have the last name McGovern, which seems to be another common surname in that area.
Anyone have any information that fits with these details?
