    • MHR note: Dorothy (Trumbo) Cassity was called Dollie. Her name was "Dorotha" on stoe at Grantsville, about 4 miles east of Purdin. She was aged 32 years, 5 months, 2 days. Their stonehad been moved from the burial place on the old "Al" Cassity farm, about 1 miles north of Linneus, Missouri by their grandson, Frank E. Cassity,as the old place on a hill in a field was not kept up. The stones of their two sons, John Alva and Isaac Franklin Cassity had been moved from the farm to the Grantsville Cemetery also. Frank Cassity said that Dorothy had a first cousin "Monnie" Trubmo. He may have been Monasas Trumbo.

      MRH note. Dorothy Trumbo's father had 6 silver teaspoons made of 6 silver dollars for part of her dowry.. Frank E. Cassity had them in 1950. She also had a copper candle snuffer which Frank gave to the historical society at Kirsville, Missouri. Dorothy's sister, Deborah (Trumbo) Jones got the silver cangle molds wich had been the property of the British General, Proctor, and was taken when his goods were confiscated. It became the property of John Trumbo of Bath County, Kentucky, father of Dorothy and Deborah, among other children.
