NOTE;

Cassie Adelaide Young married Asa John Bagley and they had several children together. Cassie was legally blind her entire life, and at some point her and Asa had a falling out and she left him and the kids and moved out. At about that same time Clyde Garvey rice placed an ad in the Machias paper seeking a house keeper to lighten the load around the rice farmstead for Etta May Burns, Clyde's wife, who they had just discovered had cancer. Cassie saw the ad and a meeting was set up and Cassie was hired on the spot. Cassie never spoke of her husband and never spoke of why she left him, and if Clyde and Etta knew, they took it to the grave.
Cassie soon became a fixture of the Rice Farmstead, gathering eggs in the morning, milking the cow, tending to the gardens and cooking. After Etta became bed ridden Cassie spent much more time tending to her needs, right up until Etta passed away. Clyde asked Cassie to stay on in exchange for board and rent, she agreed and went back to family chores right up until Clyde became sick and bed ridden. Cassie spend her time tending to Clyde until he passed away, and somewhere along the way Cassie and Clyde's son, Bernard had fallen in love.
Cassie was still married to Asa so her and Bernard Francis Rice never married, another reason they never married was because both Cassie and Bernard, who was also legally blind, feared if they had gotten married they would see a cut in their SSI checks.
There has been much speculation over the years as to why Cassie left Asa, and the main feeling is that Asa might of had a drinking problem, though there is no way to confirm that. The fact is, Cassie would get up and excuse herself and retreat to her bedroom as soon as anyone began to drink and it was clearly something that bothered her.
Cassie and Bernard were very deeply in love, as the many family photos show, and even though Cassie never spoke of her husband, her children were an entirely other matter. she had photos of all of them and the children often came out to the Rice farmhouse to visit with her. Her daughter Arlene married Porter "Bud" Kilton and lived in Marshfield, he would take Cassie and Bernard into Machias shopping, and her son Norman Bagley lived over in Jacksonville, he was their main transportation taking them to doctors appointments, and on shopping trips into Machias. Her son Leslie helped Bernard around the farmhouse and there are a number of photos of him with Bernard and with his mother Cassie.
At some point Cassie came down with cancer and ended up in the Machias Hospital. We made the trip down and took Bernard over to see her, she did not look good and was extremely weak. Not long after that Cassie was taken to the Calais Hospital, where she passed away. Her last wish was to be buried not far from where Bernard rice's cemetery plot would be, but a relative wanted her buried in Machias. My parents talked her into allowing Cassie to be buried in the Northfield Cemetery, where she lies today not far from Bernard Rice, though at least one official record lists her as being buried in Machias. Of the many pieces of papers I have from the Rice farmstead, perhaps one of my favorites is a old hand written note from one of the Rice kids to Cassie inviting her to a school play. As photos show, cassie was short and thin, almost frail and had a very weak voice but always offered up a very large smile, and while people drinking she clearly did not like, I never once saw her get mad or angry at anyone.
