The story of the old Percy road is a good one. It
describes how a present day road was once more than it
appears. It is also good to read this and envision how
Families change from Year to Year - Decade to Decade.
The story of the Percy road takes us through
Northumberland County - Brighton Township .
Northumberland County is where both Matthew
Sheffield Cassan and John Arthur Cassan's Families
settled in the 1830's
As we read the story the road takes us past one of our
Ancestors properties -- E. Cassan's Field. This E. Cassan
listed within the story is said to be Ernest Edward , son of
Edward Sheffield Cassan and Ann Smith and also the
Grandson of Capt.Matthew Sheffield Cassan.
As you can see families are as complex as a road that
changes with technology and time. Since the time of
Stephen Cassan in Ireland his children and their
children named their children after others within the
Family and in so doing this keeping a part of their past
