Notes for Robert “Bob” CASSELS

Accoriding to the 1911 census, Robert immigrated from Ireland in 1893. They were living in Cranbrook, British Columbia at the time with their daughter Jessie, and he was working in a sawmill.

In the 1921 census, they are still living in Cranbrook, with their newest daughter, Margaret. Robert is listed as a laborer.

On his death certificate, it says that Robert had been living in BC since 1896, and in Cranbrook since around 1911. He had been a laborer in the lumber industry, but had retired in 1933. He died of coronary heart disease, passing away on a sidewalk in front of an Overwaitea Store (a food store in BC for almost 100 years).
