Ida Edith Cassingham was born 7 May 1857 in Elgin, Kane, Illinois. She is the daughter of William Burdette Cassingham and Elizabeth Cummings. She died 27 Aug 1887 at age 30 in Rockford, Winnebago, Illinois and was buried there on 28 Aug 1887.
Children of Ida Edith Cassingham and David John Collins:
Ida Cassingham: Ida's death certificate lists her age at death as 26 years 3 months 20 days. This would compute back to 7 May 1861. Unfotunately, this date can not be correct since Ida is already listed in the 1860 census (Greenfield, Grundy, IL. p. 46) as 2 years old (meaning she would have been born in 1857-1858). Her marriage license to David says she would be 22 on her next birthday (which would compute to a birth of 1859-1860). I am assuming the death certificate computation of 7 May is correct -- only the year is wrong.
William: Birth and Marriage from his marriage license. Birth deduced from age of 25 years listed on license.
David: Birth, Death and Burial from his death certificate. Birth is deduced from the listed age of 46 years 3 months.
John: Birth from his "delayed birth certificate." The certificate was prepared in 1941; his sister Ida is listed as the informant.
(Baby Girl): Birth and Death from death certificate.
