I've "rescued" an old photograph of Marie H. CASS which was taken at the
Hastings Studio in Boston, MA sometime in the 1880's or 1890's. Marie
appears to be in her teens at the time the photograph was taken. Based on
limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding
Marie and her family:
Marie Henrietta CASS was b. 8 Sept 1872 in Boston, MA to parents Henry N. or
H. CASS (b. 1843 in Holland-d. 1890) and Laura Johanna W. BOTTCHER or
BATCHER (b. 1845 in Germany- d.1921). Marie had at least two siblings,
Hermina Wiebke CASS (1867-1945); and Laura Louisa CASS (1869-1957). Marie
married George A. DEW (b. 1871 at Manchester, MA-d. 1943 - son of George W.
DEW and Susan S. BURNHAM) in Melrose, MA on 8 Sept 1896 and they had a son
George A. DEW who died 23 Oct 1900 in Melrose, MA at the age of less than
one year. Marie died 16 Sept 1932 in Corvallis, OR and is buried in the
Crystal Lake Cemetery in Corvallis, OR.

be returned to the care of her family. If you are a member of this family,
or you know someone who might be, please contact me.
